Kings Lock Pub, Middlewich

As a change from the ubiquitous salad which I have been consuming whilst she who must be obeyedd  is away I joined some boating friends for the curry night at the Kings Lock pub.  I suppose when the barman had to check if they were still doing curry - at 7.30pm - I should have been suspicious:  there was one other diner.
The food?, no, stuff. arrived within a few minutes and comprised something under 2oz of chicken smothered in a generic canned curry sauce and rice which was swimming in water and starch.  O yes, there was also a popadum which required repeated bending before it would tear and a mini naan bread which they had not managed to spoil. The "curry" was just warm enough not to qualify as frappe.
Expending any more words on this subject  is a waste of mine and your time.


  1. As an update - the King's Lock Inn didn't survive very long with those tenants. It was bought by Cornerstone Inns in April 2014 and has been transformed - by the end of 2014 it was #1 based on Trip Advisor reviews of over 2000 restaurants in Cheshire. So you might want to give it another go if you're ever on the Trent & Mersey or the Middlewich branch of the Shropshire Union.

  2. Thank you for the good news.
    I shall definitely give another try when up that way later this year.
    it is always useful to get updates
