This place is OK, it has a huge menu, good solid home made type food, atmosphere is OK, kind of like your nans special back room. The guy serving was quite straight faced, everyone else was friendly. Starters were bizarre, I had the prawn tempura and had 4 prawns for £5.95, not too happy about that, would have been nicer... More

We popped in at 5:50 on a Friday night. We hadn't booked as there were only three of us. It was no problem that you couldn't fit us in but it was obvious you didn't even want to try and accommodate us. At this point you had no other customers in to eat as kitchens open at 6. You did... More

We ate evening dinner in the bar here with two dogs, and we were made very welcome. The food was excellent and on Mon-Thurs between 6 and 7.30pm there's a 'beat the clock' deal - the time you order is the price you pay. We ordered at 6.40 so made quite a saving on our main meals! Best veggie nut... More

While staying at Rural Roosts a few miles away my wife and I ate here 6 nights out of 7. The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. Good menu with a good mix of dishes and prices. Can highly recommend to anybody who like good food and a friendly atmosphere.

Nice little pub and B and B in a lovely quiet rural setting. Only about 3 miles from Lincoln Cathedral and Castle. Well run family establishment. This was our first visit. Will certainly be back. Good home cooked food, great menu choices. Couldn't do enough for us. The only downside is not really wheelchair or mobility wheel friendly.

Visited here with family last Sunday. My mum ordered prawn cocktail for a starter, it was the size of a main meal!!! We then had the Sunday roast I ordered the vegetarian option which was really nice with homemade proper veggie gravy, fresh vegetables cooked perfectly. Mum ordered the chicken in white wine sauce and really enjoyed it. Very good... More
