We had an excellent lunchtime meal on Sunday. Although all four of us were vegan the meal was well presented and tasty, which is unusual for vegan pub food. Further, the ambience and friendliness of the staff could not have been bettered. Non veggies during this visit were equally impressed. Highly recommended.

Love the 'local pub/community' atmosphere that the rum runner provides. Staff are always friendly and welcoming and the food is beautiful. I would recommend calling in to anyone visiting.

This is by far and away the best pub in Retford. Sue's food is always good and the cellar is stocked with some really nice ales, including the ever popular Harvest Pale. The place is frequented by people from every walk of life and the punters are friendly and talkative. Great place.
