This is a great little pub - we visited because they have a really good vegan menu (rare in smaller places !) The service is excellent, the waiting staff, really friendly and happy to accommodate ANY requests. The food is excellent, and I had the...best vegan lasagne that I've had outside of my own house My fellow diners had the roast beef Sunday lunch which was apparently very good indeed, and the Moving Mountains burger which was actually a double patty burger and again very good. Would highly recommend and we will certainly be visiting here again Highly recommended and we will be back.More

We had dinner here last week. The menu is quite basic (fast food) but tasty none the less and served with a smile and just what we wanted. We had our dog with us and had the option of sitting outside or in the sports...bar which is why we did.More

Don't be misled by the old menu on the website. The Fortescue at Billingborough has a very good selection of vegetarian and vegan meals. It certainly was a lovely birthday treat to have a choice! We had starter, main, and a pudding (because we could),...and all was very tasty.More
