Had a really lovely meal here, starter: garlic bread with melted cheese and salad, main: goats cheese and caramelised onion tart with more salad, sweet: lemon cheesecake. All presented very nicely, fresh salad, no limp bits, goats cheese tart and the garlic bread was nice and hot, the plates were hot, the sweet was very lemony with bits of lemon... More

Sunday lunch and in fact the other menu choices are excellent. Well varied and extremely well prepared. Our latest visit was for Sunday lunch; the food was perfectly presented, was made from properly prepared ingredients as opposed to a bulk bag of this or that and the service was superb. Portion size is also very good and will cater for... More

We dropped in without a booking. We were quickly seated and presented with an extensive menu AND a specials' board. Our waitress was very pleasant and was happy to advise on the menu. When the food arrived, the portions were massive and delicious in equal measure. We just about managed dessert - we were full! but it was worth it.... More

This pub was recommended to me and the first few times I ate there the food was good. This has changed. I thought I would give the pub a fair chance and have been two or three times in the last 2 months and the food was poor on each of those visits. On one visit, the pork steak was... More

Thank you for your review, I am sorry to hear of your disappointment,, we do recall an issue with a pork steak, our recollection is also that it was taken off the bill, had you have had a dessert this would also have been complimentary. Please be assured we take all feedback seriously and whilst I could invite you back... More

Really nice pub in Billingborough (there is only 1 now) with a good atmosphere - always warm. Currently has 4 cask ales and all the other stuff on fizzy tap. It changed hands several years ago and very little has changed. It's well cooked pub food. Fresh veg and home made deserts. For some reason you always get three kinds... More

We were taken here for a meal by friends, on a mid-week evening, and the atmosphere was immediately good as we walked through the door. Excellent food, good value menu at £11.99 for two courses. 3 local beers, welcoming & friendly.
