    Locks Pub

    Sunday afternoon Jam - a couple of years ago ...brilliant atmosphere. Not sure about current menu but wish them luck and really hope this gem of a pub flourishes. (I am sure the menu will evolve when they find out what their market is and what they want).
  2. Tonplus here are some otters for you. (taken moored at Somerleyton Oct 18).

    Locks Pub

    Good news ! I love this pub and I am sure everyone has said this to you...if you can keep the previous atmosphere and quirkiness while adding your style, beer and food I for one will be happy and top of my list for a visit when next on the river. Best Wishes - John
  4. Great stuff that it is staying open good luck and wish them every success. At least we didn't lose it like the Berney Arms.

    Lads Week

    Great photos. Can you tell me when you moored at Geldeston (village) are there posts or is it rhond anchors ? Cheers John

    Locks Inn

    What a shame The Locks Inn is going to be closed for maintenance when we usually head down there on 20th / 21st Oct. It is usually the highlight of our week having the Sunday afternoon in a great atmosphere with musicians doing their own thing while we have a few jars. We have been visiting the Locks for many years....hope it doesn't change too much if at all.
  7. I hope the lads that work in the yacht station will be staying, I have always found them to be helpful and friendly.
  8. Great memories of holidays on this boat sitting out on the aft deck watching the sunset with a glass or two. Looks like she could do with a bit of TLC but not looking bad for an old girl. I still think there would be a call for this design in a few modern Broads boats. I for one would look to hire something similar.
  9. Years ago I can remember approaching Norwich and we crept over the speed limit inadvertently, a river police launch was coming towards us and he held up a sign about the size of a tennis racquet that said 'SLOW DOWN' then as we got closer he turned it round and it said 'THANK YOU' ...I thought that was brilliant
  10. We used to hire this boat from Easticks many years ago, fond memories. I remember it was one of the first hire boats to have a video player and you got to choose 4 films from their library. she had a spacious forward cabin / lounge and a double 4 poster ! cabin. The main attraction for us was the rear open deck with table and chairs to sit out and have meals and a few sundowners...ah the memories. Just wondered with all the new builds going for sleek looks and all the mod cons whether something like dear old Petite Magnum's layout would be popular today ? ........
  11. Sorry there has to be a better way to fund moorings so we can keep the charm of the Broads that we all love surely the answer is not PARKING METERS lining our beloved waterway. THEY JUST DON'T LOOK RIGHT !
