Went to the restaurant on spec, made welcome straight away, everywhere clean. Promptly served and order taken correctly- food promptly arrived, on hot plates - tasty and plenty of it. Staff helpful friendly and professional Can’t argue with that

Wow, what a place! This pub was enormous and seemed to be brimming with customers having a great time. Everyone seemed so happy, and you could feel the warm festive cheer. The manager was making sure he talked to the majority of his guests and also spent time out of his day to see if we were happy with our meals. It's brilliant to see a manager actually being on the floor working as hard as his team and not running the place from an office somewhere. All the team had honest and genuine smiles on thier faces, it must be due to working for a great management team. I wish more managers took a leaf out of thier books and did the same.

We stayed here 3 nights and it really was a lovely visit. Although the location was out of Lincoln, it was perfect----tranquil, relaxing and lots of space. The accomodation was good, at a very fair price. The pub itself was lovely, and the breakfasts and evening meals were excellent. And again at a fair price. The staff and management were also excellent. All in all, a really good find!

The best Christmas diner I have had. This is our first visit, as we have recently moved here. It's a lovely spot, but even better than that was ut early Christmas lunch, it was huge, and so taste, 5 **** We were served by a very nice yougl ady who was excellent at her job. We will now come here as often as our pockets will dictate. Thank you woodcocks

It's the first time we have stayed at Woodcock's and we will be booking again when we visit Lincoln. The staff were welcoming and friendly both at check-in and when we had evening meal and breakfast. The room we had was spacious and well decorated with tea and coffee provided. The only issue was that the shower gel was empty. We had a decent night's sleep and the room was quiet even though the rooms were all taken. We had dinner and breakfast in the Marston's Inn and the food was good quality at a fair price, if you book direct there was a discount on the evening meal. So a good stay generally and will look to book again.

Great stay at Woodcocks lodge just on the outskirts of Lincoln. Nice Modern building ( reception for key is in pub next door ) Room was fair size apart from carpet which had not been cleaned properly. Otherwise all very good inside. Stairs to first floor no lift. Great nights sleep no extra blanket in room if cold. Free car park out front. Excellent value and will stay here again.

I've stayed here several times when in Lincoln for work. It's always clean and comfy and I like the location. I've also stayed here with my kids before. There's a nice play area at the pub. The rooms are nice and good value. I especially like the breakfast and often get the takeaway sandwich option. The woman serving breakfast is always friendly and I like that you can grab a coffee at the buffet while you wait for your breakfast to go. Would happily stay again.

Absolutely awful room dust everywhere 2 older staff who weren't helpful at all. Dirty stained bedding and hand towels staff said it could be changed if I was to stay another night which i wasn't. Safe to say I wasted £100+ and had find an alternative hotel for the night.
