Advised the owners only acquired the B&B 3 weeks prior to my stay was evident. No menu for the evening meal, choice from a blackboard with limited basic meals. Placement settings for dining was basic, no condiments, cutlery just thrown on the table. Breakfast order was taken the night before, breakfast options were not provided just full English. Again place settings were basic, again no condiments. No cereal options provided only full english.

Good food

Set in a lovely village approx 20 mins from Lincoln, food is excellent, especially the English breakfast and the staff were friendly. The lodges are separate from the public house and look very smart however some work looks set to start and outside our lodge there was no kerb appeal. The lodge was roomy with a spacious bathroom and some work was needed (broken glass in window), unfortunately we did have a very worn out towel but did request a new one and was changed, disappointedly the daily room service didn't happen but otherwise happy with the accommodation. Wifi is hit and miss. Would stay again if in area.
