The Lock Inn Cafe (Canal Side Cafe), Bradford on Avon

Its website advertises "Fun with Dick & Jane Since 1990" and promotes the breakfasts over anything else. If it is a pub then it's nothing special. Beers were from the St Austell stable - Bath Ales' Gem and St Austell Barracuda as well as Mena Dhu stout on font. I couldn't work out why they needed garish plastic tablecloths on the outside tables unless it's evidence of their "quirkiness". We had one drink here and moved on.

Timbrells Yard, Bradford on Avon

The restaurant proper is well away from the bar so don't be put off visiting for just a drink. It's not an old-fashioned boozer though by any means. It wouldn't make it into my personal GBG (my best pint in town was in the Stumble Inn which is not yet listed on this site) but the beer was OK - I'm not the biggest fan of Otter Bitter so I went for a pint of Maverick (Brightside Brewing?) instead. Other options were available. FWIW, food was quite expensive but was very good as was our room.

The Canal Tavern, Bradford on Avon

Recently reopened, possibly only for the summer. We went in here because they were queuing three deep at the Lock Inn opposite. It wasn't too inspired a choice. Wadworth IPA for £3.50 was average, 6X also on sale. No view of the canal either. Has poor recent reviews on other websites and little to commend it at present.
