Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the best Restaurant in Lincolnshire - I kid you not! Finding it is a nightmare as the postcode retakes you into the village - but it’s on the Slip road off the A17. Anyway we have been here twice in 3 weeks and...living in Derby - travelling to Sleaford to eat here shows how good it is! The food is SO tasty, the combinations for example of beetroot/Goats cheese and walnut for example is stunning! My wife has had the lamb both times (it’s so good) I had the Rissotto (1st time) the Pasta the second time - bit were cooked to perfection! If you are anywhere near Sleaford and looking for somewhere to eat, don’t faff around go here! It is stunning ! Sorry I don’t have example of all my dishes but here’s a fewMore

What a restaurant and bar. The atmosphere is outstanding and the staff go that extra mile to make you and your family feel relaxed and able to enjoy the experience. The food was outstandingly good and who ever operates the kitchen should be very proud...of the delicious meals they produce. The bar area is relaxed with a country feel incorporated into a modern design, very well done. thank you to all that hard working smiling staff. Over all, outstanding and We'll be back soon.More

Absolutely lovely Sunday lunch, the lamb melted in my mouth and the chocolate sponge with latte ice cream for dessert was delicious!

Great Sunday Lunch with Mrs B's family, 7 of us. A varied Set Menu was the choice. Mrs B started with the Tomato Soup & I had the Lincolnshire Sausage Scotch Egg, & we both had Lamb Roast for mains. Various different meals were ordered...by the rest of the family including the 2 Vegetarians. Overall we had a great meal with all the food thoroughly enjoyed. The service was extra Special. Highly Recommended.More

Amazing food and service. Can't recommend this place enough, saw the sign and needed a bit to eat, and so glad we did. Had a lovely welcome, you could tell everything was fresh and made from scratch, hoping we pass on our way home so...can visit again. There was a group behind us have the 3 coarse meal deal, the guy loved the mushroom starter so much he changed his dessert to the mushroom starter. Thank you for an amazing meal and welcome, was the perfect start to our few days away.More

Another fantastic meal this week. I never get better vegetarian meals than the ones here, the flavours are always fantastic. The three meat eaters with me were also really impressed with their food (again). The menu is always interesting, with creative flavour combinations that really...work. Love the commitment to local ingredients too. Also - the staff are fab. Bar and wait staff always really welcoming and great at their jobs. We’re lucky to have this place so near Sleaford.More

We’ve been meaning to come here for a while now but we’ve only just gotten round to it, I’m so glad we did. The food was absolutely beautiful - really tasty. Plenty of food to choose from and I think, reasonably priced. The staff were...really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Will definitely be back again soon.More

Sunday lunch was absolutely fabulous and certainly lived up to expectations. We visited 2 weeks previously to sample the award winning dinner (which was superb) so had to visit to sample Sunday lunch. We enjoyed fabulous food and great service on both occasions.

Visited with friends and was immediately impressed with the decor. Unfortunately it was not warm inside and I found it uncomfortable. The staff were pleasant and made us welcome. Drinks were served in the lounge area whilst our food was being prepared. The menu choices...were reasonable and is wasn’t too long before we were escorted to the table. There was next to no heating and we were all cold. The meals arrived and most of us were disappointed with the portions, especially the lack of vegetables on the plate. The food was tasty and presented well but for the cost very meagre. We had a sticky toffee pudding to follow which again disappointed. The sponge pudding was dry and tasted like ginger cake. The toffee element was all at the bottom of the dish with a tiny bit of ice cream on top, very unimpressive. This being our first time in this restaurant we will not be returning.More
