Description: A traditional canal side watering hole, steeped in waterways culture and heritage. Boat shaped bar features no corporates but 6 local craft ales and 3 local craft lagers are made available alongside real ciders and perrys. The food is quite simply out of this world, locally sourced of course, contemporary interpretations of heritage cuisine using traditional methods. Chef Tom's fresh and loving preparation of all dishes reflects his passion for cooking and the satisfaction he gets from delivering more than is expected. Enjoy lively folk sessions in the bar and waterside entertainment in the summer, including the Middlewich Folk 'n' Boat Festival in June. Slow down, take a break and find a way to enjoy Dean's hospitality and The King's Lock Experience.

Called in here for lunch and we were disappointed that the items we were looking at on the menu were not available, menu on line appeared different to in the pub. Not impressed.

Have eaten here several times before. Last night's meal was as excellent as previous. I had the breaded chicken escalope. Hot, well cooked and extremely tasty. Served with smashed new potatoes, buttered curly kale and a side dish of pepper sauce. My friends had the cheese and red onion pie and a burger. Food and service was excellent. Can highly recommend the elderflower and cucumber cider also. Brilliant place to eat. Always highly recommended. Thank you

Lovely setting but food lacking this time. Ordered a burger at this visit. Unfortunately it was poor. The bacon fat had not been cooked at all. There were no relishes or guerkins with the burger, so it was very bland. The lady serving didn't ask me if there was anything wrong. As it was a family meal on holiday I didn't want to ruin the atmosphere by complaining, but if the waitress had asked I would have returned it and had the bacon properly cooked.

Came here on sat evening with friends visiting us for a quick drink. Weather was nice so opted to sit out in the lovely beer garden. Lovely atmosphere, also pleasant inside too. Will be returning for food.

Turned up on a Thursday afternoon only to find the pub shut. Spoke to half a dozen or so other people who were hanging around whom were also wondering if it was opening. At just before 1pm, with still no sign of life, our group decided to head off to another nearby pub. It appears this place opens on a whim and serves food as and when it feels like it. Had great meal at the nearby White Bear. Next time we will head straight there.
