The Double Locks is situated in an idyllic location on the Exeter Ship Canal. It is just the place for a family day out, celebration, or having a lazy summer's afternoon next to the water. Many events are held during the year, such as real ale and cider festivals, annual dog show, and live music (see website for details). There is a large garden for the warmer weather, and two log fires and snug rooms inside the pub to keep out the winter chill.
