“A real friendly quality place, a must for a visit”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Having recently moved to the area we discovered this fantastic restaurant and have been back twice since, the food is excellent and all local fresh produce is used to create the vast selection of meals available, the service is first class and friendly.
There is an area where you can take your dog with you and enjoy a great meal, and also a section where no animals are allowed, this suits us because of our 2 dogs.
We are looking forward to some sunny weather so we can sit outside in the garden area.
Highly recommended

“Back again but disappointed”
Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

Came back here after thoroughly enjoying it the last time we came. Food was very good apart from my husbands crumble wasn't cooked. It was the atmosphere that was the problem. It was smelly which my 4 year old kindly pointed out very loudly I think it was something they were burning on the log burner. There were a lot of people in who must be local patrons as they all knew each other so we felt a little like we are intruding. Also they had brought their dogs! The dogs were well behaved but I really don't like sharing a restaurant with animals sorry. Probably won't come back next year unless it has a full refurb!

“Fantastic value in a lovely setting.”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

A hidden gem. Situated next to a lovely church. May appear in need of a lick paint on exterior but don't be fooled interior is warm and inviting but the best thing is the food. M eals are home cooked by Dean and the range of dishes extensive. Try home made curries and steak sizzlers. You won't be disappointed.

“Never again”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Greeted by a not so welcoming host, ordered food that was to be fair "cheap" but when it came we soon realised why, my partner and I both had the ribs that we had to cave the tough meat off. My daughter had the pizza and the cheese tasted foul. We visited based on the previous reviews but wont be coming back again!

“Why didn't I go here on the first night!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

On the last day of our stay in skegness we decided to try the charnwood after reading the reviews on here. On arriving first impressions were it was lovely out in the country side easy to forget you are only 5mins from butlins. The place was pretty empty so with a little apprehension we went inside. What a lovely meal we had. There was lots of choice on the menu of all types of cuisine and only £6.25. All the food was home cooked even the chips were obviously hand cut portions were plenty. Deserts were only £2.50 and they were huge. If we had come here the first night we would have ate here every night. If you are looking for somewhere to eat a really nice restaurant quality meal go to the charnwood you won't be disappointed.
