Smallest amount of meat I have ever had on a Sunday lunch. The pictures on the website must be of another pub! Where was the roaring fire? Never even too my coat off ! Ambiance? Missing! Sorry but not what it said on the tin!

I would give this place 6 stars if I could. Great quirky little boozer with fantastic food at very reasonable prices. This is some of the best pub food in the area along with the George at Kirton. Well worth a drive out. Give it...a go, you will not be disappointed.More

We’ve just been for Sunday dinner and I have to say it was beyond excellent, were so lucky to have such a hidden gem so close. Every single thing on the plate was so delicious and cooked to perfection. Thank you! Hurray! Fresh food cooked...perfectly! Can’t wait to return xMore

This pub has changed so much over the last few years. Went on a Saturday teatime to try the food. We both had the steak pies with mash and minted peas. Food was lovely all home cooked. Will try the Sunday lunch next time

We booked a table of four for a Friday evening as my friend had been recommended the pub. Three of us ordered the pie and one ribs for mains. All the food was good and we also ordered one chocolate brownie and one bread and...butter pudding which were also good. The waitress was lovely and very friendly. My only criticism is the fact that the menu at the pub and the menu on line are very different. The choice was not as varied and I was disappointed with this.More

We'd called here for drinks on a sunny day to sit by the river, but had not eaten here. This small pub, is how pubs used to be. Full of character, a mixture of old and new. Music fans will love the memorabilia on the...walls. Being a good Lincolnshire lass I went for sausage and mash. Don't be fooled by the simple title though, this was delicious butchers sausages browned to perfection, placed on top of buttery, mustard mash. A good smattering of fresh peas and caramelised onions, finished with a perfect proper gravy. When the food took half an hour 1. we didn't mind a bit sitting by the window relaxing and 2. we knew it was gonna be freshly cooked food. 10/10 Chef! So we'll be booking and heading in for Sunday lunch next time we're back in Lincolnshire. Pink beef, what's not to like...More

The Dog and Gun in East Butterwick did not fail to offer the best Sunday lunch I've had in a very long time ... Our family consisted of 11 people which did not faze the kitchen .. everything that was put in front of us...was devoured .. everything arrived piping hot .. delicious fare .. scummy puddings .. terrific service from very pleasant .. kind and helpful staff .. well worth a visit but be warned it's a busy busy place which is always a good sign ... Highly recommended 😁More

Recently visited on a Saturday night with friends for a meal. Quite a varied menu, we all had starters and a main course, everything on the menu was available and they were happy to tweek some of the ingredients to suit. Considering it was fairly...busy both in the bar and people eating, the service was excellent, very friendly, not too long to wait between courses. Also worth trying was their own specialty beers brewed on site. We will return.More

The meal takes a long time to arrive, but this was made longer by having to re-order because the first choice (pork ribs) of three people was not available. The replacement dish was disappointing also, a rather durable pork cutlet. The pies and gammon were...good however. Ambience fine, beer excellent, staff pleasant and welcoming. Perhaps we were a bit unlucky.More
