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.


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.
