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.

Walk to this pub from the centre as we thought it looked lovely. But was fairly dissatisfied when we arrived
The beers were all craft type and fairly expensive was going to eat but thought against it as the pub was very quiet.
Must say it's on a lovely position right on the canal

Thank Ray B

Visited the Kings Lock last night and had a lovely evening with gorgeous freshly cooked food. We had Haddock, chunky chips & mushy peas which was beautifully cooked & my husband had the cheese & red onion pie which he said was very tasty. The portions are good & there is a lovely friendly welcoming atmosphere in the pub.

Have eaten here on a couple of occasions and always found it to be very good. Special mention must go for the selection of beers etc. Cosy with decent and chatty staff

We have stopped here several times before but the new menu and owners have done a great job in making this pretty canal-side pub even better! The meals we had were of excellent quality and good value for money. The hand-pumped beer was also excellent. We shall definitely call again.

We were staying in Middlewich for a couple of nights and this place was recommended. We were shown to a table straight away and the staff were very pleasant and efficient. Unfortunately I didn't read the small print and ordered the cook it yourself rump steak to be cooked by the chef, only to be told that it had to be done on the hot stone........as I like my steak very well done I would probably lay still be there! However had the surf and turf instead which was very nice. In my opinion the food is very nice but overpriced.
