Enveloped in a lush corner of the Lincolnshire countryside, near to the beautiful Swanholme Lakes, The Swan Holme offers traditional British pub cuisine in a charming cottage-style inn. With an al fresco garden for summer dining, a cosy hearth-fire, and plush, comfortable furniture, The Swan Holme is a luxurious country retreat.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Swan Holme menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Swan Holme ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Swan Holme is just a 15-minute walk from Hykeham Train Station, or 10 minutes into central Lincoln.

    Disappointing meal, upon arrival we were told that they had ran out of lamb and that there was only 3 serving of beef left. This was surprising as it was 1oclock. The service was ok and staff pleasant. Food was tasty but for £10.95 I would have liked more than 2 slices of meat, more than 1 Yorkshire pudding, carrots to be peeled at least and to have had warm plates. By the time all the food came out majority of our food was cold. No gravy was given as an extra but clearly states on the menu get a pot of gravy, when asked if we could have extra gravy the waitress happily said yes but gravy did not arrive. When asked if meal was ok I gave my feedback but no one was interested in resolving the issue so I paid and left. Shame! Lovely setting, I've just moved to Lincoln but I definitely won't be back for food.

    The dining experience wasn't up to your usual standard. I ordered a sirloin steak "medium" and it was "rare ".

    Brilliant place.
    Staff extremely friendly, and were very obviously happy to be there and very happy to give the best service possible.

    Food was simple awesome, including probably the finest Cheesecake anywhere, it was the best by far that I'd had in 17 years.

    I would highly recommend this retaurant

    Enjoyed the visit as usual but this time I had 2 vegetarians with me and they weren't too impressed with the limited choice of main course. Desserts good. The attention given to us by the serving staff was excellent and this should be related to them by the management. Young people don't get enough credit these days.

    This the first time I had returned for five months.
    Since then the food has greatly improved in presentation and flavours.
    I had the Prawn and lobster stater, this was a good portion size and tasted excellent. My friends had the pate and crorrettes. Both dishes equally visual appealing and full of flavour.
    All three dishes also had excellent textures of all food and everything was fresh and crisp.
    Two of us had the fish and chips, excellent. Crisps foully and crispy, mushy peas piping hot and yummy. Fish perfect, white flesh perfectly cooked and crispy batter. Tartare sauce was equally lovely.
    One of our number had the Ham Hock, he words such as gorgeous and wow! These wording from him is very impressive. Our fourth and final member had the hunters chicken. Again a very enjoyable meal.
    All in all a very enjoyable experience.
    Staff were fantastic!!

    Fantastic food and service. Fantastic menu to choose from although some items on the menu were unavailable, however the duty manager was fantastic at accommodating alternatives . Bonus is we also ended up taking part in the quiz night which was great fun. Enjoyed it so much we have booked again for the 9th August.
