Hello and thank you for taking the time to post a review.
What a pleasure it was to host you all over the weekend in question. An excellent atmosphere in our restaurant, bar, function rooms and hotel was commented on by staff and other guests alike. We are so pleased that we delivered the standards aimed for here at the Appleby Inn during the course of the weekend. We catered for you in many ways from our restaurant and bar area where we reserved areas for you on the Friday and Sunday and your private evening function on the Saturday in our Adelaide suite, along with breakfast each morning!
We aim to offer value with our prices and the fact this is reflected in your review is most pleasing. I do hope we get to welcome you and others from the party in the future and thank you for choosing the Appleby Inn as the venue for your weekend, once again it was an absolute pleasure to host you all.

Hello and thank you for your review. We are glad we ticked all your boxes in terms of requirements! We cater for many special occasions within our bar restaurant, our layout allows us to accommodate you in a comfortable manner.
The menu is vast and aimed to provide choice to all guests with differing tastes, thank you for acknowledging this.
Our new adventure trail and outside seating area is a welcome addition. Being a family friendly establishment for many years now we aim to further our amenities for families and the adventure trail does so brilliantly. It is very warming to hear positive feedback whether it be from our continued restaurant service to our additions on our outside garden, we very much look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

“As good as always!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We have been to the appleby inn many times before and is as good now as it's always been,it's located on the borders of north warwickshire,Leicestershire,derbyshire not far from Junc 11M42,the premises are big enough to deal with any occasion,always has a warm welcome,and a extensively stocked bar,the food on the menu is typical of this type of out let,but the specials board is a different story and very good,all food is well presented.
but the best thing is that from walking in the front door getting a drink finding a table and ordering and eating the food, we are always out of the pub within the hour not for everybody i know but we like the service.

Hello and thank you for such positive feedback.
We are glad you enjoy visiting us at the Appleby Inn. Your repeat custom is very much valued and along with many other regular faces we see it gives us great pleasure to know that we are delivering a high standard of service on a consistent basis.
A warm welcome is the least our customers deserve and we feel it only right to make diners feel welcome and homely whilst visiting us at the Appleby Inn Hotel, our staff are a friendly attentive group and enjoy interacting with our customers.
Our menu aims to cater for the varied cliental that passes through our establishment, offering choice for everyone. As you have said the specials board is a different story. Offering differing dishes to our main menu, the extensive specials board is one where our chefs creativity offers guests something varying to what they might usually expect from us along with our usual high quality at affordable prices, we are pleased you enjoy them as such.
As you said you can have a flying visit to the Appleby Inn but you are also very welcome to come and take your time and spend some more time with us! Our size enables us to cater for most occasions and large groups but here at the Appleby Inn Hotel a table of 2 is as welcomed as a table of 20!
We look forward to welcoming you again with us and thank you again for such kind feedback.

“Good pub food”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Good pub food and friendly service. Menu is reasonably priced and it wasn't too busy on a Friday lunch time. Will probably visit again. Not quite got the wow factor but overall no complaints.
