Great food experience, the staff were amazing as was the food. Lots of fun and laughter, we were given the warmest of welcomes. Make sure you are extra hungry when you go as the chef is definitely a “feeder”

Description
We are a tiny and quirky restaurant offering a relaxed mystery local tasting experience to twenty guests Monday to Saturday starting at 7 p.m. with canapes and winding down around 10.30 p.m. Our passion is very much in celebrating the ingredients and seasons of Lincolnshire through a humble menu of several small tasting courses in a relaxed,welcoming and definitely unpretentious atmosphere.
