“Best restaurant for miles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

Fantastic food and service. We went there last night for my birthday. I found the staff to be brilliant, polite and friendly, they even brought out some ice cream on a decorated plate and sang happy birthday to me. The food was freshly cooked to perfection. I had the fillet steak and my partner had a mixed grill. The peppercorn sauce was divine!!

“Disappointed!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We went to the Barley mow with the family to celebrate a family birthday. Unfortunately the event was ruined by the poor quality of the food. Three of the guests ordered mixed grill and when they arrived the majority of the meat was still raw inside. This was extremely disappointing considering that the food is fairly expensive. Initially they wre going to take off the price of one mixed grill, however, as three of hte guests could not eat their meal we demanded that the three mixed grills be taken off the bill. To their credit they did this with no arguments, unfortunately the celebration had already been ruined. Not somewhere I will be visiing again.

“Large birthday party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

A large group of us, 17 in total went tonight (23-2-13), even though it was a little way out, on a cold February night, it was not a disappointment.
As a large group, most of us had to pre-order the food we wanted.
The staff were friendly & very polite which is very rare now days.
The restaurant itself was a large conservatory out the back of the pub, the smoking area was well thought out as well, with a wind sheltered gazebo with a sensor heater. The pub had a cosy feel about it with the fires burning.

The food was just delicious, the portion sizes were very good, tap water supplied on the tables & topped up once finished. The desert menu was varied, but would highly recommend the dark chocolate & walnut brownie with chocolate sauce & ice-cream.

The restaurant gave the birthday girl a plate with Happy Birthday written on it, a pot of ice-cream with a candle in it, and a heart shaped biscuit. we thought this was a thoughtful treat for the occasion.

Certainly would go back again and try the set menu's, nice to find another decent place to eat in this area.

The only criticism would be that it was a little expensive, however as it was for a special occasion we did not mind the cost.

Thank you for your review, I'm happy you enjoyed your party evening with us last weekend, we introduced the smoking area this winter and has been greatly received by our customers.
We do an excellent early bird menu, 5.30 to 7pm from a Tuesday to Friday £12 for 2 courses, very popular, definitely need to book, especially in the summer as we get busy in the height of the season.
I look forward to seeing you again very soon

“Best Restaurant in Lincolnshire.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

I have had several meals here but have yet to review it. We ate here last week and the produce is quite simply unparalleled in this county. Jane and her team concentrate on quality local produce being prepared with great care and imagination. The menu is extensive enough for anybody to find something they fancy and keep regulars coming back to try other things. Consistently high standards. Go.
