Along with friends, we needed to have lunch whilst passing through Loughborough. First impressions were not good. We found oursleves in a rather well worn pub. However, our server popped over, drinks were ordered and we chose our mains. Wow, two of us had one of the Specials - BBQ Belly Pork that was on a bed of olives, peppers... More

Went for 4 meals just before the service closed at 7pm. Ordered the sirloin steak special with peppercorn sauce....wow...trimmed steak, served with sauted potatoes with garlic, ample portion for £10 the other meals were all good. Great value, home baked interesting combinations. Only disappointment is its too far away to go back again next week.

We concluded an evening out with drinks here last week and enjoyed the selection of wine and cocktails. Was nice too as there was a live band on the Friday evening - only slight thing is they can sometimes be a bit slow serving but as a simple order this time not a problem.

I'm a fan of all the Orange Tree pubs in the area but this one is particularly enjoyable. A fanatic range of drinks, a great atmosphere, comfortable decor and a lovely beer garden. Prices are a little higher than some other places but it's still affordable.

Over the last few Years I have visited the Orange Tree perhaps 5 times for lunch usually with a group of friends, unfortunately we all agreed on our last recent visit that although the menu appears to be inviting the actual meals on arrival have diminished in size, quality only just about the same bordering ok to good and certainly...

I didn't really think it would be a great standard, but never knew why. However, recently I visited with a friend for dinner and it was brilliant! We went during... More
