Great a meal a must hidden gem in Rutland

I notice a comment about price, we had a three course meal with wine etc for two £62.00 not overpriced. Really tasty well presented food, great location and still hidden enough to feel special.

Super surroundings. Marvellous service and absolutely amazing food to boot. This place really does live up to it's reputation. We had booked well in advance and had been told that this was the place to go. We weren't disappointed. We have family coming up in the summer and have already booked to return!

We called in for lunch on the way home. Every course was wonderful. Even the most unassuming sounding dishes were a delight. I wont bore you with detailed descriptions - just go there and be amazed but you need to book first. And it is not that expensive.

It really is a no-brainer. I've tried other pubs within striking distance of the A1 and this is almost certainly the best (there is the Crab & Lobster at Asenby following close behind). Atmosphere is great, real traditional pub feel despite being a gastropub. Service is friendly and the food is excellent. On my most recent lunchtime visit I had... More

As we are 'in the trade' I usually refrain from reviewing other restaurants but I must make an exception. Whilst the ambience and the service were all as good as you would expect, the food was absolutely delicious and very well presented. I have eaten here a few times in the past and it has been fine but I did... More

Have enjoyed eating in the restaurant previously and was so looking forward to our visit today but sadly it did not live up to expectation. Atmosphere was lacking and it generally felt overrated. Disappointing !!

My partner and I visited on the 20th February to celebrate my upcoming birthday. We've lived nearby for almost 10 years and have had this restaurant on our short list for a very long time and yes it was worth the wait! This is an excellent gastro pub, you will pay a premium but you get what you pay for.... More

My partner and I visited the restaurant on Valentine's Day and had the most amazing 5 course meal. I had goats cheese with chili jam, scallops with rhubarb, lobster with baby leeks and millionaires chocolate tart. All presented and cooked amazingly well. Only gripe was that we were left at the end of the meal and had to go searching... More

Excellent food, friendly service, log fire. Great! Fantastic value for the lunch for less too (although we did have some added extras by choice). Still fantastic.
