We decided to nip out for a quick bite to eat and chose the Generous Briton as it wasn't far from where we lived. Beautiful food, excellent service - the decor of the restaurant is a bit bland, you're there for the food I know but it does help if there's a bit of an atmosphere.

First time visitors, driven by reviews on this site to try somewhere new. Very glad we did. Excellent food, at a good price, and very considerate, friendly and fast service. The only negative was that it was very busy and we had to share a large table, not really a problem and they were very apologetic. We will reserve next... More

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.
