Visited for Sunday Lunch. Food ok but Manager and only one bar staff covering. When it got slightly busy customer service disappeared. You can see they are trying but need to put more staff on to deliver an attentive service

Six of us arrived for Sunday lunch and were welcomed by the new manager, Norbert. He explained they had recently just started food service and apologised for the menu not being extensive as they were soon going to be doing renovations. We all had very good meals, freshly prepared. It was a very pleasant experience.

I have stayed before but this time was the best and I have to say it is due to the new management, now there is a team that is customer based and care for the pub, restaurant and hotel, the last manager seemed only interested in embarrassing his staff in front of paying guests, the new management never looked put...

just got back from spending a couple of very pleasant hours at this pub. Very friendly staff and welcome was great. Friendly staff and meal nicely cooked and presented. Good choice for a Monday night and nice atmosphere. Would definitely go again but will book the mezzae before hand.

This was my 4th visit here and service and food really good as usual! Jad the owner always has a warm welcome for everyone and serves a wide range of English and Lebanese dishes of which he makes most himself from scratch! Perfect location for East Midlands airport too being only a short drive away.. Open fires and a great... More

Firstly I whole heartedly agree with LjaneWorcs. This place is awful at an outstanding level. We dined here a couple of weeks ago. My partner ordered Steak and Chips and was told it was cooked in pepper sauce, (as it turned out we paid extra for the sauce but was not told this) . I ordered Fish and Chips. When... More

Great food and great hospitality. Jad, who runs the place came out and sat with me after cooking my meal. You can't get better personal service than that! Friendly atmosphere with a great homely feel about it. :) Thanks Jad!

I stayed here overnight which included an evening meal and breakfast for a group of 7. Atmosphere is a traditional English pub, with a team of very friendly and welcoming staff who provided great service. Evening meal was excellent as was the English breakfast. Great value for money and highly recommended.

Having read other reviews, i would suggest that The Falcon was having a very bad day when we got there. The outside of the pub is very pretty and welcoming, the beer is good and the staff lovely but that is where the positives end. We had booked an overnight stay for a trip from the airport nearby and wanted... More
