Lesley and her husband, Julian, purchased The Bustard Inn back in April 2018 and Lesley got stuck in from day one! Often seen behind the bar or serving in the restaurant, you’ll recognise her from her infectious smile and bubbly personality. Running The Bustard keeps Lesley extremely busy, but you can sometimes find her at Oakley’s Gym in Sleaford (or climbing Helvellyn!); should she get a spare moment from either of those then a coffee with the girls is always a treat.
One thing that Lesley keeps close to her heart is the importance of her regulars, she knows them all by name and has many stories about each and every one of them! In fact, the customers are her favourite thing about The Bustard Inn and she’s always on hand to make sure that your experience is wonderful.
Lesley is always influential in the special events and nights that are hosted at The Bustard Inn; her favourite so far being Valentine’s Day with CJ Hatt ans especially the singalong as the end of the night – watch this space or follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see when our next events are coming up. Of course, Lesley is a connoisseur of the menu here at The Bustard Inn but if she could recommend one dish and one dish only, it would be the new Dark Chocolate Nemesis and Yoghurt Sorbet.
The Bustard Inn is very much Lesley’s pride and joy, some squishy sofas wouldn’t go amiss but in general she loves the feel the building gives, the double height ceiling in the tower and, of course, Buster the bunny. If you pop in whilst Lesley is around please do make yourself known, say hello and learn some more about our lovely Landlady.
