After being intrigued after passing this pub on our way to Lincoln we decided to stop off for lunch. There is a fair sized restaurant and lots of seating. We only wanted a quick bite - a sausage baguette and an omelette. Both of which were nice. I think we were a tad disappointed with the full menu as the... More

The food was great and so was the friendly service. Nothing I could fault with this meal. The pub was proper home cooked food and a old fashioned pub, which is just what we wanted.

The food here was absolutely excellent and couldn't fault the food here whatsoever. However attitude of one particular staff was rude and made us feel very uncomfortable and unwelcoming! Maybe new customer service skills should be looked at.

We were a booking of 14 so we pre-ordered, we got the menu through with no prices on it and it was poor choice. We all came away thinking how rude some of the staff were. A girl at the bar failed to crack a smile once and seemed to not know anything about her job when i asked her... More

Went here yesterday with some of the guys from work. For clarity I should mention that I work with people who have autism and learning disabilities. Firstly, we entered the small bar area with three wheelchairs, then realised we needed to be in the lounge off of we all went. Apart from a few funny looks nobody paid any attention.... More

You won't find a better cooked steak anywhere it was tasty cooked to perfection served with fresh homecooked vegetabkes and onion rings choice of chips or potatoes. Highly recommend a visit nice restaurant good and friendly service. Not the first time we have been and definitely won't be the last. Excellent.

We booked here for a lunchtime treat to celebrate my father's birthday. The pub is effectively split into two containing a lounge/locals bar area, & on the other side is the restaurant which consists of a very narrow bar area and the dining area adjacent to it. It seems that they prefer you to order your food from the bar... More

We ate here on 3 consecutive evenings so it cannot be bad! No shortage of food, you will not go hungry! In general the food was very good but with one poor dish on the last evening. This was, however, well dealt with by the staff and it is very good value for money. Peolple are all very nice &... More
