A first visit for us at this lovely pub. Firstly COVID measures are top notch and the first priority upon arrival Then seated at socially distanced tables. I had a Sunday lunch whilst the better half had hunters chicken. Service was friendly and pleasant and...the meals served in a more than reasonable time frame. Both were hot and so tasty, the veg cooked to perfection. We followed this up with desert and again was not disappointed. The warm chocolate brownie was to die for. Very reasonably priced and all in all a wonderful dinning experience given the current climate. Here for a week and will definitely visit again 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻More

Been before and was just the same, great staff, food and atmosphere. You can also take dogs in the bar, who also get snacks. What's not to like, give it a try.

Me and my wife visited as we were staying down the road at Sunnydale caravan park. You go into a little entrance where a member of staff takes your temperature, it was a little bit of a surprise having our temperatures took that way but...it only hurt when the thermometer 1st went in lol. The service was pretty good and food not bad but they did get my wife’s order wrong. She had steak and ale pie and wanted chips but got smash which she detests. Prices are reasonable.More

Visited here when we were on holiday in Louth cannot tell you how good the food is in this pub would 100% recommend this place to anyone. Excellent service staff were amazing especially in the situation we find ourselves at the moment. If we are...ever that way again it will be the first place on our list to visit. Must just say the portion sizes are fantastic cannot compliment it enoughMore

Really enjoyed our visit to the Axe & Cleaver. My husband, my daughter and I were on our first family holiday. The customer service was excellent. The new procedures in place following covid were efficient. The food was excellent. Really good quality food, service and...atmosphere. Good value for money also. The staff were great with my dairy free diet also!! Thank you Axe and Cleaver!More

I read a lot of positive opinions about this place. So me and my husband won't try something and we are very disappointed with the take away food that we ordered. The steaks were supposed to be medium rare and they was a well done...and it was impossible to eat it like chewing gum. The fries were slick, we don't know why. The prawns I ordered were raw and had no good cleansing. They were in breadcrumbs, which I did not know, because neither on the menu or by the phone when I called, I was not given that information. They were just a finished, cylinder-shaped product dropped into deep oil. I paid £ 35 and we didn't eat any of it, I put everything in the bin. I've never thrown food in the trash in my life I'm devastated. I do not recommend this placeMore

We stayed at Pigeon Cottage (B&B) just a short walk away from the Axe & Cleaver Pub so this was an ideal location for us to have a bit of fun during the evenings. We had pre-booked a table for the Wednesday evening (via email...before our arrival) and so we thought we would pop in the night before to have a look at the pub. We had our temperatures taken upon arrival and had to leave our name and contact number - the place was very well organised and we, as a family felt very safe. Karen and her staff were amazing and worked so hard. We decided that we had found a nice place to eat and decided to book a table for the rest of the week!! The menu had a great choice and options for everyone. They had special deals on certain days too. The food was fantastic and the portions were large! Nothing was too much trouble for Karen and her team and even though they were clearly busy every evening, serving meals, whilst abiding by all the Covid rules, they went out of their way to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. They had a good table system in place, where you can press buttons of "pay", "call" or "cancel" to get their attention. They had a great selection of gins too! Well done to you all and thank you for your hospitality, we will certainly come and find you again in the future. 👍More
