I met a friend for lunch here one Friday in June 2014. My friend had been before but I hadn't. It was a beautiful hot day so we sat outside, thankfully at a table under an umbrella. We ordered food which was very good. Very pleasant experience all in all. It became very busy during our visit so is obviously... More

The pub looks nice from outside and its woody and cosy inside but it has a poor lack of beers. I would have expected more than the typical cheap pub standard beers in a nice place such as this especially as the theme of the menu and food is Mediterranean. The menu is one that you either will love or... More

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
