I stayed here for one night on business. The room was comfortable and clean. The pub area had a really nice atmosphere in the evening and breakfast was delicious! I would definitely recommend this B&B.

I have eaten here many times and it is consistently superb! The menu is changed frequently which means there is always the choice of a fresh and exciting dish. Service has always been impeccable. An absolute star of a find in this small village. 10/10

This has to be one of the most consistent pub restaurants in the area. As a result we use it frequently and visited this week for my birthday. We another lovely meal, everything was served hot and was delicious. It offers something a bit different if you want it but also traditional sandwiches and a burger for the less adventurous....

I could evaluate our stay in one sentence as per the title of this review however it wouldn't make for interesting reading! Arrived Friday afternoon after a very long tedious drive stuck in endless road works on the M1 and an exhilarating afternoon at Donington Race Circuit. The village is picturesque and as soon as you catch sight of the... More

Absolutely fantastic food, superb quality, excellently prepared and presented. Eating here is a real treat and the menu has great variety - all locally sourced where possible. As you would expect it's not cheap, but it's great value for money. Last but not least the staff have a lovely manner and show genuine, courteous and friendly attention.

We stayed here for 1 night and arrived at a very busy time on the Friday night, however the staff were great and the check in was good. They even managed to find a table for us for dinner and we were very glad as the food was excellent. Great atmosphere in a cosy pub. The rooms are also excellent,... More

We booked two nights here to attend our daughters graduation at Loughboro Uni on a recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. We arrived at 8:00pm and the pub was very busy but we were checked in straight away. The room was beautifully decorated and very clean. Our room was the standard double with disabled access. We had... More

I had a business review with our CS team in East Midlands and chose to stay local to our offices. The team had advised they would meet me for dinner here and I found out they also had accommodation. The food was first class in their restaurant, service was the best I have received in hotels in this area, very... More

My husband and I go here regularly and have always received excellent food and service. Although the menu is not extensive it is very reasonably priced. We have never been disappointed. It is always a good idea to book as they cater for weddings and the restaurant isn't huge.

Stayed at the Royal Oak prior to early morning flight from East Midlands. The room was perfect with a large comfortable bed and lots of space. After a lovely meal in the restaurant we returned to our room to find the fridge full with continental breakfast ready for our early departure. The tray included Parma ham cheese cereals and beautiful... More
