Website

Built in 1560 & modernised in the 1660's, until a few years ago the only way to reach the "locks" was by river with the beer being delivered by boat. Even now if you value your suspension the "road" is better traversed by a 4X4. The Locks is a great example of an old English pub retaining the atmosphere of the olde days. It serves a great variety of Real ales and superb food. The locks is one of the few places where live entertainment can still be enjoyed and has won awards for "Best live music venue" and nominated for "best broadland pint"
