Yes, it looks as though it needs a refurb, it's a bit fusty and oldish, but it has a charm about it that says 'this is the real England', take it or leave it!
I went with my mother of 82 and partner of 60 for Sunday lunch.
Despite their ages these ladies know a bit or two about food, style and service and have been to the most modern and classical establishments in the land so can't be type cast! They both took it as was, and enjoyed the afternoon with the associated banter.
First impressions were the staff, all ages and very individual, all very pleasant and helpful, they didn't put a foot wrong in our view all service, despite their odd take on uniforms!!!
The trick is being pleasant, gets great results!
The menu was quite varied for a Sunday and my mother chose chicken with a mushroom strogonoff. She normally doesn't eat much but 'scoffed' the entire and generous portion!!! She remarked that the chicken was cooked to perfection, soft and succulent, the stroganoff a savoury delight, marrying well with the chicken and vegetables.
My partner had the roast lamb and did the same!
Fish pie for me, pretty good too.
To think we all thought we were going for traditional beef!
Deserts were superb and this goes without saying but here's the thing, it was just £12 per head for three courses!!!!
We have eaten in every restaurant in Market Harborough and this is one of the best, not just for value but for heart warming food served with a smile.
