We called in here for a meal as we were flying the next morning, the service was very slow although their were only 4 people in the place ! The pizza was ok apart from the chunks of fatty meat, the garlic mushroom came in a white sauce that smelt like sick ( and it tasted like sick too )... More

This restaurant has obviously changed ownership since I last visited and not for the better, which is such a shame as it has always been a lovely place to dine for lunch or for an evening meal. The building was dark, cold, we were greeted by staff in dirty clothes, the waitress needed to wear more clothes and have a... More

Went here to see off a work colleague. There were 9 of us eating so we had pre-ordered the food. When we got there the place was cold, no heating. They took an age to get round to taking our drinks order, a few had asked for j2o which they told us they didn't have in stock 5 mins after... More

We've dined here on a few occasions being locals and always had a lovely time. The food is a little on the expensive side on the a la carte menu but the overall experience makes it well worth the money. There's nowhere better in Castle Donington to eat, unless you want a curry of course! Plus you have the luxury... More

Flying from East Midlands airport the following day so decided to stay at an hotel needed somewhere close to eat so booked this place only being a 5 min bus ride away. The on-line pictures make this place look bigger then it is although this didn't matter because it was very quiet when we visited (Friday night) only 3 tables... More

Called in here after a driving experience at Donnington Park. It was recommended by someone working at the track. We were so hungry we didn't take much in of the outside. The dining room was pleasant enough but the service was terrible. It was quiet but still took 50 minutes to turn out a gnocchi dish and the Parmigiana. My... More

A few years ago this place was very good and had a really good reputation. We decided to go back and were not impressed. Below average and way too expensive for the quality. When you read the menu it does sound nice. The food just isn't up to the standard they're charging. Very plain and very boring under seasoned and... More

Having seen some of the recent reviews was a little put off but decided to give it a go. New chef apparently and the food was sublime - pate made fresh on order and anti pasta to start - never tasted pate so good - my partner not quite so excited by his main as I was mine which was... More
