We stayed here after eating and have to say the rooms are great value for money. The staff very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for any one. The breakfast was first class. When you consider the price we think this hotel offer outstanding value for money.

This place is a little far out for me but it's well worth the drive. We've eaten here about 5 times within a month and we never get sick of it. My partner always gets their fish and chips, and it's absolute perfection,I've tried a range of their dishes such as a wrap, mackerel salad and their burgers. It's all... More

We had booked to have our wedding party here months ago. We stayed in the family room which was lovely and reasonably priced too with breakfast included. The party went without a hitch and the staff were great. The buffet by all accounts was great. Myself and my husband missed out as we were busy meeting guests. The only draw... More

Stayed here for one night before flying from East Midlands airport. Nice room, very comfortable bed. We had a couple of drinks in the bar and the beer is good. The staff were very helpful too. Off street parking is just around the corner. It was perfect for what we wanted, very good value and only ten minutes from the... More

We were directed towards this restaurant by its sister pub (The Dragon at Willington). Not in a location that we would normally go to, given the drive, but we were pleased that we did! Overall a delicious meal with good service in a lovely setting. At £40 for a sharing starter, two main meals and two drinks, we felt the... More

Well now bring on the next one, the food was fantastic, as was the cask ale selection. All the staff were fantastic, a credit to Harpurs. Cant wait to go again I... More

Had lunch with my sister and niece and we had a lovely lunch. Service was very good and the food was excellent. 2/3 were vegetarians and there was a lack of vegetarian dishes to choose from. That which we had was very good. I can highly recommend The Harpur's.

After visiting the lovely village we had a great lunch. We started with baked Camembert then onto mains. The food was very well presented and service excellent. My (adult) daughter and sister are both vegetarians and we think the main courses needs variety here, there wasn't a lot to choose from. I had pie which was lovely. We would definitely... More
