Great Food

Stayed at Yew Lodge for two nights. Enjoyed the food on the first evening but wanted to try somewhere different and saw this on tripadvisor. Read the reviews of bad smells and poor management but it really isn't that bad. Were sat in the bar for about 10/15min before going to the restaurant and... read more

On a business trip in Kegworth, this little gem was recommended by the B&B. Set in a listed building that was the butcher at the turn of the last century, this eating establishment is a gem. A delightful selection of traditional English Restaurant Fare (not pub fare) the duck was done to perfection. Not overdone, with fresh vegetables - a... More

Okay, the ambiance may be a little outdated for some but for us, it adds to the charm. First came here 30 years ago and the menu never changed which is great for us. Set 4course menu is amazing for £19.99 and the extra for the t-bone was amazing given it covered my entire plate ! Staff were lovely, although... More

Went to a The Cottage last Friday evening having not been for a while, our three first choices were fully booked so we thought we'd give it another chance. When we arrived there were 5 other people in the dinning room but as we'd booked for 8.30 everyone else left pretty soon leaving us on our own. The building is... More

We visited on Friday 29th August - four adults. Food was all home cooked. Great quality, good sized portions, friendly service. Other reviewers have noted that place could benefit from a bit of refurbishment, but it was clean and comfortable. Excellent value for money too.
