My wife & I (aptly) stumbled across Serendipity & are so happy we did. The building, staff & food are all warmly unique & characterful. We spent a thoroughly pleasant evening in the old headmaster's study, admiring a tree-filled view through the regency gothic bay...More

We loved the taster menu! Got more courses than advertised and got to try plenty new foods. Incredible! Atmosphere is nice and laid back too. Will definitely continue to return. Best taster menu prices I’ve seen nearby too!

Great food experience, the staff were amazing as was the food. Lots of fun and laughter, we were given the warmest of welcomes. Make sure you are extra hungry when you go as the chef is definitely a “feeder”

We are a tiny and quirky restaurant offering a relaxed mystery local tasting experience to twenty guests Monday to Saturday starting at 7 p.m. with canapes and winding down around 10.30 p.m. Our passion is very much in celebrating the ingredients and seasons of Lincolnshire through a humble menu of several small tasting courses in a relaxed,welcoming and definitely unpretentious atmosphere.
