“Good Location.”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Another dog friendly place is great to find so many.The staff were very friendly and welcoming. being on the canal side it does get very busy,this is fun and quirky cafe decorated in the 1950/50 style.The food excellent and large portions but we did manage to eat it all. There is a large no nonsense but large menu at a reasonably good price.

“More cafe than inn, lovely quirky place.”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

B.O.A. Is a lovely place to spend a sunny late spring day..
We ended up canal side and called into the lock inn cafe a sat in the small barge on the canal.
The choice of where to sit is as varied as is the food choice. There is seating inside near the bar/order point, outside under a canopy, in a couple of wooden sun rooms, or just sat overlooking the canal.
Service is very efficient and the owner Dick is a very cheerful friendly man with a G S O H.
Food is good value for money. Really liked this place I'm sure we will return.

“Delicious food, good value & wonderful service”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

We visited for a birthday breakfast because we had heard how delicious it was & of course decided to indulge in the famous boat mans breakfast!!........the staff were friendly and polite, the food arrived swiftly and was hot and delicious!!.......I didn't manage to finish mine but only because there was so much although my son managed to polish his off!!.......I couldn't believe how reasonable the prices were considering the amount of food that arrived on my plate!!........I would recommend this place and it's food to any and everyone.......we are already planning our return and can't wait!!

“Fun and quirky place with gorgeous location”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We really liked the Lock Inn Café. It has an amazing range of places to sit including little sheds and a moored boat, and its location next to the lock is very nice indeed.

We were there at the wrong time of day for a meal but enjoyed a nice drink and snack and would be more than happy to go back some time.

“Friendly, good banter, welcoming”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

If you want a friendly welcome, decent food and a good atmosphere to have a chat with your friends, this is the place to be in Bradford on Avon. Relaxed and unpretentious.
