My wife and I dined here on a Saturday evening. The place was extremely quiet both in the bar and the restaurant which was a bit worrying. We sat in the bar for a pre-dinner drink whilst we chose or meals from the fairly varied menu. The overall impression is that the whole place is in need of a refurbishment... More

We stopped for lunch at the Manners Arm after a visit to Belvoir Castle and we had a great roast. Portions were generous (with extra vegetables to share) and good value for money. The interior of the restaurant was very tasteful and we definitely enjoyed our visit.

Usual haunt when away with work. Quirky with individual rooms. Great beer and breakfast along with delightful setting. Staff very friendly and resident ginger cat gives it an air of being a relaxed venue. WI FI a bit patchy and no mobile reception which I like

We ate here last night & had a bit of a wait which we were warned about but meal was well worth the wait - beautiful slow roasted chicken & lovely variety of beautifully cooked vegetables, my husband had a steak which was also good. Our only mistake was not knowing about it before as staying in the Premier Inn... More

This is a hotel that has character and is "off the beaten track". It is handy if you are visiting tourist attractions nearby, or travelling on the A1 and wanting somewhere to stop that is restful. Our room was large and had everything we needed. We were given a room on the second floor which seemed a lot of stairs... More

We recently attended a wedding reception at The Manners Arms. It was a WOW on every level. 100 guests with a Marquee located in the garden. There were even menu choices (pre-ordered of course) and the service was slick and managed with absolute regimented precision. It was a joy to watch but even more of a joy to eat the... More

We had our fairly small wedding reception here, also stayed with some of our family for three nights. We chose this location as we wanted something cozy with rural charm, and are very satisfied. My wife and I were in one of the rooms on the top floor (called Violet Soul, or something like that) and had fantastic views over... More
