We went here for a family meal to start the weekend. We all ordered a burger and unfortunately couldn't eat them as they were too spicy - no mention of spice in the menu. The manager, whilst accepted that we were not happy, was not apologetic or in the least concerned.

We had to wait 3/4 hr for food but when it arrived it was very good. But we had to wait ages for our table to be cleared then they just took two of the four plates we then had to wait another five minutes for the other to be cleared. We waited to be asked if we wanted a... More

The food was very nice. The atmosphere is quiet cold as the rooms are so big. Service was very good with pleasant staff.

Can't really give a full review as we never actually got served! We sat, we waited, nobody acknowledged us so eventually we got up and left! Not very cosy, hard wooden, uncomfortable dining chairs too! This had been recommended by a guest staying at our hotel! Very poor show.

Whilst looking for a pub on my way to a B & B I spotted what looked like a well kept pub on the main A37 (Fosse Way). The pub continued the welcoming look inside, neat and tidy inside with modern furnishings. The young lady behind the bar apologised for keeping me waiting whilst she finished delivering meals elsewhere. So... More

I was concerned due... More

What a fantastic meal we had for my birthday! The slow cooked beef brisket is the best beef I and and a few others of my family have ever tasted! Just fell apart melted in the mouth was beautiful! Puddings again fantastic range on offer I had the sticky toffee pudding and it was just enough and was really lovely!... More
