Chequers in Woolsthorpe gets Good Pub Guide's dining award for Lincolnshire
Sixty-one Lincolnshire hostleries are mentioned in the 2014 Good Pub Guide.
Nine have been singled out for special mention - and another 52 are listed as 'worth a visit.'
Many hold their place having been included in the drinkers' 'Bible' for years.
But food has played a major role in the choices and recommendations this year, with more than half those named already holding recognised food awards.

And the Lincolnshire Dining Pub 2014 is the Chequers in Woolsthorpe, in the Vale of Belvoir near Grantham.
It is described as a former coaching inn with castle views.
The other eight highlighted are:
"The Ship at Barnoldby le Beck is a refined dining pub with Victorian and Edwardian bric-a-brac, the Chequers in Gedney Dyke is a stylish dining pub and new to us this year.
"The Brownlow Armsin Hough-on-the-Hill has smashing food in civilised surroundings and the Inn on the Green at Ingham is nicely modernised with a chatty atmosphere.
"And the Wheatsheaf at Dry Doddington is very well run by hands-on licensees and the Butcher & Beast in Heighington has six real ales, a cheerful atmosphere and hard-working landlord and landlady.
"The Queens Head in Kirkby la Thorpe is much loved by our readers. Also listed is the Welby Arms at Allington."
