This restaurant is a little gem in Horncastle. Food and service is second to none, we have never been disappointed. The beat the clock menu is exceptional value for money and I would recommend anyone to visit.

No question aobut the quality of this experience. Touring the Wolds, we ate here on two consecutive nights following a local recommendation on the 'Beat the Clock' offer. Superb hot food, wonderful service - about the best we have encountered anywhere - and we eat out a lot in many diverse restaurants and areas - and would always eat here... More

The midweek specials being excellent value without loosing any of the quality. The waitress's are always very pleasant, service with a smile but also... More

Was greeted by a friendly face that offered to either take us to our table straight away or sit in the lounge like area by the bar to wait for the rest of our party to arrive. We chose to sit in comfort by the bar and order drinks. After the whole party arrived (6 guests in total) we remained... More

We had booked for 2 people for wedding anniversary meal at 6.30pm. We arrived early and were pleasantly surprised that we were offered their 'Beat the clock' menu which actually finishes at 6.30pm. We didn't have to mention it, the very pleasant young waitress offered to check to check it would be OK after we were seated. The restaurant was... More

The place was filling up as we were seated. Excellent friendly service from the two waitresses. The food was well presented, quick to... More
