hi all, had a visit to the locks inn at geldeston today, i have never been there before, we thought we would try it as i have heard so much about it on the forum,well i wasn't impressed at all,it was quite busy for a sunday as you would expect, but the glasses we got our drinks in were absolutely filthy,i have never seen glasses like it, and from what i saw i wouldn't contemplate having a meal in there either,the place might look quaint and oldy worldy but i think i will give it a miss next time. Cheers

Hi Lez, yes it was a little while ago. The only thing to watch is the bottom of Geldeston Dyke which has large rocks on it At very low tides proceed with care if tangled up with props or steering gear can be nasty.

Sorry to hear of a bad experience with the Locks Inn unusual, I do hope you had a quiet word, one inexperienced pot boy can make all the difference and ought to be put right. Probably has been, but too late of one customer it seems Frown

Well you said, "Aim for the green post!" Bill...

Hi Sue,

I'm sorry to hear about your bad experience. I was at the Locks Inn Weds afternoon and evening and everything was fine then. I also had a very good steak and ale pie in the evening time.

Whilst there is never an excuse for a dirty glass, the Locks Inn does have it's busiest time on a Saturday night with live music and Sunday with a lot more visitors.

I hope you went and had a word with the barstaff and got the glasses changed and fresh drinks rather than suffered in silence.

Keith

heh bill,
the village moorings(geldeston dyke ???)was were we spent many happy hours as kids, there used to be a track/road that led to the shop and pub. and also a large tree there which my brother and i and our cousins used to climb, it fell/blew down one year and that was the only time we ever reached the top lol.

Yes where Rowancraft is. Always thought it was a shame that they took away the railway bridge. It would have made a great walk/cycle route. being higher up you would have had a view down onto the river which would have been unusual.
