Once again, on a visit to my aunt in Horncastle we decided to have lunch at the West Ashby Arms. I feel that this place is not as busy as it ought to be. We have been twice now on visits from Yorkshire. The food is well done, generous and the service is excellent. I hope more local people discover... More

We have been going to the West Ashby Arms now for some months as it is one of our favourite restaurants in the area. The Friday Fish & Chips has to be seen to be believed - Incredible value for money as well as beautiful fresh fish . I would also recommend the Spicy Enchilladas .

We pre booked for a group of eight on a Saturday night, neither the pub or restaurant were busy. The atmosphere wasn't great, no warm welcome. The staff were more interested in talking to the handful of locals in there. We found our table and sat down but had to go and ask at the bar for the menus. Everything... More

This was our first visit to the West Ashby Arms but it will definitely not be our last.The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We chose from the very reasonably priced lunch time menu and all our food was nicely presented and well cooked. The sweets were great. My husband really enjoyed his pint of Timothy Taylor's beer - the... More

Really friendly, welcoming staff, this is country pub is very highly recommended. Our Sunday lunch was fantastic, with loads of nice veggies to go with it and fab desserts which (I think?) are all home made. The kids' roasts were a really good size too.

We have been considering trying this for lunch when we visit our elderly aunt in Horncastle. Today we did and we are pleased. The pork loin roast was delicious. The Yorkshire pudding was very good, authentic and home made. (I'm from Yorkshire) The veg was well done and there was no shortage of gravy. Excellent welcome, great service and comfortable... More

We called in for lunch after seeing the signs outside when we drove past. We ordered from the lunch menu a main meal with tea or coffee for £6.99 we wondered how the meal would be at this low price, however we couldn't fault anything both our meals were lovely and the coffee was just how I like it. We... More

My husband and I sought out this pub for lunch as it is dog friendly. We were greeted by the landlord as soon as we stepped inside the bar and made very welcome. With us having our dog with us we sat in an area off the main bar which was delightful, spotlessly clean with comfortable chairs and an open... More
