I went here today for lunch with my husband and another couple of friends. It was faultless from start to finish! The staff are welcoming, there when you need them, really helpful yet unobtrusive.
There is a plethora of places to choose from within a 15 min. drive from Oakham and this one has to be the best all round. (It's also conviently situated for Melton Mowbray.)
Three of us ate from the £11.95 for 2 courses menu,( plus puds.) and the fourth chose à la carte. We shared an excellent bottle of reasonably priced red wine and complimentary bottles of water were waiting on the table. There was a choice of three starters and a choice of three simply delicious main courses. The three of us each chose a different main course and all commented on how good it was. For afters, their sticky toffee pudding with ice cream on a crumble base, served on its own wooden platter was the best we've ever tasted.
We weren't rushed, though it was so busy that we were given a specific time to arrive. Presumably, this was so the chef didn't have to prepare too many dishes at a time, keeping evreyone waiting, as so often happens in poular places. A brilliant idea.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely old restaurant to anyone. From now on, it will certainly be our favourite in the Oakham area.
The total bill for the four of us came to £88, pleasingly unusual in this expensive area.

Had an absolutely first class meal here. Interesting and varied menu. Food was perfectly cooked, absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly, efficient and attentive without being overbearing. I felt that they really cared that we had a nice evening and were enjoying our meals. If you eat from the a la carte menu and not the bar menu the price is maybe slightly higher than other local restaurants but well worth the money. We loved it.

I have dinned at the Berkeley Arms many times and more specifically, I have taken groups of friends and family about 5 times in the last 2 months.

The quality of the food on offer is, in my opinion, faultless. It is also a chance to eat some seldom available country fair, cooked to perfection.

The service is excellent and we have always been made to feel extremely welcome.

Exceptional value for money.

I came here a week ago to a game evening with wines. The food was amazing but with the correct wines chosen by Patrick made it all even better. Will come again to one of these evenings.
