Went for dinner with mother and father, had table booked only to find there was no vegetarian menu. Was given an option of premade chicken curry but with chicken removed, which is not even an option as chicken pieces will still be left in curry. No jug of water offered to table either. Quite disappointed.

Been going here for pub grub for the last 17 years and its only gotten better over the years, most notably in the last 2. The lunch time menu is mostly wraps, sandwiches, burgers etc, no roast beef dinner in sight, which I really like. Today I was there and given the cold weather I decided to have a bowl... More

The food is typically pub like but very very good pub like. They have a wide selection of craft beers and their Hendricks, elderflower tonic and cucumber combo is a winner. Whether stopping in for a gin are going the whole hog Lock 13 is a little gem.

Food is delicious, although the service is usually very slow. We once waited an hour for our food to be served from our order been taken.

I eat here a lot as it's close to work and my first choice to bring a group. It's very good food and great value for money.

Great service at Lock 13 again. We usually eat here with a big gang of friends and the food is always excellent and the team are really accommodating. We have a big gang of kids with us and they let them order first and keep on top of the both adults and kids food timings. Chicken wings are amazing. I... More
