Lock Keeper

Keynsham Road, Keynsham, Bristol, BS31 2DD
Lock Keeper


Situated just a 10-minute drive from Bristol and Bath, and a short walk from Keynsham train station, the Lock Keeper has it all; a stunning riverside location, with a huge beer garden, serving freshly prepared British food.

Whether it’s a Sunday roast, a birthday dinner or a lunch time catch up that you have planned, they've got you covered.

The huge beer garden is simply the best place to be on a sunny afternoon. Imagine sitting there with a glass of something cold, listening to the river Avon drifting past, the water falling over the weir, and the smell of their wonderful home-cooked meals filling your nostrils.

Even in the winter months, our garden provides a wonderful look-out from the decking area. Why not enjoy a pint or a glass of wine under the warmth radiating from the canopy heaters?


Car park on site, accessible toilets, ramp/level access throughout.
