Very Good Meal

We went to the restaurant as a party of six. The decor looked dated but the food was delicious, hot and the service was excellent. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good choice of food, including vegetarian. Restaurant used local produce - locally baked bread was superb.

Quite busy yet the girls working could handle all the tables from the looks of things. The owner is lovely and very inviting. The food amazing and very filling, couldn't fault anything. Can't wait to go back!

Went with a party of 16, split onto two tables then treated as two parties, chaos other table eating we are twiddling our thumbs. Enquire why, met with blank faces and later rudeness. Never again, spoilt what was meant to be lunch to meet the family from far and wide. Having said this the food was very good, hot &... More

Family of four regular visitors, but never been for Sunday lunch. Was extremely disappointed with the quality of the beef, very tough and couldn't be chewed. Three out of four if the party had the beef and left it. The waitress asked if everything was alright, the beef was mentioned. A replacement beef Sunday dinner was offered but we just... More

We booked this last minute and had not been before. On arrival the outside is typical of this old village Kegworth with it's thatched roof. On entering yes it does maybe need a little update but it still offers a friendly atmosphere, the food was excellent, we had a mix of food ranging from a mixed grill to fresh fish... More

Stayed in Kegworth for 3 days and visited this Resteraunt twice because the food and service were excellent and very reasonably priced. Highly recommended

Visited for an elderly relative's wedding anniversary, we were quite a large party so we were offered drinks in the lounge whilst waiting for people to arrive. We were given menus and the manageress kindly advised us that they did meals for children (these were not mentioned on the menus however) as we did have several young children with us.... More

Had a lovely evening at this family run restaurant and were made to feel really welcome by the owners and their son. The Environmental Health Officer arrived at the same time as we did which didn't phase the staff at all and they were awarded 5 stars once again!
