Grateful Thanks to Our Wonderful Sponsors.

Our sponsors, like us, love the landmarks, the history and the future of this part of Lincolnshire. Selected to give you a wide range of tastes and services we encourage you to visit their pages by clicking the headers. Consider using any of their services - they all know about us and our aims and.... you will be supporting your local community as well. Apart from our local sponsors we have some specialist companies who offer our members discounts and special offers. We also have fundraising links set up, one of the best is EasyFundraising, just by shopping online through them, both as an individual or through your work, can raise valuable funds that we can put to good use throughout our little part of Lincolnshire. Log in, sign up and search for Boston Community Runners as your cause.

All food is sourced locally whether it be our tender fillet steaks or our fresh haddock! We also have a wide range of cask ales, beers, wines & spirits to choose from.

In the kitchen the food is cooked to order by the two creative chefs. Each dish being cooked to a high standard. We currently offer two menus, one being our lunch time menu which offers lots of tasty pub meals cooked with all the passion our chefs possess. 

Our evening menu still offers the same pub classics as well as some more complex dishes.

Our menus are tweaked weekly, to account for seasonal variations and to keep the menu interesting to our customers some of whom dine here two or three times a week.

The Mermaid Inn also features a beer garden with a seated patio area, overlooking the river. There is a large childrens' play area.

Using easyfundraising is just about the simplest way to raise money for your good cause. If you’re wondering what it’s all about, read on…

How does easyfundraising work?

We work with over 2000 retailers who have all agreed to pass a donation to your cause when you shop with them. The donation is usually a percentage of how much you spend with them but it can also be a set amount, such as £30 for a new car insurance policy from Aviva.

Our retailers include Amazon, M&S, Boden, John Lewis, Argos and 2000 other well known names. To raise money, instead of going directly to the retailer website, log into easyfundraising first and click on the retailer you want to shop with. You’ll then be taken to the retailer’s website where you shop as you would normally. But because you visited easyfundraising first, your cause gets a donation. It really is that simple. It's free to register and use, no catch, and you'll be helping your community runners out.

The Lincolnshire Runner is an independent family business and has been ‘running’ since 1988!

Whether you need training shoes, racing shoes, track and field spikes, trail shoes, fell shoes, & Cross Country spikes, we stock the lot! Plus a large range of clothing, GPS watches, heartrate monitors, nutrition, backpacks, and more. Just give us a ring and tell us what you’re looking for and we will give you all the help you need.
