Sally and her crew are SO professional and welcoming. Great Ale, brewed in the pub (also delivered to your door and kept us rocking through covid) on tap is always fresh and beats bigger name brands by miles. The music is great. HEAVEN.

Truly Great Ale
Jan 2020
Brewed in the microbrewery out back, the beer is just delightful and, unusually these days, there's a proper choice of light to dark, under 4% to well over and a range of tastes. A beer drinker's heaven! And my wife rates their wine very highly too.

Just love the ales
Aug 2019
The ales brewed on the premises are a real gem (I took 16 bottles home) friendly staff & patrons. First time we went in there was a live band and it was humming so much i didn't want to leave. Love ale you will love this place.

Good Beer and Good Music
Jun 2019 • Couples
We visit regularly on a Saturday night for the live music. The bands they get in are generally very good with 1 or 2 exceptions over the last 12 months where I was not impressed. Otherwise very good. Real highlights are The Steve Fulsham Band, Still Remains, Motorpace, Feel the Noize, all of which have been superb.

Great beer brewed in their own micro-brewery. So much better than anything mass produced by the anyone serving the wider national market.

A real gem!
May 2019 • Friends
Old Nick's is a wonderful find! A beautiful old coaching inn with all modern amenities that don't detract from it's historic look and feel. I'd venture to say this if possibly the cleanest pub I've ever visited!

It has it's own ales - and very good they are too - made on the premises, a wide variety of live music from open mic nights to visiting bands, and the landlady goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome.

If I lived in that neck of the woods it would be my local!

If you are ever in or around Horncastle I can't recommend Old Nick's enough. Looking forward to visiting again.

Live music

We visit Old Nicks on a regular basis. There are always great live bands and an open mic night on a Wednesday. Cobra on fraught plus a good selection of beers that are brewed on the premises

Open mic night
Aug 2018 • Family
Stayed in Horncastle for the week and as it mid week it’s very quiet so looked forward to open mic night here at old Nick’s so went in and was having a good night until a patronising bar lady came over and said your kids are tired take them home. I thought it was a passing comment but when trying to order a drink she refused to serve me. My kids were better behaved in there than some regulars no sign anywhere says kids need to be out at a certain time. Nobody tells me when I’m on holiday to take my kids home I don’t care who she was the way she spoke was an absolute disgrace

I had written several drafts to this comment. But really all I have to say is if anyone is offended by being asked to take tired and irritable children home late at night because of their drinking are irresponsible. Please be assured it will not happen again.

Open Mic visit
Jul 2018 • Friends
Visited here as Hedgehog Reality (my wife Liz and myself) for their weekly (Wednesday Open Mic night). Landlady, Sally, was very helpful and acted as sound engineer. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening with some excellent home produced beer and some amazing musicians. Very impressed with Feel The Noize's lead guitarist.
