Spalding is a market town in south Lincolnshire equidistant between Peterborough and Boston, with a growing population of around 30,000. The Lincolnshire Poacher occupies a pleasant location parallel to the River Welland, within walking distance of the retail thoroughfare which hosts a number of major national retailers. Prezzo is particularly close by.


The Lincolnshire Poacher is predominantly an attractive two storey, brick-built property with a pitched slate roof.

Characterful internal trade areas are accessed either from Double Street or Herring Lane. An attractive, traditional bar area is supplemented by a feature open fireplace.  A further wooden servery caters to a bar area with a restaurant beyond this. Male & female WCs are situated on the ground floor.  

On the first floor, there is a commercial kitchen with dumb waiter and substantial private accommodation which is arranged over two floors and comprises eight bedrooms (one en-suite), domestic kitchen and three shower rooms. Due to the size of the accommodation it could be retained for staff/manager, or converted to letting rooms, subject to the necessary consents.
