5 things to see and do in...Locksbottom

First published in News by

You’re in Locksbottom and you’ve got an hour to spare, where should you go, what should you do?

Vibe’s Christien Chaperlin found out...

Chapter One

News Shopper:

Locksbottom is home to the only Michelin starred restaurant in the borough. With menu items like Oysters and Orange Bavarois, Chapter One is Locksbottom’s answer to fine dining.

Have a drink

News Shopper:

Locksbottom isn’t short of pubs, there’s three within a short walk of each other. The Black Horse is a family friendly Ember Inns pub recommended by CAMRA or you could stop in at Ye Olde Whyte Lyon on Farnborough common; built in 1626 it’s one of the oldest pubs in the borough.

Shopping

News Shopper:

Even though Locksbottom isn’t all that big it has decent shopping. With a huge Sainsbury’s and a Lidl, grocery shopping is a breeze. Even the petrol station has an M&S food store.

A Walk In The Park

News Shopper:

Tugmutton common on Starts Hill Road is one of the only public green spaces in Locksbottom. In the summer it’s a perfect place for a picnic or just a leisurely stroll.

Make Some Noise

“16 Steps” is a music production school on Crofton Road that offers comprehensive tuition in Music production from beginners just starting out all the way to advanced level wannabe DJs.

I don't think these articles are written by people who have actually been to the locations concerned.

One could lose some time by taking a walk into Farnborough Park & seeing how the other half live. It's not unfriendly, people will smile at you & say hello. OK they are the housemaids & gardeners rather than the home owners, but they are always pleasant.

Don't bother with the playground though, the people there don't care to chat with strangers. Shame really because I can remember buying bottles of cider in the former Safeways when I was in my mid teens & drinking the same on Tugmutton Common, nobody cared. Today of course the local Snidewatch would call the police & I would be arrested for underage drinking.
