Fantastic venue for an intimate wedding with really friendly and helpful staff. They are a very efficient and the facilities were great down to the portaloos which were very pleasant! Food is good as well as the beer and the selection available. A little gem. Worth a sat or sun lunch and a pint.

We had a lovely lunch here on a Saturday. There are a few baguettes and paninis to choose from as well as larger meals. Gorgeous setting and lovely garden which unfortunately we couldn't use due to a wedding being held. My only complaint is they didn't offer smaller portions for kids so we were forced to fork out nearly £8... More

Nice helpful staff, good location, in the village of Knipton, close to Grantham and Belvoir Castle and the Vale of Belvoir. Nice scenery. The hotel offered nice, very nice food, well presented. Sticky table surfaces and floors! Otherwise very good.

Managed to book a table for four (wife, two sons and me), in the bar. Was pleasantly surprised when we came upon this splendid old place on the edge of Knipton. There was plenty of room to park and the grounds looked inviting and well maintained. Inside there was a warm welcome from the bar staff and we were quickly... More

We had a family lunch here on a sunny afternoon so we were able to eat outside on a lovely terrace. The food and service were excellent. The quiet ambience of the place added to the enjoyment of a pleasant occasion. The pub is set in idyllic countryside and is a wonderful venue for a convivial meal. The dining room... More

Stayed in this wonderful old hunting lodge in Knipton last October with my daughter. We had an amazingly relaxing time and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The inn itself was a beautiful, quaint building and we felt very at home there from the moment we walked in. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a meal that was delicious... More

Stayed for one night on business and The Manners Arms made for a nice change to the usual corporate business hotels. The sun was shining and it's the perfect garden setting to enjoy a well kept beer. Dinner was really nice and enjoyed the chateaubriand with a colleague. Breakfast was more straight forward full English, fine, but without the same... More

This venue was chosen as we were promised the conservatory due to us having such a large gathering of family and children too. Confirmed with Emma in person that this was booked. Arrived on the day to find we had been "bumped" into the main dining room due to another booking obviously being more lucrative. Food was lovely but, the... More
