We come here every other week for food & usually order in the bar & sit by the log fire. You can eat in the restaurant but would need to book. They have a good range of wines & beers. The food is always excellent. A lovely setting by the River Trent, so popular with walkers. Thanks to Kizzy &... More

Wonderful location, would love to visit in the summer and sit in the garden. Service not great mainly due to the lack of staff. Sweet potato fries were amazing but the rest was disappointing. Two out of the five meals had to be sent back due to being cold/wrong. Only one out of the five meals was as it should... More

This pub is part of the village inn chain. It's in a very nice location and I look forward to visiting in the summer months. We were looked after well upon arrival even though it was very busy. 1. Be sure to reserve a table, it gets very busy. 2. The burger was very nice. Highly recommended. 3. The Sunday... More

I've been here quite a few times, the food is usually good, although service can be very slow if they are even a little busy, so although it has a nice beer garden I avoid in the summer. The problem I have with Trent Lock is that the service and the food is not always consistent with the kinds of... More

Have been here a few times now. Always friendly service. The food is always pretty decent and decent value. Especially if you order the 2/3 portions for a set price. Nice setting and often a real fire going in Autumn/Winter
