The food is spot on, we took the mother in law the other day and we had a giant pizza with sides and drinks that cost £28 leaving us fed and watered enough for the afternoon.
The service is excellent, the restaurant has the open oven and kitchen so you can see how clean it is along with watching your food being cooked. In all of the time it has been open we have not been disappointed as with the lack of consistency with other restaurants we have been to recently.

HOWEVER, over the past year we have gone with friends to both and there has been an unacceptable change; the prices have risen and the food has fallen; four of us went to both places recently, the Wig i ordered pan fried red mullet for starters, it was lost in the centre of a large plate as the mullet, set on cooked peppers was two pieces of about an inch long, which for £7.50 did nothing for my appetite, it tasted OK, but it probable cost 50p to make. My wife had twice cooked soufflé, a much larger and very tasty dish, albeit a little too salty.
Our friends? the lady is gluten intolerable which is easily catered for in a local Chinese take away, the Wig, none of it, from starters to pudding there was very little available which in today's day and age is unacceptable.
And now for my main course, my wife and i ordered steak which was a medium for my wife and rare for me, my wife's was about right, mine was over done, i sent it back and was presented with a better looking piece, however, neither my wife or me could cut it despite having sharp steak knives and it was impossible to eat.
The bill, £144, the last bill for four of us at the Bottle and Glass? £180, i inspected the bill and found we were overcharged by 30 quid.
Oh dear, small portions, too expensive and poor quality produce.
The world is a greedy place and customers who can still afford to go out to eat should expect the best.

The food then; our friends ordered a red and green curry that came served in stoneware pots resting on matching holders containing candles, so looked very nice, they fully enjoyed theirs, we ordered a set meal for two. The starter was a small feast of all the starters on the menu presented with stunningly artful cut vegetables formed into roses and leaves. The main course consisted of a curry, noodles, spicy fired dish of pork and one of beef and egg fried rice. It was superb and their was probably enough for at least one more person to eat. With beer, soft drinks and the meal, the damage was about £25 per head, unbeatable for quality and price.

Worked 22hrs the other day and our boss bought a load of pizza to keep us going, me and my mate ate 4 between us (family size) American/ light / tasty / probably heart attack food, but it was fun and great food..
I dare say I won't eat any more for the near future, but it was good stuff and that is from an anti - pizza geezer - crack on, eat it have a heart attack but enjoy it while it lasts.

I don't know if I want you to know about this gem.....maybe the owners could offer discount to me because I have disclosed it? Do go elsewhere for 5* service in a 5* priced spot of course....we do.
They have log cabins / tourist lodges...not been in one but I expect all will match with the best you could expect.

Thank the lord the endless ranks of previous licencees are gone; I popped in the other day and it appears that we are on the turn for the better. The land lady (from previous success as a trouble shooter) has come from good background to make the pub a better place and serve competative food.
So what do you need to do? You cannot have your cake and eat it, there are far more foodies in Saxilby, with no place to go than you know, and this is your opportunity.
Get rid of the pool table and gambling machines, put the giant TV on for day time viewers (And NOT sport) then you will get the people who will pay for a better local place to eat.
So, the next thing is to avoid anything that comes out of your kitchen fans that smells like cheap burnt oil and place a good competative plate of food on the table for local support…..Saxilby NEEDS to get rid of drunken teenagers and you are on the right road for success; keep it up.
Torksey Lock, Lincoln, Lincolnshire LN1 2EH
My wife and I talked with our friends of going to the Wheel House at Torksey for a few years now. My wife’s parents went to the establishment in the 1970’s.
So we booked, with a six week possible wait (rather exciting) and we were looking forward to a good meal.
The restaurant was clean as a whistle, no problems there; but after that it went oh so wrong…
Those in charge of Lincoln (shire) may look at the cultural and material balance of the community, may have considered closure of the tourist center, with inadequate investors and poor local government support failing to capitalize on the obvious for the last fifty years…. then daring do to look at what York, Bath and other ancient cultural cities have being doing for endless years, AND all of a sudden, profiting on tourism and re-investment (A clue to the management then)
SO back then to the Wheel House – a beer, expensive, wine, they sell vinegar at the price you may wish to pay for a house wine (consider this; If you ask for a house wine it is expected to be the cheaper option giving the best signature for the house, thus setting the bar) and all other wines A LOT more than you would pay, even in the best eating houses in town or country – NOT good.
Locally it may be supported by staunch live near users, but in reality, when 40yrs ago it was visited by our relatives it was probably the right time.
Me, I would never return until a letter came through my door saying “New / revised / under new ownership.”
The food? Hmm! I love to cook, but even the nervous could knock up similar….if i wanted to lead a novice to red wine, that novice would never touch red wine again based on the house wine….
I would love to provide a good food report for the Wheel House, but with prawn cocktail starters, steak and chips, think platform shoes and the Bay City Rollers.

There is need to promote supermarkets that provide an excellent service and it is clear that there are a lack of reviews in the past few years despite the evidence of endless cuts to remain competitive.
Sainsbury’s then has a reputation for expense and snobbery, but who of those with that opinion have taken the time to spend money on quality products to cook a meal? Exactly (shop lifting for those with taste or live nearby with no taste) so Sainsbury’s can be expensive, but again, it’s standard comparison system identifies what you have made or lost on a weeks shop, which frequently amounts to competitive supermarkets being of less value for money AND therefore you get the discrepancy back.
I never really have time to work out what benefit we have from various honorary points we may get, so i might suggest that the store do something simple instead of passing out bits of paper at the till to tell you what you have benefited from; so such as Co-Op identify what you may get as the average stop in shopper and receive quite simply a discount or Christmas bonus for shopping there.
Has anyone all of a sudden found that life is too busy to sit down and read the bumf we get and use it to our advantage? Or has Sainsbury’s still not quite lost the elite feeling that its shoppers are middle class women who don’t need to work, using their time to sift the shop at leisure? Keep it sharp.
The food produce is excellent, service excellent, clothes and cooking departments competitive and of good quality.
