A fairly short menu of 4 starters and 4 mains but the brasserie menu is also available with choices of either menu. Well priced wine menu. Three courses, large portions and bottle... More

Upon entering the hall the décor was tastefully done and within keeping, the hotel was lovely and clean, our room was stunning, extremely comfortable containing a large 4 poster bed with an amazing bath. When we walked into the hotel we were met by the most... More

When you live in Washingborough, or indeed anywhere within at least 10 miles, why would you ever go anywhere else? The quality of the food, service and surroundings coupled with very friendly staff always make a visit very special. Well done Lucy, Ed, Mark and all the staff and long may this continue.

Could not get booked for Sunday lunch so went a la carte in the evening. The food was excellent and tasty. Great selection of gins as well wine selection. The hotel knew it was a birthday treat and made up a chic plate for her.

Four of us went for Sunday lunch. The food very good, well presented, and just enough choice. The surroundings are beautiful and the decor has been done very tastefully. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. Will definitely go again was well worth the hours journey
