Welcome to the Geese and Fountain

Welcome to the Geese and Fountain, a traditional, friendly inn on the A607 between Grantham and Melton Mowbray in the village of Croxton Kerrial. We offer a wide selection of local food and drink, a quiet and welcoming atmosphere, and accommodation. There is no juke box or fruit machine, but occasional live music and a monthly folk club supplement the hum of conversation. Dogs, children, cyclists and walkers are all very welcome, and we’re listed in the 2017 edition of the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.

We are thrilled to be awarded the Vale of Belvoir CAMRA Branch ‘Leicestershire Pub of the Year’ title for 2017.

“Fantastic beer & food at a pub you must divert to if you’re travelling… near Grantham.”
Justin Mason, Beer Writer (Get Beer. Drink Beer.)

We serve a wide choice of local ales, lagers and ciders, and an extensive selection of beers in bottles and cans. We have a carefully-selected wine list comprising 100% organic wines from both Europe and the New World.

Our food starts out with top quality and distinctive local ingredients. Farms from Croxton Kerrial itself, and the neighbouring villages, provide beef, pork, hogget, venison, sausages, milk, cream, chicken, turkeys and of course geese. Cheese comes from dairies in the Vale of Belvoir, and vegetables and fruit when in season from farms in Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire. We strive to present these ingredients in dishes that will satisfy all your senses. Reservations can be made on 01476 870350.

We have seven en suite B&B rooms, each one with its own individual character. Whether you’re staying for one night as you travel past, or a whole week exploring the Vale or surrounding area, we’d love to look after you.

We hope you find the information you’re looking for on our website, but do feel free to contact us if you need something specific.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Geese and Fountain very soon.
