Moored up here on a Tuesday evening & wanted to get some food. The sign stated food served all day every day... Went in and it was desolate bar a lonely looking barman. I asked if food was being served but was told food was only available on a Friday evening? Such a shame as it is a nice looking pub inside and has bags of potential

Located on the canal bank close to Pennington Nature reserve it seems an ideal spot for a thriving pub and is the ony one on the canal for a good few miles. I have only ever been in from the canalside so I don't know what the surrounding area is like, but from the patio area there are not many houses n close proximaty.

The food and drink were fine, and the service was courteous. Did have cask on (didn't try it) and a reasonable selection of draughts/bottles. I have only visited during the day and got the impression that the overall trade was not great, it does have sport but surely there must be an opportunity to make this a more upmarket/destination place

I also recently went to the Dover Lock after a walk along the canal with my dog, i found the staff very welcoming. I sat outside on the veranda with my dog and drank my well deserved pint. I intend to go back there with my wife and son to have a meal in what seems like a clean & friendly pub. I was looking at the menu whilst i was there and thought the prices very reasonable. The Guiness i had was second to none, one of the best i had drank in a long time.
As for the policy on dogs i was discussing this with a fellow dog walker who was sat across from me. We both agreed we would not expect a pub which serves food to allow dogs in with the exception of guide dogs, neither of us could think of a pub which does allow dogs, with a large seating area outside i cannot see the problem.
