Ordered a continental meats pizza and asked for chilli to be added as chilli is present on other pizzas. Refused it's not company policy. Pub was empty and how long would it take to sprinkle chilli on a pizza?

I visited on 17 Match last and felt the restaurant or indeed the kitchen staff must have changed as the new menu food was very poor compared to the previous menu. I've been visiting this local hostelry for a number of years and indeed as a family we have hosted my fathers 80th birthday here a few years ago. However... More

Beautiful and stylish place set in a nice location next to the River Trent. Food was nicely presented and cooked well. The young staff were polite and attentive. Prices for both the drinks and the food were reasonable. Looking forward to going again.

My husband and I thought we would try the new menu out. We've been to this restaurant a couple of times in the past and have never left satisfied. We thought we'd give it another chance. The restaurant is set in a perfect setting and is at quick glance cosy inside. Close up the carpet and seating looks very tired... More

Well vintage inn you should be ashamed of yourself.had a flyer posted boasting your new menu and fresh food,but its rubbish .veg was uneatable and pies are as dry as a desert.instead of employing a person to press the button on a microwave invest in a good chef or you will end up with a empty pub.This place as gone...

Second visit here and the food was as good as the first time we went a while ago. The service was just as good it was the same waiter, tall stocky lad with blond hair he was so friendly and great with the little one, the only reason it's not a five star review is purely to do with the... More

We had a super family meal at the Trent Lock. Really loved the quality of food (I had risotto, then seabass - but everything we ordered was beautifully cooked), and the craft beers went down well! The service was very slow - almost an hour for our food to arrive - so if you're in a hurry you might want... More

Visited with my mum for a catch up and some nice food. Food was lovely as always - it came out within a reasonable amount of time. It hit 7pm and suddenly the place got very busy - didn't feel like there was enough staff really at that point just one chap trying his best! It took around 40 minutes... More
