We are exceptionally lucky as we live close to the Generous Briton. We visit regularly for meals and have, without exception always had excellent food and hospitality. If you are visiting this part of Lincolnshire definitely worth taking a trip to Brant Broughton. Used a lot by locals which I think speaks volumes.

We found this pub by pure accident on Easter Bank Holiday Monday. It was a very pleasant experience. We hadn't booked but this was no problem, a table was found for us.The food was very good, cooked and presented well, and served by a young but very friendly, professional team. Will definitely visit again when in the area. Well done... More

This is as it says in the name a very generous pub. Good helpings, good beer and a pleasant group of staff. We were only there for a light lunch but it was very good. Give it a try if you are in the area.

The two of us dropped in for lunch and were given a very warm welcome. The menu was varied and it was difficult to choose what to eat. My wife had the sea bass which she enjoyed very much. I had the open beef Wellington and have to say it was possibly the best I've had. Will definitely be going... More

Superb value for early bird menu, from 6pm to 7pm. The main menu is a good quality pub offer. You get a warm welcome, pub atmosphere and good value. Less than half mile from A17 so well worth a visit if passing from A1 towards Fens or ViceVersa.

We came to the pub with family members for a belated Christmas meal, it was a themed quiz night this particular evening (burns night). There was a set meal of two courses (main and desert) followed by a Scottish themed quiz. The food was excellent (as always) and everyone throughly enjoyed the entertainment of the quiz. We always come back... More

We went before Xmas and expected something really good. The staff were excellent but the food i Is not that good. Don't understand why this place is rated so highly when there are many good restaurants and pubs around Lincoln. Sorry but not that good
