    Visited as a break from driving, found completely by accident. Lovely location for a stroll along the canal, fascinating locks to discover whilst enjoying the canal boats. Car parking only £2 for the day. Pub looked like a great place to eat, but no time today😂. Will visit again when in the area with.a little more time.

    I really enjoyed my visit it. It's a very interestingly place to visit, lovely surroundings and good eating places. I will definitely be going again.

    Excellent day out. The Locks are very interesting, we didn't go into the museum (£3 entry per person) but watching the boats navigate slowly through the 10 gates was very fun. Two nice pubs at the bottom with outdoor seating by the canal. If you are lucky there will be Morris dancers as well. A few barges sell small items at peak times (we went at Easter weekend). Well worth a visit!

    I ate here recently for lunch with my partner, sister and her baby daughter. The location is beautiful and the menu looks appetising enough. The service however was awful. It was ridiculously slow for our food to arrive and when it did it wasn't the best. The whitebait we had as a shared starter was fried to a crisp. We suspect it had been twice fried for some reason. All in all, the location is far better than the food. I would happily return for drinks, as a pub it is great, and the location is gorgeous, especially in the summer sun, but I wouldn't hurry back to eat there.

    Great place for a walk. Fascinating to see the locks in action with good places to eat. Wonderful for a picnic
