Lovely service and food!

We came here after walking out of Binley Park Inn for shocking service and we was not disappointed. The staff were so friendly and great with my kids even letting them feel special for going behind the bar to collect their fruit shoots! Such a massive difference! Then the food was absolutely lovely... read more

We were returning from Melton Mowbray and decided to have a carvery rather than go home and cook. The pub was not particularly busy. We ordered our carveries and the assistant Manager Ray was very helpful - even letting my partner try samples of some red wines before ordering her bottle. The carvery meal was excellent. The Beef and Gammon... More

I'm moving away so will not get to have another wonderful carvery. Sunday had a choice of 4 roasts plus all the veg you can stack on your plate. Arrived just after 12 and timed it just right as it got very busy.

2 of us visited for breakfast on a weekday morning. The all you can eat breakfast was lovely, hot & a good variety. The bacon & sausages were good quality & we were asked how many eggs we wanted so they could be freshly cooked for us. We both asked for tea & were given a very large pot which... More

We were disappointed that we had to wait about 15 mins for eggs and the tea pot we were given had not been cleaned properly so bits of old tea were floating around. The waitress was lovely and clearly rushed off of her feet. Its seems they need more staff to make the experience better and possible avoid problems like... More

Been a while since our last visit. Last time they had this strange idea that people would pay more for beef than the other meats. At least that idea has been binned. The peas had been under the heat lamps too long but everything else was great. Lovely pint of Doom Bar too.

Couldn't ask for any more, the carvery is what you would expect for the cost. If they increased the cost, I'm sure the food would get better but you would hardly go here for a 5* meal. The staff are friendly and local so some recognised faces in there too. Can't ask for anymore for the price..
