My fishing partner and me stayed at this inn to be near to Rutland Water where we were fishing the following day. As usual I checked rating on trip advisor to find suitable accomodation and was in total agreement with the reviews I had read on this inn.We were welcomed by both Linda and Harold Wood who own the Inn...

Our party of four arrived without prior booking which although would have been preferred by the proprietor was not a problem. We were made very welcome by Linda. The food was excellent quality and the beer delicious, obviously well kept. There were several diners all of whom arrived unannounced I think we were all staying at Stoke Rochford Hall !... More

My wife and I were combining business and pleasure and chose this inn as our halfway stop for the night as we drove north. Pulling into the village was like entering a different world. So quiet and peaceful. We sat in the pub for a couple of drinks before dinner, and then we're treated to a fantastic dinner. The owners... More

Stayed overnight and it was an absolute joy. Linda and Henry were very friendly, and although I am gluten free this was no problem for this fabulous chef who cooked me something to suit - delicious ! Had breakfast outside in the sunshine, cooked to order (with gluten free bread!) and accommodation was clean - comfortable - and quiet -... More

Just returned from our first two night stay, at the Cross Swords Inn. We could not fault one thing throughout our stay. Harold and Linda are very warm and welcoming, nothing is to much trouble to make your stay complete. Harold is a first class Chef, and the food offered is varied and cooked to perfection. Our room was very... More

No wonder this place has won an award for 2014 already, best village pub out of 75 in the local area! We had two lovely starters, mine was their signatory dish of Black pudding and mustard with apple marmalade and my wife's was their prawns in garlic butter. Mains was rack of lamb, perfectly cooked to how I likes it... More

My wife & I have just returned from a very pleasant few days at this Pub with Rooms. Not only was the weather very kind to us but so were Harold & Linda who own this hostelry. The menu was more than adequate for our three day stay giving a good selection on the printed menu as well as being... More

We stayed here for one night whilst in the area to celebrate my husband's birthday. Accommodation was very clean and comfortable, great attention to detail, food in the restaurant was fresh and beautifully cooked, breakfast wonderful. All our needs were catered for by the very friendly owner Harold. Highly recommended.
