A Horncastle restaurant has served up a free Christmas lunch for deserving members of the community.

Phil Cantwell, owner/chef of Horncastle’s award winning Thai Dining Room, opened his doors and invited elderly and deserving members of the community who have been nominated by local people and Horncastle News readers to enjoy a free traditional Christmas lunch on Tuesday December 16.

Although well known for producing authentic Thai cuisine in his intimate 12-seater restaurant, Phil cooked two sittings of a two course traditional turkey and all the trimmings.

Local businesses also supported the venture, designed by Phil to give something back to the community, with many East Coast Meats of Hagworthingham, Bookers of Lincoln and Tesco providing turkey, vegetable and ingredients plus extras to make this a festive special treat.
