“Great place to eat, drink and sleep”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

I've been coming to the Chinese restaurant attached to this pub for years. Always has an eclectic crowd, plenty of atmosphere and all the feel of the "local" that it is for many nearby villages. Food as usual is to the high standard I've come to expect and for the first time this evening I have decided to stay. Rooms are in an adjoining house - its a very reasonably priced B8B that doesn't suffer from any noise from the pub it is associated with. My room (4) is a double that's appears to be recently decorated and contemporary in style. The bed is ultra comfy as I nearly dropped off taking a crafty bit of shut eye before dinner. The en suite is a shower, sink and toilet. The view from the window isn't anything to write home about as it overlooks the roof and vents but its the inside that counts and I can't complain. I'd highly recommend this if you're passing. There's a small beer garden at the back and plenty of parking.

“Best Chinese in Leicestershire”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Very warm welcome in the pub side with open fires and subtle lighting. Can get busy with youngsters at the weekend, but never rowdy. Chinese restaurant serves excellent food and is good value for money. Even better now that you can add your bar drinks to resturant (which is always handy!). Overall, a nice country pub to spend an evening.

“Sunday Lunch for the Hungry Diner”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is a pub / restaurant and serves Chinese food in the evenings, but on Sunday does an English roast meat carvary.
It's a very nice cosy pub with a very nice welcoming atmosphere
We were the last to eat as we went at the end of service (3:15pm) but there was still a very good choice of all the items being served that day.
The meat was beautiful and tender, and very tasty, and you got a lot!!
There was a huge amount of veg to choose from, and the roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings were freshly made, with 2 choices of proper gravy to choose from.
The chef was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The only negative was that it was only warm, the chef was saying that he didn't like to have the lights on too high as it dried the veg out, but maybe lids would help, and not putting too much out at one time, so it was replenished more often.
It could also be that we were the last to eat, but the food should be the same for the first customer as it is for the last.
On the whole it was very good for Sunday lunch and we would go back, but try and get there earlier next time.
Will also return in the evening to try the Chinese food as have heard good things about that, so I'll post that review when I've been.

“Great Chinese meal as usual.”
Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Best Chinese food in the area. Great place to sit down for a meal or collect a take away. The quality of the food has remained very high for years now.
