Blackthorn _ left this review about The Old Lock & Weir

A pleasant and rustic pub in an idyllic spot alongside the River Avon, this has an all together more traditional feel than it’s somewhat brasher neighbour and is a great spot to while away a few hours on a sunny afternoon.

There are old flagstones throughout the pub and a mixture of exposed stone walls and white plasterwork. There are a couple of bars at the front and a long narrow room up a few steps at the back. The front bar to the right is the larger of the two and is split in to two by a freestanding chimney with an old wood burning stove in. Some of the tables in here were laid up for food, and there were some pleasant coloured pencil drawings of the local scenery on the walls, much of it for sale.

At the rear is a long wood panelled bar and a smallish TV at each end. One of these was off and the other was showing the Grand Prix, but it didn’t seem too intrusive. Various photos of pub events were pinned up above the bar. We didn’t check the menu, but there seemed to be various Sunday lunch options at around the £8 mark. Outside is an extensive terrace alongside the river, much of it covered. There is some more seating immediately outside the pub.

Beers on tap were 6X, Otter Ale and Gem. Ciders were Blackthorn, Thatcher’s Gold and Addlestones.

The Riverside cottage pub is on two levels. The upper level is the bar area, with flagstone floor and tall bar stools. Downstairs are three linked drinking/dining rooms. An added attraction, is the heated patio on the river's edge overlooking the Weir. Excellent for a warm evening drink in relaxing surroundings.
