What a fantastic menu. Simple, small but very impressive. The food ordered was stunning. Fish and chips and a burger. All clearly home made, fresh prepared and presentation excellent. Worth every penny and will be back. Hosts were professional, talkative and excellent landlady and staff. Would recommend this place any time. Well done.

We were a group of 9 and had such an amazing meal here. From the initial contact to book the table through to the meal itself the whole process was really efficient. We were really well looked after and the food was fantastic both in presentation and flavour. Staff were brilliant, welcoming and friendly, could not fault anything about our experience.

We have eaten here 3 times before and this 4th visit did not disappoint in any way, staff were attentive, a very good menu and an excellent wine list as well. Not a cheap meal but it ticked all the box’s.

Dropped in out of the blue for a quick bite to eat before family event in Sleaford. Very welcoming, great fish finger sandwich and sweet potato fries delivered promptly with a smile. Exactly what we needed. Great choices
