Stayed at The Royal Horse Shoes for one night on 7th July. It’s a.ten minute drive from Melton Mowbray. This is a great little place that is popular with the locals not only for the great beers but the top quality food on offer, it was friendly and had a good atmosphere. The night of our stay, Monday, was ‘Pie... More

Stayed here as no other hotels in the vicinity. Accommodation is in a separate block behind the pubs, an annexe of just 4 fairly small rooms. Really nice, warm comfortable rooms, bed was really good and nice hot shower. Excellent pub food and drink. Breakfast was a full English cooked by the owner, Mick. Would definitely stay here again, without... More

The first time we had been. Disapointed, bar meal standard not restraunt standard. Boring menu very unimaginative. Staff were slow. Meal average and too big. Needs more thought. Shame, the location is in the beautiful vale of Belvoir. Steph

We stayed in the hotel saturday 15th june. The lady that checked us in seemed nice, room 1 was nicely decorated although small, when we walked in the door i fell over a chair but there was nowhere else to put it. We went into the pub at night which stayed open quite late, the same woman was there from... More

we stayed here on 4th June a warm welcome awaits, the hotel has only four rooms but they are decorated to a high standard. The meal was 5* and the service was the same. Breakfast was good too, well worth the visit highly recommended.

My wife and I lunched there yesterday. Smily welcome from the landlady who made time to chat with all the diners in the bar area as she served - very warm personality. We ordered one starter - chicken liver pate - which came with two sets of plates and cutlery as I think the lady recognised that it would be... More

I stayed here on business this week and am kicking myself that I have not discovered it before now. Rooms are small but comfortabl, and very nicely done out. Staff were friendly and welcoming, and food excellent. Will definitely stay here in future over local hotels.

Stayed here a few times as our Head Office is just down the road. Clean rooms, great showers, terrific hospitality and the food is absolutely brilliant. Top Notch. I have been made to feel very welcome here
