The fabulous Henry Cecil Hotel up the hill uses this as a spillover and that's exactly how I ended up here. It's a fairly small pub with about half a dozen very different rooms above. Mine had some fun features, such as a roll top bath (someone had pinched the plug that day). There's a lot going for the place... More

OK, I'm an old romantic (this stay was a present for my 65th birthday from my wife) and our large room (Stag) at the Bull was a perfect boudoir. The bathroom was roomy and immaculately clean with very modern shower and a standalone deep bath and plentiful toiletries. The bed was huge with quality cotton sheets and there was even... More

We booked in here as a couple not long after getting back from our honeymoon. We were given a room upgrade. The room was just gorgeous. The tea and coffee facilities were great and we really felt like they hadn't cut costs to give us a really enjoyable stay! Breakfast and evening meals were good, and considering it was the... More

We stayed in Room 4, Wild Horse, a so called Luxury Room. It did have a huge bathroom and a separate loo but when I am paying for a luxury room I expect to be able to use the loo in the middle if the night without having to go into a public area. The bathroom and loo and room... More

We stayed on a Saturday night and had dinner in the bar. Food was very good (only feedback was a little more space between courses would have been good). A Our roms were lovely and had everything we needed, and staff were very quick to find me a. On-feather pillow. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend it.

Even though we live in Stamford we had never eaten here so we visited mid week for a spot of lunch and were pretty impressed. You can get good and tasty lunch options such as fancy fish and chips or pie with a coffee or tea for £8. Some Stamford eateries charge that for a sandwich. It's charming and cosy... More

Good menu with great selection & local options to choice. Always quality food & good service. Also good range of ales on draught. Old world pub like a lot of places in Stamford , nicely laid out & away from some of the busier parts of town, though can still often be full.
