“First Class.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

The two of us dropped in for lunch and were given a very warm welcome. The menu was varied and it was difficult to choose what to eat. My wife had the sea bass which she enjoyed very much. I had the open beef Wellington and have to say it was possibly the best I've had. Will definitely be going back.

“It's a pub, it serves pub food and it does it well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

Superb value for early bird menu, from 6pm to 7pm.
The main menu is a good quality pub offer.
You get a warm welcome, pub atmosphere and good value.
Less than half mile from A17 so well worth a visit if passing from A1 towards Fens or ViceVersa.

“Early Bird Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

We booked in for the early bird special last thursday lunch , my wife and i both had a 2 course lunch for £12.50 each , there was a 3 course lunch available for £14.50 but we were far too full to manage a pudding (but the ones we saw others eating looked amazing so next time we will miss breakfast before we come) My wife has special dietary requirements and the chef/owner is always happy to make suggestions and tweak the menu for my wife's needs.The food is always home cooked and made with quality ingredients and the service attentive with out being over powering.we are looking forward to the summer to be able to use the beer garden at the rear of the pub.

“Belated family Christmas meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

We came to the pub with family members for a belated Christmas meal, it was a themed quiz night this particular evening (burns night). There was a set meal of two courses (main and desert) followed by a Scottish themed quiz. The food was excellent (as always) and everyone throughly enjoyed the entertainment of the quiz. We always come back here to eat every time we are home and are never disappointed .

We went before Xmas and expected something really good. The staff were excellent but the food i
Is not that good. Don't understand why this place is rated so highly when there are many good restaurants and pubs around Lincoln. Sorry but not that good
