Four of us lunched here again recently, and once again the meals were faultless. The ladies have learned now that when we are offered the 'smaller' meal it is still very substantial with plenty of their chosen meat and a lovely selection of vegetables. Service is friendly, speedy and helpful. We are part of The Sunday Lunch Bunch and as... More

Had a lovely lunch in this pub. Fish pie really good and my daughters steak was just fantastic. Cooked to perfection and had a wonderful flavour and texture. They were good with small children and the kids menu included starters for children which is quite unusual and they had a risotto on the menu as well as the usual burgers... More

Had a very good lunch next to an enormous log fire, we had a mixed platter of meats that was for one but we had it to share. They have there own smoke house and chicken, which makes the meal very special.

The pub has a traditional air with beams and a welcoming open fire. On a Monday night there is only the bar menu and a specials board. There was however a good choice of dishes including fish, meat and vegetarian. Service was helpful and efficient. Prices were reasonable and meals and drinks were good value for money. Food was served... More

We stayed between Christmas and New year, on a cold winter night. A warm welcome, a great cosy pub with first rate food and a brilliant breakfast.

A lovely little gastro pub set in the little village of Wing, near to Rutland water. We've been here twice now and both times the food was delicious and great value for money. The staff are friendly and provide good service. We are particularly impressed with the effort that has gone into sourcing local produce. Also special mention goes to... More

We were roaming around Rutland last week and visited this venue for lunch. The building looks rather odd at first glance as it runs back from the road rather than parallel to it. We parked in the car park at the rear and were impessed to see fruit cages along one and a range of rather elegant chickens on the... More

It was a good decision, the food was very good and quite a good selection at a very good price. The service was good and the staff very pleasant.
