We stayed here for 1 night while going to a wedding at the intriguing Normanton Church on Rutland Water. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Excellent breakfast and very friendly staff.

I've visited this venue before but today my daughter and I were seeking breakfast - we weren't disappointed! The place was fairly quiet and we soon had our tea/coffee brought to our table. A proper cuppa! Delicious breakfast soon appeared, with three or four full rounds of toast, butter and marmalade. All first class ingredients and courteous service. Just the... More

Friday lunchtime, reasonably busy but not packed, wide spread of clientele in age range, big tables well spread out, all very pleasant. Plus modern clean loos! My companion fancied a green salad which wasn't an option on the menu but one was produced without any problem. And what finer lunch could there be on a Friday than a fish finger... More

This is a very attractive bar with good outdoor seating areas. I'm not sure how much sun you get outdoors as the yard is hemmed by tall buildings, but it is still a very nice place to go.

Thank you for your positive review. The courtyard does get very sunny in the summer, and is popular all year round especially for smokers as we have outdoor heaters. More

Called in for brunch and coffee. We live nearby and often call in there. Its a nice little place; clean, good service, nice products, good value. The meals are good, and well presented. Toilts upstairs are clean and presentable too. If in Oakham give it a try (don't get confused with Costa next door which may well be OK, I... More

The staff were great and easily available to serve the food and get us all another drink. The plates were removed at a suitable moment. I definitely will returned for further meals at this venue and stay if I needed to. 110%.

Took my mother for lunch here a few weeks ago. Food and service were both excellent and we very much enjoyed our meal. They had a large party in for a Christmas lunch but nothing seemed to phase them. Will definitely go there again can highly recommend.
