In a unique and beautiful location, The Trent Lock sits at the crux of 3 counties and 2 rivers, on the Trent Lock river junction. Serving an accomplished menu of well-loved British food, the views from the pretty al fresco garden are spectacular. Interiorly, the pub has rustic furnishings, with exposed oaken beams, a grand hearth and British art.
Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Trent Lock menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Trent Lock ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.
Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.
With its highly distinctive and eye-catching situation, The Trent Lock Sawley is only a 15-minute walk from Long Eaton Train Station, on the edge of Nottinghamshire.

Good food, nice atmosphere, good service.
((((( 12 April 2016 by Karen from Nottingham
Were taken straight to our table, and didn't have to wait long for drink orders to be taken and menus given.
We both had Sunday lunch, which was very nice, lots of vegetables and yummy gravy.
I had an enormous sherry trifle for dessert which again was very good.
Our waitress was called Amanda who was very attentive and apologised for the wait but there wasn't any need to.

Food & service were fantastic. Love the decor and atmosphere they're trying to create, open fires etc....
sea bass was exceptional, all credit to the chef who cooked it.
Our waiter was very attentive had great knowledge of products and a new menu we might like. Lady on the bar was lovely and friendly and poured a nice pint of Stella.
Evening was spoiled by a very noisy table that sat next to us, would have stayed longer but couldn't hear our own conversation.

We came for father's day and was given voucher because poor food and staff. We came again with voucher my steak was wrong ask for medium to well done got rear to medium told waiter's didn't seem bothered we waited for bill to come for a good half hour we ended up asking another waiter's. It just seems that you are under staffed and staff that needs more training, so we have been again not happy so we won't be coming back it's a shame because you are in a lovely place and near the water witch makes it relaxing .
