Stopped here on a motorcycle ride from the coast. What a great place. Will certainly come back to try the food and have a proper look round. Particularly interesting as I was traveling with friends from Germany who happen to live near the Eder dam.

We went to dambusters on an impulse- booking the last table hours in advance, the menu was interesting and well rounded. The food was very nice, a cut above. Fresh ingredients utilised well. The decorations and ambiance was excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Visited the Dambusters pub after attending RAF Scampton. Food was good and to make things better there is a lot of RAF memorabilia.

Heard the hype about the Dambusters Inn, and it exceeds it. The large collection of memorabilia, including Medals won by the Chastise crews, and a flying suit of a Red Arrow is breathtaking. Add into this keeping the pub in as much of a period...More

Not at this pub, but if you go to their website, they recommend some B&B's close by. Most accommodation is within 3-4 miles of the pub
