The Best Pub dining in Rutland

If your idea of a great pub dining experience is an old pub with character, log fire, friendly staff and great food then The Marquis of Exeter is it. Brian Baker shows the rest of Rutland how it should be done. We have eaten here in many occasions with local friends and never been let... read more

We have been here several times and have always been impressed by the quality of the food. However, the last two times the service was less than acceptable. The last time was Mother's Day when my children took my wife there for Sundy lunch. The food was delicous (and it unusually managed to beat my two very hungry children!) and... More

This restaurant serves first class food. We went last nigh for a meal and it was delicious. The starters were very tasty, I had the salmon, which was not the bog standard one you normally get but a very nice piece of fresh salmon quickly warmed up and having it warm brought all the taste out. It was served on... More

Having visited the beautiful village of Lyddington and the White Hart on many occasions we decided to visit the Marquis for a change. Having both worked in the Hospitality industry for many years we know the importance of customer service, clearly the barman here does not. Sarcastic, rude and full of his own importance we certainly will not be returning... More

I would heartily of recommend the Marquess of Exeter at Lyddington. I was in a party of walkers and we arrived half an hour later than expected, but we still got a very warm welcome. The meal was fantastic - as a fish eating vegetarian I found there was a very good choice, and the plaice was succulent and tasty.... More

We visited with friends a couple of weeks ago for a joint birthday celebration. We had drinks in the bar first in the large comfy sofas with a good choice of beers and wine. Then, having looked at the menus we went though to the restaurant. It's worth noting that as two out of the four of us are vegetarians... More

We had a enjoyable evening, drinks in the bar by a roaring log fire, sat on comfy sofa. Followed by a delicious pate and chutney. I had chicken wrapped in parma ham which was stuffed with goats cheese. Truly delicious and well presented .my partner especially enjoyed the pate and the sticky toffee pudding with caramel ice cream. Service was... More

My very first visit to the 'Marquess', but the other diners had eaten there previously. The decor in both the bar and dining room was extremely tasteful, and with the log fire well stoked, the ambiance was excellent. The set lunch was our intention, and our only real criticism, was that the choice was very limited, with 3 starters, 3... More

A quiet winter Tuesday lunch by a roaring log fire with good food at a very reasonable price, attentive service and a house Pinot Grigio with surprising bags of flavour! The "Lunch for Less" menu at The Marquess is a quality bargain: a generous tasty bowl of Beetroot & Horseradish soup, followed by a piquant Mussels & Chorizo stew with... More

Part of the eat for less promo we visited one weekday...two courses for 12.95p....both courses were elegantly presented and very tasty and good value for money....plus the place was busy...with what appeared to be other satisfied customers on a wet sleety day. The offer runs till march I think...get in there quick!
