Bookings Policy

Please click on the ‘Book a Table link’ on the main page to reserve a table.

All bookings require card details to be entered, and in the event of a ‘no-show’ or reduction in numbers (without prior warning) then a charge of £10 per person will be applied. So for example, if you book a table for 6 people but only arrive with 4 people, £20 will be debited from your card.

In this current climate we are not taking bookings of more than 6 guests. All guests in one party must be from one household or bubble (Tier 2 restrictions). This will change when it is safe to do so.

Bookings are not confirmed until you have entered your card details and received a confirmation through ResDiary.

On the day of your booking, in case you are running late, we will hold your table for 15 minutes. It will then be released. Please remember that if you arrive late you will have less time at your table to enjoy your meal with us.

Please contact us via info@thelockupbristol.com for any queries regarding bookings.
