user reviews of the Lock Keeper, Chesterfield

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A large newish pub with an associated Premier Inns hotel. A large car park. A broken down themed waterwheel sculpture near the main door filled with foul stagnant water is fairly symbolic of the place. Inside, find yourself a table without grubby chairs.
Geared to providing meals for families so expect to find yourself eating in a kindergarten as kids run to and fro from the large 2 per hour supervised play area. Lots of gimmicky food offers and deals. Staff are professionally friendly, probably genuinely friendly - it's hard to tell the difference sometimes.
Main meals are not particularly cheap and not particularly high quality. My chicken & mushroom pie, chips and peas for 7 plus was just about edible and that's the best I can say about it. One real ale, Jennings Snecklifter offered and this was good stuff but the rest were the usual range of un-notable brownish and pale yellow liquids. I normally avoid this place but had to go due to family social pressure, it was chucking down with rain and was the nearest of its type to where I live.
If you are a family with young kids you will probably love the place but I'm an old grump and I don't.
