fantastic beer garden with play area for the children, situated on the national cycle route which runs along the chesterfield canal, great food choices with very helpful staff members. There is a boat trips on certain days, plenty of outside and inside seating areas. With Worksop town centre a short walk away what's not to like. Well done everyone.

This is such a nice classy place with not a bad item on the menu. It is rather expensive but plan for it in advance. It's well worth it.

Excellent food and prompt service. We had exactly one hour to eat and the restaurant was very crowded. Our server was attentive and made sure we made it out on time for our appt. The food was great $150 for a two person meal but worth it. Had crab cake and wedge salad Surf and Turf and Lobster Ravioli

I wanted to take my husband to dinner on Saturday February 18th for his birthday. When we walked in there were 3 hostesses. None of the 3 smiled or said a thing to welcome us. When I said I would like a table for 2. I was told it would be an awfully long wait. When I asked, how long... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch at Lockkeepers. At my request, we were seated by the windows overlooking the river. The ambiance is subdued with quiet music and conservative decor in dark colors. Portions were generous and well prepared. I had grilled salmon, and my husband had Arctic char. The coffee was acceptable but not good enough to have... More

The food is excellent and atmosphere was very nice! Service was great ! Would definitely go back here again but I would like to go in warmer weather because there is an outdoor eating area with a very nice view!

This is an wonderful restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. The variety of entrées on the menu allowed everyone in our group to select their favorite foods. I had a chicken dish and I can't wait to return to try one of the other entrées.

We attended a wedding and had their dinner buffet. It was excellent. The roast beef just melted in your mouth. Best tasting beef I've ever had. Loved the potatoes with the skins and the veggie mixed was fantastic. Nothing bad at all about this place

Sometimes my husband and I just want a nice meal to split along with an app. They have a great antipasto plate they we split along with several nice dishes to choose from. It doesn't hurt that they have a superior selection of Bourbon, Scotch and Whiskey along with knowledgeable bartenders.

I have been traveling to the Independence/Rockside Rd area regularly for almost a year, and Lockkeepers consistently provides the best food and service in the area. The menu is adapted to the season, and the pasta - made fresh daily - is some of the best I've had anywhere. I typically dine at the bar when solo, but will eat... More
