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.

Great meal and portions not too large! Very clean throughout with pleasant, efficient service. Slightly more expensive than I usually pay, but worth the extra.

Food was fantastic; staff were lovely. There was a large party in and despite that we were served promptly and the seating arrangement had been organised so that you didn't feel over crowded by the party. There is also a reasonable price range on the menu.

We loved the Tuesday night special of the venison stew with dumplings mash - so tasty and wholesome - fantastic value at £10 but amazing value as it included a pint or glass of wine! We look forward to returning next Tuesday. Thanks to all the staff. Kathy and Paul Carter

Surroundings, service and staff were all perfect. We were a little bit disappointed with the fairly limited menu content but what we did have was very nice. We weren’t rushed, which was nice, and staff couldn’t have been more helpful. We will definitely return.

Courteous service, friendly, warming and always a pleasure to have such manners with the dinning and bar staff. On top of that excellent food that you would want to be fined upon all day 10/10
