About
Situated just a 10 minute drive from Bristol and Bath, and a short walk from Keynsham train station, the Lock Keeper has it all; a stunning riverside location, with a huge beer garden, serving freshly prepared British food. Not to forget, Young's award winning beers are always on tap! Plus, we have our very own Petanque pitch and play host to the Brunel league. Whether it’s a Sunday roast, a birthday dinner or a lunch time catch up that you have planned, we’ve got you covered.

Enjoyed a great meal that was served quickly. The attention of the staff was second to none. In addition, the beer was extremely well kept and complemented the food. We were with an elderly relative that needed easy access to both dining seats and facilities.

Really nice pub food in a beautiful pub. Service was excellent and very casual. Gastro without being pretentious. I'd definitely return for family and couple meals.

Went with a large group of friends for a drink and decided to have a bit of food. Reasonable prices and food was nicely presented and tasty. Not the most inspirational menu but does what it says on the tin

Garden is fine for wheelchairs & dogs. However there is no shelter in the garden so make sure the weather is set fair.
