Dick & Jane

It's a family thing

In today's national chain, managed, franchised, themed pubs and Restaurants you'll find the cafe at the Lock Inn a pleasant reminder of when we were a nation of corner shop keepers. Owned and run by the same family since it was first opened in 1990 we are proud that we see many of the customers that first came all those years ago. We always do our best to make sure that your visit to our cafe is an enjoyable experience that you will wish to repeat.

Was breakfast invented at The Lock Inn?

No, we did not invent Breakfast. But the world famous "Boatman's Breakfast" as eaten by stars of stage, screen, and the world of sport too numerous to mention has helped to make it more fun.

Tea Beer Or A Wine?

We pride ourselves on making a proper pot of tea in the tradition of the True café, no complaints about our coffee either. But if it's a drink you need we have lager and cider on draught, and Real Ales that we are proud of. A good selection of wines and spirits, and our house wines won't turn your hair ginger.
