overpriced carvery with non existent service. Took my 91 year old grand farther in law, we were shown to our table and left to work out the procedure, food was ok but not value for money, service was nowhere to be seen only on entry and on payment of course, shame as a lovely pub in a beautiful setting. I... More

A group of us went for our end of season mini awards night and xmas meal. To say we were underwhelmed by the food is an understatement. From feedback the lamb shank was tough and nowhere near melt off the down. Majority were to British to complain but my American colleague was happy to ask for a replacement dish. I... More

I had a baked Camembert to start, it came with toasted bread and crudité and was delicious I had a chicken and ham pie for main, it was a deep dish filled... More

Chose Camenbert didn't want the veg sticks so got bit more bread it hit the spot, for mains chose gammon- done to perfection.... More

Set at the bottom of the hill near Rockingham castle on the boarder of Northants Leicestershire and Rutland in the Welland valley. Always find the food nice and the old village pub is warm and welcoming. A little nook and craney type of rooms to eat in.

Lovely decor, with a great countryside pub feel. Food was really good with great staff. Will be going back soon. Hopefully for Sunday lunch, but you need to book early.

We went for a spot of lunch after walking around Rutland water, there's a £9.50 lunch time menu for 3 courses that we took advantage of. The restaurant is a little on the cold side I toyed with putting my coat back on. The menu had two choices the same, one just with an extra word and it was confirmed... More

Four of us visited the Sondes Arms on a Wednesday evening while staying in the area and were surprised to find such a good midweek carvery for £12.50 for two courses! The menu looked great value with lots of choice but after passing the joints of meat on the way to our table we all decided to go for this.... More

Very noisy restaurant. Service very slow. No atmosphere. Food just average. Waitresses unfriendly. Cold. Not a place I'll go back to again.
