Reviewed 29 July 2014

We have been several times for lunch and never been disappointed. We were staying near Louth for a few days at the beginning of July and had lunch on a Friday then Sunday.
Both times the lunch was very good, on the Friday it was much quieter than the Sunday so we had lunch in the bar area. The Sunday lunch was, as expected very good and despite it been busy there wasn't much of a delay for us! (It's worth booking) But , while we were having our lunch the queue was building up. However, people in the queue were in good spirits and they seemed like regular customers and no one seemed bothered by the wait. The carvary had a good choice of meats and vegetables. The beer garden was very busy as it was a sunny day, we will be back.

Being born and raised in Cleethorpes/Grimsby but living in Canada now, I almost forgot about this little gem. Last trip back my family wanted to go here for a family meal and so we all drove down.

The picturesque setting is just lovely, I remember cycling around here as a boy and it is all just so lovely. My wife (not English) really enjoyed the place as it seemed like such a typical English pub that she was led to believe that all pubs were like by hollywood etc. So it was a really good treat for her. The food is really good and the restaurant itself is clean and homely.

The only two complaints that I would have is first, the prices, very high. If you are looking for a bargain, don't bother going to the Splash. But overall its worth it, so don't be too put off by the cost. Second,the heat... its was just stifling when the place filled up. You couldn't really open the windows as thousands of insects will fly in (they should install some screens), and I doubt that they have air conditioning as it is probably too cool most of the time in England.

But overall, I really enjoyed the meal and thought the long drive and the high prices was well worth it

Very large comfortable ensuite room. Immaculate. Towels changed each day. Quiet when pub goers gone from garden on warm summer evening. Enjoyable food. Varied menu. 7am breakfast requests no problem. Fresh tasty and well presented. Staff service professional friendly and efficient. Not the closest to cadwell but we would stay again.

As we have only been to The Splash for the Sunday carvary I cannot comment on the food at any other time. As for the carvery it is exceptional value and the meat is very tender (usually a choice of three) and then its help yourself to veg etc. You really need to book if you want to eat in the restuarant but you can eat in the bar without booking if you go early enough. You will have to queue for the carvery at busy times but waiting time has been reduced by the introduction of numbered cards system which you will be given when shown to your table. The staff will then take your drinks order and you can sit and relax until it's your turn to collect your food. All the food is fresh, hot and of excellent quality. Any starters or sweets can be ordered seperately at your table in the normal way. We found that the conservatory area was a little nnoisy and could also be hot in the summer if you are sat in the sun. The grounds well kept with plenty of picknick type tables should you want to eat outside. It's nice to go for an after dinner stroll through Cawthorpe village and/or Watery Lane should you have eaten too much for lunch. Look out for the Gorilla when crossing the footbridge next to the ford.

Walked to splash from a local hotel for a light lunch sampled the ale which was excellent . The menu was extensive for lunch with many choices .also specials of the day were available on the chalk board . The pub looked very inviting and with the open fire looked one to visit during the winter months.looking forward to return visit to this well run establishment on our next visit to this area .
