The waiter Tom is charming witty helpful and attentive five stars for this young man. He scoured the place to find a peppermint teabag for my friend when all they served was English tea. He was very careful that the food I received was completely gluten free were my dietary requirements. It is worth visiting the five bells just to... More

Used to visit The Five Bells a couple of times every month but, after two or three poor experiences, we hadn't been for 3 years. Been twice now in the past few weeks & both times it has been back to its best. Traditional village pub serving good traditional pub food.

Visiting relatives in this area we decided to have lunch at a traditional pub with a difference. We certainly got that! Our Party included a 96 year old in a wheelchair but this was no problem for the staff. Access was easy and once inside the pub was a Grotto of curios, including a wishing well, stuffed animals, old trade... More

Took mother in law to be with my fiancé . We had an ok dinner , service was a little slow but restaurant and pub was packed due to screening of the England football game . I ordered the belly pork it had a large lump of fat that hadn't been cooked out otherwise the meal was tasty .

Lovely food with good options. Customer service can't be faulted. Would be an excellent review if some of the meals were more reasonably priced. Very dog friendly which is great. I think Lincoln in general is missing a trick with hardy any places being dog friendly so we will be back to the five bells

Visited on a wednesday night and indulged in their steak night. Steaks were cooked to perfection and all came exactly as ordered following delicious startes. Dogs are welcome in this pub/restaurant and all around us were cute bundles of fur behaving immaculately whilst their owners ate. We began to feel left out cos we didnt have one! House wine which...
