So Sunday came around fast! And today we enjoyed a long awaited family meet up at The Swan Holme near Lincoln.
We were seated in the comfortable dining room with a welcoming open fire and ordered drinks at the bar. The food order was swiftly taken by a very friendly staff member who was knowledgeable about the menu including vegetarian and vegan options and we didn’t have to wait very long at all before the food arrived.
The steak and ale pie was almost family sized and came with carrots, cabbage, mashed potato and gravy. The pastry was ‘outstanding’ and there was plenty of meat inside.
I chose the roast without meat. I could have had a vege alternative but fancied Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes. The roast parsnips were very tasty and the Yorkshire pudding delicious.
For dessert there is something on the menu for everyone. We chose a creme brule and sticky toffee pudding with custard. yummy…
The Swan Holme is a very welcoming establishment in a picturesque setting. There are tables outside overlooking the lake for summer days and the bar is ‘dog friendly’; great if you’ve been out walking, but not great if you’re not a ‘dog person’. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff and we did not feel rushed. The Swan Holme is great for families with plenty of table space and extra for pushchairs and high chairs. In our opinion well worth a visit.
