The Locksbrook Inn
multiple recommendation boxes ticked at one seating
As we’d expect from a Bath Pub Company venture, The Locksbrook Inn – directly adjacent to the canal, offering easy access from/to the cycle/towpaths and a spacious beer garden to drop anchor in – serves up really good great food. But don’t forget: it’s also a proper, proper pub…
Combining multiple spaces including a cosy snug to cosy-up in, a Georgian bar to prop up, a funky dining room to sprawl out in, various function rooms and that huge alfresco deck, the Inn offers all-comers (including those all-important four-legged canine friends) the perfect kick-back spot to chill out in whatever the occasion… or weather. Menus too are equally easygoing and super-accessible, with the kitchen effortlessly moving along from breakfast/brunch through lunch and onwards – when the sun starts to set, expect to witness heartwarming family friendly fare and long’n’lingering suppers being served up at the same time, and with apparent ease; if there’s a more welcoming neighbourhood pub in Bath, we’ve yet to discover it.
Go speedy (the sandwiches here are amazing), or party on with a sharing platter, or go “classic” (oh of course the fish and chips are fabulous, so too are the burgers, and so too is the Sunday Roast splurge)… or go foodie fabulous like we did on our most recent Tales of the Riverbank excursion, when we sampled delights including a tumble of calamari in an tempura-like batter so light it literally melted on the tongue, the best Moules Frites that I’ve tasted since I last dropped anchor at Le Zinneke (in this instance, the freshest, fattest mussels ever, bathing in a Thai-themed broth that was almost too tantalising for words but didn’t quite shut me up) and a Sticky Toffee Pudding that’s way, waaaay too good to share (so do the decent think and order one each, even if you are having cheese, which is highly recommended too.)
Our whole selection was upper-echelon restaurant standard at prices that proved reassuringly down-to-earth, and the staff an absolute joy to meet – that’s multiple recommendation boxes ticked at one seating, then. Dive in to The Locksbrook Inn and make your own splash.
