I came here with a friend after a walk for lunch. The weather was great so we decided to sit outside. The main was varied and everything was homemade. Lots of sandwiches and salads to choose from and a bar option if you wish. Would return again. You can also take a tour around the abbey.

If you like quiet roads and miles of fields for walking this is the place for you. There are 5 guided walks based from the abbey but to be fair you can go most anywhere. Good views too. We didn't go into the abbey only the tea room but the atmosphere is everything you would expect. The tea room had... More

Thank you for your comments. We make the soups here at the Abbey from vegetables grown in our gardens and other locally sourced produces. We like to offer our guests a choice of food but on this day the soup proved to be very popular. I am delighted that you enjoyed the Launde afternoon tea. We make the cake here... More

We've just been here for a wedding reception and we were impressed. Staff very friendly and helpful. Beautiful setting for a wedding and we'll definitely go back to try the lunches or afternoon tea :) Lovely area for a walk and quiet lanes (though some steep!) for cycling. Lots of wildlife about

Thank you for your feedback. We love looking after Wedding groups, it is hard work but great fun. This is why we are happy and friendly, we enjoy what we are doing.

Peaceful surroundings, birds, trees and sunshine. Afternoon tea for two about £18. Helpful staff, friendly service and pleasant sunny courtyard. The courtyard could have been cleaner though, and the long trek to the lavatories through the hotel part of the building was a bit disorientating. Strolling through the grounds took us to the old walled gardens which were lovely, maintained... More

This is a lovely minor historical house in open countryside. There is enough to interst history and archaeology buffs but this is confined to the exterior and the very intesting chapel. The tea rooms are spacious, bright and clean. There was a good choice of hot food, cakes and snacks. The drawback for me was the very long approach down... More

Thank you for your feedback. Launde Abbey is in the middle of no where but it is much easier to get to from the Oakham road entrance. You must have come in the long way from the A47 and yes, that route can be a problem if you are not use to single lane roads. Being in the middle of... More

Stopped off here just for refreshments and sat outside, then later went for lunch which was lovely though we only had sandwiches and home made soup. They cater for wedding parties. The countryside around it is stunning and peaceful great for walks.

We went for a walk in the autumn sunshine and ended up at the Abbey. The restaurant serves a small but appealing choice of snacks and main meals. The dog got offered a bowl of water while we had some homemade vegetable soup and warm bread. The staff were cheerful and helpful and the setting was lovely. Others around us... More

A first visit to Launde Abbey for an organised five day residential Summer School. 30 residents doubling to 60 with day visitors. Launde is a beautiful building set in stunning grounds: gardens, woods, fields and, once outside, you are never far from sheep! I was in the new residential Stable Block - itself a brilliant pared-back classical building. The rooms... More

The most beautiful setting , spacious bedrooms , excellent staff, fantastic meal. Lovely relaxing atmosphere, great for a weekend to get away from absolutely everything! The grounds are very well taken care of too, we hired a private room for dinner and the service and food was second to none.
