We stayed at the Garden House but as the dogs were not allowed in the dining room there we walked a little way down the road to this pub and found a wonderful welcome for us and our two little dogs (the staff brought a bowl of water for them!). The food was absolutely lovely and we had a thoroughly... More

Thank you for your review, dogs are more than welcome in any area of our bar and a bowl of water should be the least you can expect. We also have a number of dog friendly rooms available for your consideration next time you are in Stamford More

We stayed overnight to celebrate a friends wedding at a nearby hotel. The rooms, food and service at this hotel are excellent and the staff are very friendly! I would highly recommend this hotel as a great place to stay. It's close to both the town centre and Burghley House. Thanks to the staff for an enjoyable stay.

After visiting last summer with my family and enjoying lovely food, staff and fellow clientele, I met colleagues and suppliers there on my recommendation. Eating off the sandwiches menu as normal on working lunches, I was a little disappointed that the sandwiches, at seven and seven and a half pounds, were served on thin-sliced "supermarket" bread, and my ham looked...

I apologise that you weren’t entirely happy with our sandwich offerings on your recent trip to us, I would like to re assure you that all our bread is delivered daily from Kings Cliffe Bakery, and ham from Stilton butchers so I’m disappointed that they weren’t up to scratch on this occasion. I do hope you return and allow us... More

Attentive friendly staff and good quality food well presented. We had the farmhouse platter to share for a lunch and this was very tasty prepared with local produce

We had lunch here on a beautiful sunny day. The garden is lovely to sit in & there is plenty of natural shade if you're not a sun worshiper. We went for a sandwich each which is served with chips. Sandwiches were great with lovely fresh wholegrain bread. I had cheese and tomato chutney & the chutney was delicious. Chips... More
