"Nice country pub with good food"
We stayed as a party of 4 in 2 separate twin rooms, which were very clean and tidy just a little small. However the Pub is great, good beer and super home cooked food of a very high standard. The worst part was that as we had to leave before 7.30 am we only had a basic continental breakfast which was a shame as am sure a prober one would have been good. Read less

Response from The Cross Swords Inn:
Thank you for taking your time to give a review, it was a shame you didn't book the breakfast before hand as I am sure I could have arranged something better than a basic continental, we do have that provision on our bookings form.
Linda and I are pleased you enjoyed the rest of your stay.
Kind regards

"Ideal overnight stopping place"
We stayed twice, once on the way to Norfolk from Wales and once on the way back. The Pub is lovely - very traditional and both the staff and the other guests were very friendly. The evening meal on both occasions was very good and a good choice for breakfast. Read less
Likes:
We were made very welcome. The deco was good and both the room and the public areas in the pub were well maintained
Dislikes:
The room we had was dark with little natural light - with hindsight we should have asked if another room was available for our return
Response from The Cross Swords Inn:
Hi Stephanie, what a shame you didn't let us know on your first visit, I am sure we could have changed this for you! Anyway I am pleased you enjoyed your overall stay, and our food.

Kind regards

Award winning Country Inn! Country Inn of the year (Camra 2014) AA Dinner Award 2014, Certificate of Excellence 2014 (Trip Advisor).

This impressive stone building was built in the early to mid 1800’s where the landlady would provide the ale and supper, while the landlord would shoe horses and serve as the blacksmith around the rear of the establishment which now is the Accommodation & Courtyard. .

This country inn has had its fair share of landlords in the past - your current hosts Francis & Linda Wood, who have owned the Cross Swords Inn since 1991, are the latest in a long line of hospitable landlords, stretching back to Edward Herring in the 1800's.
With a fine selection of good food ranging from A’la carte to country inn food. To complement the food, a good selection of ales, spirits and wines, are available.

Our accommodation is settled in the Courtyard come car park, within the grounds of the Inn, and comprise of three, well-designed, comfortable, en-suite, twin-bed roomed cottages. This makes the Cross Swords Inn an ideal place meet ,eat and to stay.

The Cross Swords Inn is located in the historical village of Skillington, which dates back to the Domesday Book. The whole area is full of interesting features of Stately Homes, Burghley House, Grimsthorpe Castle, & Belvoir Castle to name but a few. If you are a golf enthusiast, or just like to walk, the setting is perfect, for a relaxed stay in a forgotten part of Lincolnshire, just off the Viking Way.

For the more energetic, just 5 minutess from The Cross Swords Inn, is Buckminster Gliding Club, where you can buy trial flights.
Please note we do not have the facilities to accept babies and children under 10 years of age and we do not accept pets.
