Four of us went for Sunday lunch. The food very good, well presented, and just enough choice. The surroundings are beautiful and the decor has been done very tastefully. The staff are attentive without being intrusive. Will definitely go again was well worth the hours journey

Very poorly from eating a half pink undercooked sausage very poor shower pressure worst looking presented full English ever! If you fall for it and order it you will see large deep fried mushroom raw fatty sausage half of cheap salad grilled tomato and a caged hen egg. You will see.🙈

Dear Sir, We spoke at length after your visit. Your extensive list of complaints, your leaving without paying. Your false accusations to get a free nights accommodation. A true professional and intimidating complainer, well done. I'm surprised you can ever sleep at night. More

I have eaten several times in this restaurant and generally it has been a pleasant experience. However, we had a big family & friends celebration on 2nd October 2016 and we booked tables at the restaurant months and months in advance, as the date of the meal was important to us. To our upset & disgust the hall telephoned to... More

h3n2016 - not quite sure what you are trying to achieve, this is your second review of this nature within a 4 month period, it is nonrepresentational of WHH and has been reported as not being honest. We are still a small hotel and as anyone can read from the other 700 excellent reviews, our guests certainly don't need to... More

One of 28 for dinner from Washingborough Tennis Club. Excellent venue, excellent service and excellent food. Why would we go anywhere else for our annual club dinner? You should try it too!

A wonderful dining experience at the restaurant. A good range of locally sourced food cooked to perfection. A touch of class in rural Lincolnshire and the perfect setting for a romantic evening.

Excellent food, sensible length menu, first class offering, decent wide-ranging wine list, somewhat better overall than you can reasonably expect from a country-house hotel, will most certainly not dissapoint.

We had a hard time trying other restaurants because our experience here was so good and we knew no matter what we ordered it was going to be delicious! We also had high tea one afternoon and I highly recommend it.
