March 13th Four main courses all excellent, puddings very good. Great atmosphere and attentive staff. This is the third time we have been in as many months and the standard is still as good. I like the new menu which is a welcome change. Im glad its not my local as we would never be out of there!!

What a lovely place to stay!! So quaint and a real hub of the community! The husband and I stayed for three nights and would definitely stay again. The staff are polite, sooo friendly, and extremely accommodating which was really refreshing. The room was nice and modern, the only problem we had was the front door which was really tough... More

We went here for a birthday lunch and so was fortunate enough for it to be quite. We sat in the restaurant and were the only ones in there (the other diners were in the bar area) but this suited is and the waitress ensured we were not overlooked. The lunch menu was nice, I had the fish and this... More

Excellent food. Menu slightly changed, good to see it updated. Food is always excellent, service spot on and good atmosphere. Would like to see a Provence rose on the wine menu. Beer festival in August is well worth a visit. But best of all it's in our village

We had lunch here just before Christmas and just after Christmas, and both times we were totally impressed. The service is impeccable, the food outstanding and great wine. On our last visitjust after New Year i noticed that christmas pudding was off the menu, but i asked if it was possible to have this as a sweet. To my delight... More

I've dined here a number of times with friends and family and i'm always impressed with the food. The food is reasonably priced and there is a wide selection to choose from on the menu. I usually choose the pork belly which is delicious. Overall it's a nice cosy pub with yummy food, whats not to like?

Stayed over the weekend, ideal for Loughborough and the University. Staff extremely helpful, room was great, bed comfortable, shower superb. Breakfast was served by young lady, could not have been more helpful, polite and courteous. We added 2 visitors for breakfast the night before and all handled well. Breakfast was very very good. Nothing too much trouble. Would recommend.

Arrived at 2.20pm rushed our order, but all thrilled with what arrived. Fish pie took 25 mins to prepare so we had the olives starter to share. Came on a super platter. The ham and eggs was enormous, the fish was very very hot but tasty. Game casserole was wonderful, and the burger the best with all the trimmings was... More

We needed somewhere close to Nottingham, go just jut one night. On arrival we were greater by friendly staff, who checked us in and showed us to our room. They offered to assist with luggage in the way to the room, which was a surprise at this price point. We were shown around the room in great detail and warned... More
