We often stay here and enjoy the food and hotel very much ..and last week was no exception .Great stuff Staff are always very kind and well trained . The new menus are nice but unsure if they are going to work especially scrapping the...old lunchtime and offering items from the more expensive nightime one .Well over £10 for most mains and starts £8.Sandwiches are now £9 so we did not try lunch the next day .Dont get too expensive for Rasen daytime lunchersMore

I celebrated my 58th birthday at the Advocate Arms on Nov 17th and found the service absolutely wonderful. The service was top notch, the staff were their usual friendly selves and the food- i just can't fault it at all. Good size portion and the...waiting staff just left me to it. I am a regular customer to the Arms and have always had a good meal there. I was given chocolate cake for my dessert as part of the celebration. Full praise go to all who work there as they work wonders. I would recommend this place to anyone who either stays overnight or just comes in for a meal.More

Wow! Wow! Wow! Well what can I say!? We came for our Christmas lunch which can I say, was the best meal we've had in a long time. Absolutely made our Christmas! Staff were incredibly attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food was...very plentiful and presented in a lovely way. We will definitely be returning and would highly recommend. Thank you to all the team involved.More

Today my husband Mark treated us to a festive meal at the hotel Advocate Arms where we have been going for sometime now.at the beginning I thought that there wasant many choices of starters,so we both decided to go for a pudding,and then ordered the...turkey escollop meal.But was told straight away that they had ran out of the pigs in blankets with it which was disappointing again.Then when the meals come,i and my husband both said that there wasant much there,all potato,half a parsnip,cabbage and turkey.And we both at least expected a Yorkshire pudding and stuffing ball especially for the price.I feel that the meal was a great disappointment,and are not happy either other of us for the price chargedMore

We weren’t able to come here last year for our annual Christmas family get-together, so we were really looking forward to revisiting. We did the early dining deal because of children in the party. Everyone but I had the scotch egg, which was pronounced good...- I had the salmon mousse, unfortunately, which was extremely bland and tasteless. Then the main courses arrived, and we were all pretty speechless about the small portion sizes. We were expecting tureens of vegetables to arrive on the table because our plates were so empty (although prettily arranged), but not to be. To be fair, the desserts were satisfactory. We did express our disappointment, and were told the chef was new, but that didn’t make up for our meal being far below what we have come to expect from the Advocate.More

My friend and I came across The Advocate Arms as we were looking for somewhere located half way between us to meet up. Upon our arrival we received a warm welcome and promptly taken to our seats. Our table was beautifully dressed for Christmas which...was a nice touch. The tables were also nicely spaced out and separated from he main pub area. The ladies who looked after us during the evening were attentive but not intrusive in anyway. The food was beautifully presented and tasty and excelly value for money. I've already recommended the resturant to my mum and I'm looking forward to returning.More

We stayed in a lovely room very spacious with a lovely balcony with seating area, however we couldn’t relax because of the horrendous noise from the kitchen extraction fan above our room , it started at 5pm until 10 pm and started at 7.30 am...if we had know about this we would never have stayed, not the relaxing break we were after . The great reviews of the restaurant helped us make out choice where to stay but we were very disappointed, very over cooked salmon even though I asked for it under cooked and pink . My partner had fish and chips but the fish batter was soggy .More

I’ve not been for a while for obvious reasons, great place to stay rooms are excellent. The haddock and chips was some of the best I’ve ever eaten at a really reasonable price. Highly recommended

Hi Karen, Unfortunately we do not allow dogs inside the building. We have a decking area outside which is canine friendly. (obviously this doesn't work if you're planning to stay over)
