From the lovely warm welcome we received at the bar, the attentiveness of the waitress throughout and to the culinary skills of this outstanding Chef all made for a lovely evening with some amazing food - cauliflower valuate, squid, scallops, bream and Chateaubriand. Everyonel made us feel very spacial by going above and beyond.

A perfect 10 out 10. Beautifully cooked T-Bone Steak & a equally if not better Loin of Venison. The staff could help enough & the atmosphere was friendly with everyone in the restaurant enjoying themselves. A perfect night out.

We called after a visit to Lincoln Market. Great food & a varied menu on offer. We had the home-made chicken & leek pies with fresh veg. Cheerful staff & a good pint of John Smiths bitter. Good atmosphere in a very clean environment. Will return - thank you.

we booked about 2pm for a 6pm table. (they serve to 7pm on a Sunday) Arrived 5.50pm drinks and shown to our table. 3 of us chose to have the 'go large carvery' and one regular carvery. unfortunately when we went up to the carvery the plates were cold. This transferred to the food that was not piping hot either... More
