Nice pub, nice food

First time we'd been for a few quite a few years. Four of us went for a family meal and had nice evening, good selection of beer and good pub grub. What more do you need.

If your looking for good hearty food and a restaurant with a friendly atmosphere and character, this is the place to be!! Food is always to a high standard along with the friendly service. The prices are more than reasonable but if you do choose to go to the Five Bells make sure you ring and book because they alway... More

The Five Bells is a lovely country pub with great character & a friendly atmosphere. All the staff were very friendly & obliging. The food was excellent, hot, full of flavour & very well presented. Good value for money. Highly recommended, definitely worth a visit.

Just thought I would share our miserable experience last night. We have been going to this pub reasonably regularly over the past two or three years, and decided to have a meal there to celebrate father in laws birthday. We arrived at 5pm and at that point the pub was quiet and no more than a quarter full. Starters were... More

We live in Bassingham and used to love going to the bells for a treat. Over the last year sadly it has gone down hill the food quality is poor and the prices have been hiked up. I really don't mind paying for good food but I'm sorry to say the prices don't reflect the quality any more.

On this occassion the tables were positioned so close together the whole dining experience was very uncomfortable. We were... More

My parents love The Five Bells and took us for Sunday lunch. Pub itself is very quaint and nicely decorated. Menu had good choices and prices very reasonable. Meals themselves were very tasty, good portions and lots of vegetables to go with the Sunday roasts. My first niggle is after looking forward to a lovely roast beef lunch, when I... More

We had a lovely meal for our anniversary . The food was excellent , and the service first class . The charm of this pub/ restaurant is that it is in a beautiful part of rural Lincolnshire in a real old fashioned building with great charactor
