Situated within Friskney are two very different but equally beautiful public houses.

First you have The Anchor - your traditional country pub.  Welcoming publican Mick and his wife are ready to serve you with a wide range of drinks and pub grub.

The Anchor is reknowned throughout Lincolnshire for their entertainment, covering everthing from local singers to rock weekends, where 100 fund raising bikers turn up for the weekend in order to raise valuable funds for a local charity.

Then you have the Barley Mow, situated on the A52 in Friskney.

The Barley is famous for its excellent cuisine with a unique range of top quality meals.
