Once upon a time there was a drinking club at Burghley House. It was founded by The 5th Earl of Exeter in 1684 and it was called The Honourable Order of Little Bedlam. It had an eclectic bunch of members: The Baptist Earl of Gainsborough was known as Greyhound, The Hon Charles Bertie was The Stag and The Earl of Denbigh was Tyger amongst other nefarious characters. They would have drunk locally brewed ales, feasted on Burghley Estate and other local produce and created total bedlam. Things have a habit of coming round and we are delighted to invite you to dine on our local produce, sup our fine ales and obviously behave very, very well!

A place that is incredibly difficult to find, where the post code doesn’t correlate to its location.
A dimly lit place in a sunken location on the way out of Stamford.
In serious need of refurbishment with bare floors and shabby without the chic.
Cosy and snug, with creaky wooden floors and low doorways, the bull & swan is the perfect english pub. It's a bit of a foodie pub, but that's not a bad thing- they have their own organic garden at the back. We'll be back.
We had a fab stay and sadly for only one night. Large room and extra comfy bed/bedding. Lots of super extras like coffee machine and elderflower liquor, plugs near mirror for hairdryer, light bathroom and very clean.
The staff were smiley and helpful throughout the...More

We were really looking forward to our return visit to this lovely place, but exactly one year later all seems not to be as it was. The staff are cheerful and friendly, the gardens are still lovely even in November, the bedrooms are furnished in...More
