Found this gem online and called in for lunch. The staff and food were excellent and the ambience subtle but welcoming. Pricing good and nothing too much trouble. Highly recommended.

Recently extended and more often than not, busy (as it's so good), so best to book ahead!
Our food was excellent. The staff very friendly. They often have some really good live music as well.
They also have a superb selection of International bottled beers, as well as beer on draught.
Would highly recommend.

Another treasure in Castle Donington. Lovely food and friendly service. Always an enjoyable night on a Friday or Saturday when the live music is playing. Wonderful to have another great restaurant in Castle Donington.
