A lovely old Inn in a delightful hamlet - great little spot with charming garden. Met at entrance by a really friendly unpretentious lady called Lorraine who I later discovered was the owner! She was so good at just quietly looking after us, always smiling, nothing too much trouble for us, she set the tone for our visit. We ate... More

We visited the Brownlow Arms with a very large group of friends and family to celebrate a 21st birthday. Pre-dinner drinks were served on the small outdoor terrace , which is not fully enclosed but still has a certain privacy. Given the size of the party we had pre-ordered from a menu created by the Head Chef specifically for our... More

Used regularly for important business dinners & team gatherings. The private dining room provides a pleasant alternative to the main restaurant for groups. The food is always of the highest standard & accommodation of a high standard and good value. The staff are always pleasant & helpful, a great place. Sister pub - The Hare & Hounds at Fulbeck is...

My wife and I had a drink at the bar followed by a two course meal with a bottle of average wine.The bill was just over £86. I had a similar meal at Langan's restaurant in London for £80. There is simply no comparison with the meal in London. Overpriced I am afraid.

Our local fine restaurant so much improved by the recent re-decorations. Its a really lovely space to be in now, with those calming grey paneled walls and crisp white table cloths. Still a country inn, but elegant with it. Delightful. Service and food matches this excellence. Portions plentiful, and all most enjoyable. Apple sorbet divine!! Recommended.

We had a decent enough meal but it was quite expensive and the service simply didn't match the prices. There was no pleasant greeting, the menus were handed to us without explanation or information . The waitress removed the plates of my fellow diners before I had finished eating my starter and did not apologise when she realised. When the... More

Set in a small village a few miles from Belton House, this is the place to have dinner or Sunday lunch. There are also several very comfortable bedrooms with ensuite facilities and we have just stayed for two nights. There is a very comfortable lounge for pre-dinner drinks. Dinner on both nights was outstanding and there must be something for... More

This beautiful restaurant has recently had a refurb which has completely destroyed all the wonderful ambience and character. I ordered a gluten free meal a month early and was presented with a non gluten free Yorkshire pudding on my plate. I asked the waitress if it was in fact gluten free, she grabbed my plate, removed the Yorkshire pudding without... More

Have been here many times over the years. Used to be very good. Then head chef left to go it alone & it seemed to lose its mojo for a while. Been twice this year & back to its very best. Great ambience & food. Takes some beating in the Newark/Grantham/Lincoln area.

We ate here two weekends ago as a family group of 10 - never having been before. It's a lovely old building, beautifully decorated and the overall ambiance is definitely at the "very smart gastropub" end of the spectrum, with pricing to reflect that. We ordered a range of different dishes between us - steaks, venison, chicken and fish, with... More
