This place used to be so much better. They've changed the menu in the last year or so. It's gone all american - My cheesy chips were soggy and cold and served in a small red plastic basket.

Ah the Lock Tavern. I feel like I've been coming here man and boy!

But, your experience here will entirely depend on when you come. If you're here on the weekend during the day, it's an ideal spot to grab a pint and relax. If you can tolerate hipsters staring at you and wondering why you're not wearing a trilby or cultivating a moustache. But that's ok.

In the evening, it does get busy, and...more
