went for their early menu. food was superb and the value was quite frankly stupendous. £9.95 for two courses of well cooked meals was astounding. would revisit if in the area again.

Perfect surroundings for my husband & myself to spend our Anniversary , enjoying the best meal served by friendly staff.... As soon as we walked in we were welcomed by friendly knowledgeable staff who served us but didn't rush us... we enjoyed a glass of wine in the welcoming fireplace seating while the waitress took our order.

We had a large family birthday celebration at this restaurant and it was fantastic! All the food was delicious and beautifully presented – everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Service was great & friendly. Loved the cosy area by the fire as you walk in and can appreciate the little outside area by the water would be lovely in summer too.... More

We have been going to Shakesbys for years, so when we were looking for a venue to celebrate my Dad's birthday it was a no brainer! Once again the welcome was warm and friendly. Food was superb as it always is. Can't knock it. Once again, a lovely visit and we will keep coming back.

Great food and atmosphere but the 2 tables reserved for a couple are less than romantic with one under a bright light and the other by a set of bars giving a less than cheerful feel

Ive eaten here a few times, the whole experience is lovely. On entering the restaurant the interior is calm rustic and relaxed,which is what appeals to me. the brickwork mixed with the rustic tables and sparkling glassware all adds to the charm. The menu is good with different specials and an early bird menu if you fancy a quick bite... More

Mark Shakesby has succeeded in creating a wonderful restaurant in Horncastle. The staff are attentive but not intrusive, the food is fine dining but not too 'chefie' the wines are superb and not over priced. The whole set up is just faultless. The early evening 'Beat the Clock' menu is amazing value and the food is still top notch. Book... More

What a lovely relaxing resturant. Food was great and the staff very friendly. Plenty of space between the tables. Lovely seating area beside the open fire whilst looking at the menu and ordering your food.
