Dirty fork, manky old food bits in my glass and a casserole that looked, smelled and tasted like cat food. Politely and quietly complained to the landlady so not to upset any customers, then she proceeded to shout at me infront of a bar full of people and my children! Her husband had to come out and tell her to... More

Found this lovely pub by chance when visiting the area. We had a lovely Sunday lunch with starters and a pudding (although we didn't really need pudd). Food and service excellent. If you like good old fashioned pubs with good home cooked English grub give this hidden gem a try if you are in the area. Sat outside by the... More

Fantastic location right by the river with electric hook up for motorhomes for a nominal fee. We had a really peaceful night and were only woken by the chickens outside! Heather the landlady couldn't have made us more welcome. Fairly basic pub grub menu but no complaints at all. Lovely walk along the riverbank to Tattershall village.

The Packet Inn is in a great location on the banks of the river Witham, and has a great garden at the back to enjoy the scenery in the summer. We visited in the autumn for a meal, taking advantage of the fact that motorhomes can park overnight. The staff were welcoming and friendly. There is a wide range of... More

Me and my partner visited on our away to Skegness as we stopped off in conningsby. It's a hidden treasure, if you find it you'll never forget it. All home cooked food, my partner is a chef so it's difficult finding restaurants where he approves the food but he was very impressed. Staff are extremely welcoming, the food is amazing.... More

Lovely place to go. Friendly locals and staff, instantly felt welcomed. These people went above and beyond their duty by helping us out after our campsite was flooded in the horrendous weather we experienced whilst camping at Tattershall lakes in the summer. Their generosity touched us and if you are looking for friendly service and a great evening, this is... More
