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

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

Melbourne is a pretty little market town very conveniently situated only a few minutes drive from East Midlands Airport. Harpur's is in the centre of the town and has free parking which is handy. It is a pub with accommodation overhead. Everything was clean and comfortable, a very comfy bed and lovely fresh bed linen. The staff were friendly and... More

It does what it does extremely well and has a good mix of local regulars and out of town visitors. Have just had a Sunday lunch with a group of... More
