Hubberts Bridge is a village in the borough of Boston, Lincolnshire, England. It is situated within the civil parish of Frampton, and approximately 3 miles (5 km) west from the market town of Boston.

The village name derives from the bridge crossing the South Forty-Foot Drain. Originally it was a wooden structure, and a new wooden bridge was erected about 1850, but was replaced again by a brick structure in 1888 by the County Justices for the Parts of Holland from designs of Mr John Kingston, County Surveyor.[1]

The village is served by Hubberts Bridge railway station,[2] and has a local public house, the Wheatsheaf Inn, and a community centre.[3]

At Hubberts Bridge there is an 18-hole golf course with driving range.
