Boatman’s Breakfast at The Lock Inn

No, I haven’t lost the plot – I’m not writing a blog post on our breakfast routine!  You might remember last year, I wrote a post called Boatman Hunting where I talked about our  namesake and the different places in which you can find ‘us’.  Within that post, I wrote about a small pub in a town near us called The Lock Inn in Bradford on Avon.  What’s ridiculous is that it’s only about half an hour from where we live.  It’s taken us over a year to actually get our backsides in gear and get there!

It was a grey drizzly day on our visit which was such a shame as the pub is located right on the canal (hence the name).  On a sunny day you can take advantage of the outdoor seating.  There is also a little stationary canal boat that you can sit in to have your food and drinks!

The interior is really quirky and eccentric with LOADS of memorabilia from yester-year displayed on the walls and the ceiling.

Onto the breakfast…JB had the Boatman’s Breakfast (I looked at what was included and decided it was too much!).  It included;  two rashers of bacon, egg, two sausages, smoked sausage, tomatoes, beans, mushrooms, fried potatoes and toast.

I went for what I thought was going to be a smaller plate from their ‘6 of the best breakfast’.  This included a fried egg, bacon, sausage, hash brown x2, toast.

It was midweek for our visit so it was pretty quiet but I would imagine at weekends this is a popular place for walkers and people using the canal.  The food was good – not great – but certainly no complaints and plenty of it so definite value for money.

Now we’ve knocked one place from our list, I’m keen to tick another off!
