We went for a meal midweek. We were the only, yes only customers in the dining hall which in itself was disconcerting. It should have made us think, but what could have been a warm setting with charm was lost. The bar area food was more booked...think! The food was well documented, but the overall output was medium if that.... More

Staying nearby in a cottage we wanted to see this hotel and the memorabilia. There are fascinating displays of 617 Squadron and some really interesting paintings and prints. We headed for the terrace bar on a lovely evening to enjoy a decent beer and a very reasonable Bacardi. Very pleasant staff and by the end of a stroll in the... More

I, along with around 20 friends attended an afternoon tea in the Garden Room recently. It was just as I'd hoped, very informal and inobtrusive, allowing us to catch up and enjoy our food. The food was lovely, my 11 year old son also attended and there was something for him (though he was a little disappointed to discover the... More

Having spent a wonderful day with my partner Celebrating his 60th in Lincolnshire at various Royal Air Force locations, I arranged to bring a close to the day with a very traditional Afternoon Tea in the Drawing Room of this wonderful hotel. The staff were so very welcoming and afternoon tea was a perfect end to a perfect day all... More

The hotel was very busy and we couldn't find a place in the lounge for pre lunch drinks so had to go straight to the table. Bit of a wait to get drinks and in fact the first course arrived before the drinks. Soup a bit 'thin' but tasted good, ham terrine ok picalilli with it too sharp. Roast beef... More

Called in on spec and loved all the history, the beautiful building, setting and charm of this place. Decided to have tea/coffee and teacakes. Unfortunately the teacakes had been toasted but were cold and there was minimal butter, so we had to ask for more. Would have asked for them to return with hot teacakes but we had a longish... More

Our team would have gladly replaced these and I am sorry that we... More

Had to visit BBMF, RAF Conningsby and meet folk in very rural Lincolnshire, so chose the old 97, 617 & 619 Sqn Mess to overnight and take a look around. A quiet Friday night (2 weddings and a birthday party the following day) so we used the restaurant for dinner which was enjoyable in all respects. Plenty of room to... More
