Always lovely top quality food, friendly & very welcoming, most sauces are made with Arrowroot so are gluten free, staff very helpful in checking this for you! Great place for celebrations! The best Sunday lunch around though a little more expensive than others but you get what you pay for! Our personal favourites are the belly pork followed by the... More

This is a truly great pub, from the menu, to the setting, the service and of course the delicious food! We are always welcomed as a family, and we love visiting here.

The Barley Mow has never failed to impress us, from the moment you enter, to the moment you leave, the service, attention, atmosphere and most importantly of all - the food, is just amazing ! The parking is vast, the log fires are so welcoming, the beers are all very tempting, it is best to ask at booking for either... More

Great service and restaurant quality food. Very well run, not your usual pub food. The presentation of the dishes and quality of ingredients shines through. You will not be disappointed. PS. We did not book but would not have left a bad review if there were no tables available!!!

How can you drive 15 miles to a recommended restaurant to be told they are fully booked up, what kind of restaurant doesn't have tables for people just dropping by. Absolutely pathetic!!!!!!!

Thank you for your review, I am sorry you weren't able to get a table for Sunday lunch, I believe you came in last Sunday, which indeed was very busy, we did 130 lunches and was full up all day.With regards to your comment that we are a "JOKE", I think this is a harsh comment, because having a fully...

A group of eight had sunday lunch. They were very welcoming and friendly even though we booked at the last minuet. The food was excellent, much better than most pub lunches. Starters and desserts were great and a good selection. Would recommend.

We called here for their two course lunch. We had pate and steak and it was one of the best steaks I had had in along while. I asked for salad instead of chips. With two medium glasses of wine it came to £38 - really good value. The service was excellent and the place reasonably full for a lunch... More

Thank you for your brilliant review, I was very pleased to read you enjoyed your meal and found it to be great value. Our set menus and early bird menus are very popular, we appreciate that not all customers like certain things, ie chips with their steak and are always happy to swap things about, after all you are the...

Wherever you go in the world, the best recommendation above all is to find where the local people regularly eat. This, for the Boston/Skegness area has to be the Barley Mow. If you want cheap and cheerful massed produced 'pub grub' then this isn't the place to go - as with most things in life - you really do get... More
