The Three Locks is a very traditional canal side venue residing on the Grand Union Canal dating from the early 1900’s. It is packed full of character, warmth and offers something for everyone, all year round. We also welcome our canine friends in the bar and garden areas. Our aim is to create an informal dining experience featuring fantastic fresh British food, a selection of wines and cocktails, beers and real ales.
