Sadly all the previous reviews are now well out of date. It's now a bit of a dump. In a great position on the River Witham, but the inside is now very shabby and unloved. Two sides to the pub served by a central bar. Tatty carpet and wires sticking out all over the place. Ladies toilets not fit to be used according to Ms CAMRA. There's a beer yard at the back, but this is also unkempt. Only two beers available and these were both from "Mansfield" brewery which no longer exists, so brewed in a Marston's beer factory. My pint was just about OK. Won't be coming here again, it's a mess.

This is a detached Marstons' pub and eatery, over looking the River Witham, with a beer garden at the back - and full of character. It is Tudor in origin, with what look like 19th century alterations. It is in stone, with white plasted front. The upper storey has a couple of large sash windows flanking a bow window, while on the ground floor there is a central entrance flanked by Tudor-style stone windows. I love the roof, hipped on side and gabled the other!

The interior is open plan in a big L-shape, with the ceiling supported by columns and beams. It is in stone, red and cream, with a white beam ceiling and a carpet floor. To the right there is a pool table and TVs, with sport on. To the left is the dining area, where we sat. We didn't eat so can't comment on that. Behind a stone internal window feature is a snug area. There are old photos and prints of Lincoln on the walls and the background music was general and at a decent level. The service was friendly and there were a few people in eating, as well as a few locals.

Beer; the usual tap stuff with Jennings Queen Bee, Banks's Lions Roar, Brakspear Oxford Gold, Mansfield Bitter and Pedigree Old Father Time on handpull.

We popped in on a Saturday night and couldn't get to the bar, so came back the following day when it was empty. I really enjoyed my stop here and would definitely go back. Could saty here for several!
