Another great pub if you like real ale - and pork scratchings! Lots of tasty beer on offer here as well as the usual bar food fayre. It was very busy when we popped in, but that just means it's doing something right! A lovely atmosphere in lovely surroundings!

That means the atmosphere, the beer and the food. There was one terrific range of real ales and ciders, backed up by some excellent bottled Belgian beers (and I am told a good choice of whiskies). The lunchtime Lincolnshire sausages and mash were quality with really tasty gravy, fresh vegetables and better than average mash. One of my friends had... More

A lovely pub with a consistently great selection of well kept beers. The staff have on occasion been a little arrogant and unprofessional, I saw one neck a whole pint in one while stood behind the bar on duty, but that was a long while ago and things seem to be better recently. I visit often and will continue to... More

I won't hear a bad word about the Lincolnshire Poacher. The staff are welcoming, there are over 70 whiskies to choose from (for the other half), the house white is excellent (and not expensive) and even the food is good. We are lucky to live so near to it. If you love real ales, whiskey or wine give it a... More
