“Nice stay, recommended”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Wasn't sure what to expect with some of the reviews but the negative ones on here are best ignored. Medbourne is a delightful village and the Nevill Arms Inn sits near a stream which looks idyllic. We arrived on a Friday night and the place was packed so parking a slight issue but nothing too bad.

My main criticism of the place is, is it a pub with rooms or is it trying to be a hotel? I think the former because there is no reception area, so our 'introduction' was across a bar littered with empty dirty glasses, which wasn't quite what I expected.

However, the members of staff were apologetic and helpful, particularly Maria who showed us to our room. The room (8) looked out over the garden, crowds, stream etc, very nice and loved the mullion windows with leaded light glass. Room was decent size, bathroom a bit small but okay, and shower passed the test, fixed to the wall and constant temperature although they need to fix the dodgy power lead on the the towel rail (please).

We booked dinner in the restaurant (slight issue here with pictures of hunting on the wall, perhaps could do better). Starters very good, and mains not bad. Only issue here is that I ordered liver and bacon which was very nicely cooked and had some decent mash hiding underneath which I found after about 3 days of eating. I have never seen so much liver in my life, more than on the butcher's counter at Sainsbury's. So I would suggest cut the portion by 66% and take some money off the bill!

Woke to absolute silence and the sun coming through the window bathing the room in gold light, it looked brilliant! Breakfast was a superb 'heart attack on a plate' very nicely cooked but also there was fresh fruit for the healthy people!

All in all really enjoyed our short stay here apart from my minor issues we thought it was a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Our room was great, Number 8

An absolutely great place to go for either a relaxing drink, an outstanding restaurant meal or a lighter bar meal. Lovely traditional decor in the main bar with a real fire at each end of the room, and then a modern and stylish restaurant at the back which opens out onto a superb outdoor patio garden with plenty of tables with parasols. There are also outside tables at the front overlooking the stream/river (?). Great beers on offer, including Leffe on draft, a particular favourite of mine, please keep it going! You get a warm and friendly welcome when you arrive and whilst it clearly has a lot of locals who are regulars, you never ever get the feeling of being an outsider. The food here is second to none with a quality menu of stylishly presented food - the garlic ciabatta with stilton is an absolute must, worth travelling for!! The staff are incredibly helpful, my daughter didn't like her mushroom soup and the waitress spotted her and came over and offered to change it for tomato instead, no charge, just really great, caring service. We've visited many times for lunchtime drinkies and food, and have also booked the main restaurant for Mothers Day and Fathers Day specials which have been excellent - even when busy and full, the whole service is run like clockwork and the food is unbeatable. We have never stayed in the accomodation as we live only about half an hour away, but imagine it is lovely. Worth mentioning, well behaved dogs on leads are allowed in the pub area. Pay a vist, you won't be disappointed, and the village of Medbourne is lovely too.

We booked this inn as a stop-over whilst out on business, and couldn't of found better. From setting foot inside, we were met with friendly attentive staff, great beers, and incredible food.
The rooms are very comfortable and well maintained, and tied in to a lovely quiet village, so had a great nights sleep.
Breakfast was the same; friendly staff, freshly cooked breakfast, and great food.
We will certainly be using this friendly Inn again!

Just come back from a wonderfully relaxing two night stay at the Nevill Arms.
Lovely picturesque setting in the middle of quiet village, nIce room, good food and very friendly attentive staff.
Tables out the front overlooking the village stream and footbridge and a spacious well appointed rear garden/patio area.The weather certainly helped make this a memorable stay.
Despite minor criticism of no obvious person in charge, we would definitely return and recommend.

Stayed overnight at the Nevill Arms. Spacious front room with four poster and separate modern bathroom. Sandstone and mullioned windows, picturesque village. The Inn is just set back from the river Welland. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast taken in a spacious and airy conservatory was well cooked with plenty of choice including fresh fruit salad. Lovely courtyard with landscaped gardens and gazebos. We took coffee outside after breakfast. The restaurant had nice marble floors and looked as if it had been recently refurbished. Had an evening meal with a starter of bread from the wonderful Hambleton bakery and olives. Main course was disappointing. The crab salad did not have any salad and the crab was a bit dull despite lemon mayonnaise. The bar area is a bit tatty and there is no proper hotel reception. But the new café at the back of the inn is lovely and sells all sorts of deli goods too. Would stay again as it was a peaceful location. Would avoid the weekend as any do's might make it noisy.

Room Tip: Room at front might be very noisy as there is seating outside.

We went here for afternoon tea two weeks ago. The food was lovely. We picked the filling for our sandwiches and they were lovely. Cakes and scones were also very tasty.
We would definitely go again would probably try sunday lunch x

A marvellous Sunday night supper. My wife had a generous portion of freshly cooked fish and chips and I had the freshest breaded scampi I'd ever eaten. The service was excellent, the beer ice cold and the location as lovely as you could imagine for an English country pub. Highly recommended.
