About the Pub

The Burghley Arms, with its four dormer windows overlooking the town centre, is traditionally regarded as the birthplace of the illustrious Elizabethan statesman William Cecil, trusted adviser to Queen Elizabeth I and the first Lord Burghley. A plaque on the front records this association:

The building ceased to be a private residence at least as far back as 1717 but was then known as the Bull and Talbot, then the Bull and Swan although, by the 19th century, it was known simply as the Bull, a sign which appears in almost every town, and which stems primarily from our forefathers' love of bull baiting. The name persisted until October 1955 when it was changed to the Burghley Arms in honour of Lord Burghley and the plaque was erected by Bourne Urban District Council. It also marked the end of a major refurbishment programme of the inn over a two-year period in which an oak-beamed bar area was added, a modern lounge and a renovated Burghley Room where an illuminated scroll was hung charting the history of the building.

The Burghley Arms is a beautiful pub situated in the town centre, it has a main bar area with a real open fire, a second bar area that is used as a pool and darts room and can be used for private functions. The pub hosts weekly live entertainment, karaoke, weekly quizzes, and sports.
