user reviews of the Priors Oven, Spalding

The Prior's Oven was our last stop of 7 in Spalding and we'd certainly saved the best until last. This is a fabulous, small micropub run by the brewer from Austendyke Ales, who was present with his partner and dog. Along with the barman and other regulars, conversation rules, making for a really friendly atmosphere. Ales are served on gravity from the central bar. 3 were on yesterday - Tydd Steam Barn Ale, Magpie Thieving Rogue & Austendyke Barbecue 67. Ciders are in the fridge at the rear, along with a few scattered either side. They had Churchill Spalding Scrumpy & Fenland Gold, Rutland Cider Company Bushberry Cider, Grainstore Cider & Lady In Pink, Severn Farmhouse Cider & Watergull Orchards Rhubarb & Ginger Cider - a great local selection. The building itself is full of character. The bar has a fantastic vaulted ceiling and there is a much larger than anticipated lounge room upstairs, with a toilet halfway up. Best new pub I've been to a while and easily the best on this trip to Lincolnshire. A 9/10 from me.

Quirky little place centred round a small circular bar. Worth a drop in though I found the ale set up a bit of an 'amateur beer festival' - though it was amateur beer festival prices (£3 a pint).

This is possibly the most unusual pub I have ever encountered, the downstairs room is a corridor around , I think, an octagonal bar. I reckon that 20 customers would fill it; although there is an upstairs room. Having said that, the ale was good & the barman very friendly. It would seem though that there was only one toilet for use by both sexes. Overall a pub I would recommend.

The Prior's Oven is a great addition to the local real ale scene. There are usually five or six ales available; all in top condition. They are mostly from local micros and tend to feature a mix of light and dark beers. In the five times I've been there I've had ales from Austendyke, Tydd Steam, Star, J. Church, Elgoods and Hopshackle. If you aren't in the mood for ale real cider is also available.

When I've visited (at midday) there was usually a small crowd of friendly people chatting away and on the one occasion it was empty the landlord provided the conversation.

If you want keg beer, lager or meals then this isn't the pub to go for but if you want a great variety of top quality real ale in friendly surroundings this is the pub to go to in Spalding.
