I like this place. It's friendly, crowded and extremely basic. It food is of transport cafe quality and is not trying to be high end. Don't go there expecting that. It's a gorgeous location by the canal, all complicated, nooked and crannied and with plenty of atmosphere. They are extremely dog friendly which is another huge bonus i f you... More

Great café / bar- really good value for money with extensive menu and large portions. One of the best Plough mans lunches I've had. Also had a good breakfast and sevice was really speedy considering how busy it was.

2 ploughmans lunches poor amount of cheese, stale bread roll, no apple or grapes but a huge amount of pickled cabbage (random) which was salty. Choose somewhere else

Initially came here to meet a couple to discuss their forthcoming wedding (I'm a wedding photographer) We were able to have a private chat over coffee in one of the gorgeous summer houses in the garden. Didn't know it was open in the evening until today & it perfect location for our evening meeting. Decided after the meeting to have... More

We stopped here for an evening meal, after exploring Bradford-on-Avon and walking along the tow-path. "Fun with Dick & Jane" the owners advertise, their rule being they welcome anyone (kids, dogs, wet/muddy booted patrons - all welcome). Various locations, not just inside their cafe, but a small glass-windowed barge and various cabins. Food was excellent and plenty of choice, plenty... More

I love this place - down to earth and serve delicious amazing food . Friendly staff . Everyone welcome. You can pop in for a light bite, a pint or a good pub food . My son favourite is to have his custard and cake on the canal boat .

Whilst exploring Bradford on Avon, we found ourselves at The Lock Inn, and having studied the extensive menu situated outside, we ordered 2 lunchtime meals. There is ample seating available both outside and in, but due to the warm weather having brought out many bugs and insects, we opted for an inside table. We ordered the Gammon meals, both with...

We ended up in the Lock Inn after staying at Dick and Jane's holiday apartments. The pub is well located on the canal. The beer was good. We didn't sample the food but the portion sizes looked good

Who'd have thought you could get good food on a busy Sunday lunchtime. This place gets busy so don't expect a swift in and out. Find a table (remember the number), grab a menu (look on both sides for all the options) and get someone in the party to go and order. Fortunately it was a sunny day so we... More
