About The Bustard Inn

Set in the peaceful Lincolnshire village of South Rauceby, just a couple of miles from Sleaford, The Bustard Inn is a beautiful Grade II listed Victorian building.

It was sympathetically restored and renovated in 2007, emphasising the building’s original features, and offers a warm, friendly environment in which to enjoy fine dining in the restaurant or simply relaxing with a beer and sandwich in the bar or garden.

A family-run business, we boast three full-time chefs who creatively offer up standout dishes across lunch, evening and Sunday services, and even a snacking menu, to cater for all appetites. We source our food from local suppliers and flavours from our very own herb garden.

However you choose to spend your time with us – individually, with family, friends or as a party – our approachable front-of-house team will make you feel relaxed and very welcome.

Pricey but doesn’t stop me returning again and again. The Scallop starter is amazing but the shells for presentation are not required. Makes them difficult to navigate and cheapens what is a wonderful dish.

Really lovely place to eat and drink. Well worth a visit. A little more expensive than the norm, however it was well worth the extra expense.

Our visit was at lunchtime on Thursday, so the premises weren't busy & my scores might well have been affected depending on how busy it would be. The setting is lovely, but does the car park cater sufficiently at busy times? The staff were very attentive and friendly. I would certainly book again.
