Paid a return trip to this old fashioned English pub in the bust town of Louth on a crowded market day. The steak and ale pie was super and my wife enjoyed a home made lamb burger with gorgeous hand cut chips (I sampled them and they were just how chips should be). There are no pretensions in this pub... More

Excellent food and very good staff, our visit was very pleasurable and we were all impressed with the quality of the food and politeness of the staff, we managed to meet the management and found them very obliging and paid attention to detail. I can be extremely critical about quality of food and hygiene wherever I have a meal, all... More

Second time I've popped in here when on a solo shopping trip to Louth. Once again staff very friendly and welcoming. Leek and potato soup was gorgeous! Pub is a little gem, real fire, low ceilings, menu good for a small place and reasonable, locally sourced food. If the locals use it then it's got to be good!

First time in there and I loved it. I have never felt so welcome in a new place before, and the fire place is a gem when it's cold outside. Polite and friendly staff, rivaled only by the customers there. They also have 'speckled hen' on tap which is my favorite

Small and perfectly formed! Lunch here mid-week. Cosy i.e. smal, old style and "honest" pub. Great friendly attentive staff. Small coal/log open fire to warm one's parts too! Gammon steak was awesome as was ham, egg and chips. Very well kept ale including 6X. Excellent quality food, excellent value for money, great atmosphere - old style and very welcoming -... More

Small, cozy pub with good beer, nice people and a log fire too. What's not to like. We popped in for one and stayed the whole night. Good selection of well kept beers.

Fantastic old pub - that's the building. Everything else is dire!! Reasonable choice of beers but no choice of wine and red was dreadful- served in an airline style 1/4 bottle. Choice was take it or leave it- I rather wished I had left it. Service was acceptable but can't say more than that. Had planned to eat but that... More

Lovely historic old pub with wood-panelled front bar. Good beer, a friendly welcome, and the best steak and ale pie I've had for ages. Only a limited menu of "pub favourites" , but good value.
