Called for drinks on our way home from Woodhall Spa as there was an event on in this lovely little village. Service was great and we enjoyed our drinks in the outside area. Everywhere was clean and tidy. We will definitely be stopping to try the food next time we are driving through.

First class food and service at sensible prices. Very pleased that we had booked a table as the restaurant was very busy. We will certainly visit again.

A good menu selection at reasonable prices in a traditional pub which concentrates on food. Wander just a little from the A17 and you will not be disappointed. I agree with previous comments the early bird menu in the evening is very good value

A worthy pub, easy to park, and easy to drink not much more to say, food was ok, beer was ok. Its a Green King bitter and San Mig on tap. Nice enough, would go again
