However portion sizes were very generous and in general a lovely meal. Would... read more

This was the first time that I had been for Sunday lunch here, but would definitely go back. The food was delicious, staff friendly and helpful, and there was a relaxed atmosphere.

My brother has invited us to Lincoln from Oxford for many years, and taken us to many different restaurants. After the meal I asked him " Why had it taken so long to visit this place with us? He said he thought we would not like 'country' food!! Brothers!!! We loved it.

Wishing to avoid the crush in town we decided to try somewhere more relaxed. We had not been here before but will definitely be coming back. The service was excellent as was the food. We all...

We had a very good, value for money Sunday lunch. Home cooked food, lots of veg and all the trimmings. Crumble for dessert with custard, yummy. Will definitely go again. Lovely cosy pub, looks like its been recently decorated.

We visited this pub an a Thursday evening with friends and ordered at 7.05 pm. A fantastic meal which cost us £7.05 per meal. So pleased we went for the beat the clock menu. Delighted with the meal and the service. We will certainly return.

We have been going here every week for a couple of months now, and its such a good pub and exactly what a proper pub should be. The new owners Liz and Paul are great, and the rest of the team are really welcoming too. They have new beers on regularly which are very well kept, and the food is... More
