Less than 5 minutes’ drive from Market Rasen Racecourse, the 18th-century Advocate Arms is a 5-star restaurant with rooms, which serves local produce on its menu. The property’s location was very convenient and accessible to a lot of things. My twin room was very comfortable, although the bed was softer than I’m used to. All the staff was very friendly and helpful - I travel with medication that needs to be refrigerated and they didn’t hesitate to look after it for me. Plus they were able to accommodate my gluten and dairy allergies! A win-win all round. I will definitely stay at the Advocate again. Thanks!
Horizon Barn is located in Market Rasen and offers a garden and barbecue facilities. The accommodations is 15 mi from Grimsby. The unique experience of the accommodation. The view from the property and wildlife seen. The location was perfect for travel to local towns and attractions. Host, Irene, was easy to contact, very approachable and provided us with a "starter pack" of provisions. Everything and more you could need for cooking provided !
I don't want to be unfair about the town as it was in a great location for visiting the Wolds and we chose to stay in the Advocate, regardless of where it was really, because we liked the look and sound of it and its restaurant. It doesn't help, I'm sure, that the racing has been cancelled this year due to Covid but the high street looked really run down, with quite a few businesses closed and many of the shop fronts and parts of the street really quite dirty. There are a few newer businesses which are obviously really trying to make an effort to attract customers but overall, the town itself seemed to have little to offer- surprising as it has the race course, we expected more.
We were staying in Market Rasen as we were attending a family funeral. It’s not the prettiest of market towns but set in some lovey countryside. Visited the gardens at Goltho, which are definitely worth a visit.
It was ok, nothing special, would stay elsewhere when I go back, mattress was comfy, chef works bloody hard, breakfast hot and tasty nice for the choice all cooked fresh, lack of staff or management doesn’t help, cleaners have far too many cigarette breaks, when said to them about hot water precious night she said I ain’t a plumber I don’t know. Nice to be offered drinks or food to compensate but as said before that was no good as mum had paid for meals out for the day, after being out all day (13 hours) last thing I wanted was a drink in the noisy bar with the live band, was so noisy didn’t sleep till after midnight, Still money was taken straight away as checked in so they got my hard earned cash.
Market Rasen is a nice little town, however there are only 2 restaurants open in the evening on a Saturday night. These are a Tapas restaurant and an Indian. For simple English food go to the Nags head in Middle Rasen, just a short taxi ride away
We stayed in The Advocate Arms, the atmosphere in the hotel was great, always busy, we also ate here, omg, it was absolutely fantastic, would highly recommended eating here, you will need to book.the races is a good day out not too far away to walk to (always get a taxi to the course if you don’t want to walk). There are a number of pubs in the town within walking distance of each other.
Let's be frank about Market Rasen. It needs by passing by road, improved rail connections a single carriage is not only uncomfortable but an embarrassment.. It also needs local councillors to get their act together.. Having said that, it's situated at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds a true beauty spot if ever there was one.Everyone who says Lincolnshire is flat think again. There are a few restaurants and pubs here. In general the population are polite and friendly. Do bring cash as this is the capital of the black economy. Only one bank now!
