Stayed at Tattershall Lakes Park and booked a table quite easily. Took some finding but when we did were impressed by the warm welcome, the cosy ambience and the excellent food we had. Small but friendly, and nice and quiet. Highly recommended.

This is a strange pub, the food was awful and the bar ran out of a draft beer. I would not recommend to anybody.

I have not seen dogs inside the pub, but I believe you could sit outside under a covered area with a dog when it is warm.
