This lovely pub is just off the A1, a perfect stop off with easy access to many areas. The menu is diverse, simple pub dishes alongside a fantastic, bespoke range of specials which make each visit different. There are some really interesting things to try such as venison, guinea fowl etc. For us the main draw here is the Sunday lunch, the portions are generous, the meat is tender and the quality is superb, the vegetables are cooked just as I like them. The value is excellent, also we have a large family, the quality for the little ones is unrivalled in this area. After all of this the cheese and biscuits are that generous you will not want anything else for the rest of the day. There is a good range of real ales which are changed regularly.

We went on the strength of a review from Hkr1980 who said the pork pieces were great(They are!).
The Staff are Really Friendly, we were greeted as soon as we got to the bar.
Food came out quickly and was very tasty.
Staff Checked if everything was ok , didnt bother us in doing so (timed very well)
They had a few cask beers to offer.
we had the pork belly pieces (starter on the main menu), Rib eye steak(main from the menu), Venison (from the specials) and would recommend all of them.

Colsterworth is 5 minutes drive from Stoke Rochford hall, just off the A1. so if you are looking for a place to top on a journey or just want somewhere good to eat this is a great choice!

The Staff are Really attentive, we were greeted as soon as we got to the bar, choice of bar or restaurant with same menu (we chose the bar), the food came promptly, was hot and very tasty.
I was really impressed with the bar staff/waitresses, we were given the choice of having starters with the main or separately, they checked we were happy with everything without being over bearing or intrusive.
The Food was Lovely and Plentiful , we had seen a review from Hrk1980 (Best starter in world !!! 19 Dec.2017) absolutely true the pork belly is delicious(thanks Hrk1980)
If you are staying at Stoke Rochford Hall this is only 5 minutes drive away.
Its a local pub and its refreshing that its not trying to be something else but the food is so much better than standard pub grub! we will pop back in again sometime.
