Sunday lunch

Second time here for Sunday lunch and equally impressed. Portions are huge!!! I didn't order a starter this time as I struggled to finish my meal last time, but our friends had the ham hock terrine and loved it. The pork belly main was divine. Staff are lovely and friendly and its a cute little... read more

Four of us dined here on a Saturday night. The menu was interesting enough but the food was only average and very expensive for what was on offer. Obviously others think the same because there was hardly anyone else dining which is strange for a Saturday evening when other local pub/restaurants are heaving! The service was friendly but inefficient and... More

This used to be a good place to eat but it seems to have lost its sparkle and special appeal. The food was ok but nothing really memorable apart from the indigestion later that night!

I was taken here as a surprise and the food was delicious. It was definitely a good surprise, the only disappointment was that my partner had telephoned to check that they catered for vegetarians when we got there the only vegetarian option as a main was mushroom arancini. However when we went to order we were told there was no... More

A typical bank holiday Monday, late rising and not sure what to do or where to go. We just wanted a light lunch, didn't want to cook but couldn't decide where. Twice previously, we had called into the Wheel at Branston on the off chance and couldn't find a table as they were full. So, let's call and see if... More

We booked a table for 5 for Sunday lunch. The pub and dining room were both very busy on arrival, but we received a warm welcome,served drinks and shown to our table. The food was excellent throughout and the portions generous. We had the roasts, but it was good to see a variety of other dishes on the imaginative menu.... More

I took a punt on here from trip advisor review and glad I did. I was hoping it was near Grantham as I was travelling from Lincoln to London, however thought I ended up in Melton Mowbray (I think it's kind of in the middle of them). This pub is in a charming little village and well worth the drive.... More

Three seniors booked a mid week lunch at this country pub, and were a little reticent at the general outside appearance and car park entrance. Hopefully this will be tidied for the summer months. Once inside, the welcome from a young lady behind the bar was warm and friendly, and the whole atmosphere of the pub was delightful. Menus were... More

Recommended by a family friend, this beautiful country pub is well-worth a visit if you're on the look out for lovely home made food and a cracking sunday roast! The pub itself is quite small (booking in advance is highly recommended) seating probably between 30-40 people. We made the occasion special, visiting for a family members birthday recently and went... More
