The Bustard Inn
The Bustard Inn is said to be the only pub with this name in the UK – great bustards are birds that became extinct in the UK in 1832. The food is worthy of such a unique moniker too. The cooking – especially that shown in the evening a la carte menu, offers a magnificent range of flavour combinations, often using local ingredients, such as venison with butternut squash, potato terrine, beetroot, grape and kale; and Gelston lamb with cherry, sausage, pearl barley and onion.
There’s a setting to match the food. The Bustard Inn has recently been restored to highlight the old stone walls and original timbers. The decor is light and fresh, reflecting the colours in the stone with tapestries and bespoke wall art, tapestry chairs, handmade solid wood tables and doors, wrought iron work, porcelain tiled floors, subtle lighting and underfloor heating throughout; this creates an elegant but informal and relaxing environment.
The Bustard is a Lincolnshire jewel – an elegant country pub with a traditional feel and a talented team.
