“Looking forward to going back!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We stayed as a group booking in September and can not wait to go back!
The hospitality, service, food and room comfort was of high standard and can not be faulted. Jad is a perfect landlord and would do anything to help us and ensure our stay was an enjoyable one.
The restaurant menu is varied and all dishes were delicious.
The staff are happy and attentive.
I slept in room number 7, which was large and had everything I needed. Very clean and welcoming.

We held our Annual Club Dinner at the Falcon, the food was excellent, with a great selection, the staff could not have been more helpful and attentive. We will certainly be going back next year.
The Hotel provided us with a dining room to ourselves with computor presentation facilities. It was a great evening enjoyed by one and all. We were able to discuss our menu with Jad. the proprietor, days before the event, which enabled us to give our members their choice beforehand.

When visiting my mother, we tend to go to The Falcon to eat.

We last ate there in June to celebrate my mother's birthday. On that occasion the food was much enjoyed. We returned on 15th September, and this time was no different, in fact, I would say that the quality of the food was even better. I had the Whitebait as a starter, followed by Sea Bass, couldn't fault it, and I am very particular. My partner had the Falafel followed by the Crab cakes, he was also pleased. My mother was also happy with her choice. I would have no hesitation in recommending The Falcon.

Jad's warm welcome, always makes you feel comfortable.

One last praise, the outside floral display is absolutely fantastic. Well done to whoever has " greenfingers"

Oh my goodness, what an absolutely beautifuly appointed and outstanding Inn/Hotel/Restaurant !!!
We stayed there for just the one night on the 8th of September 2012, but, we felt as though we had been there for longer because of the hospitality that we recieved. The rooms are amazingly furnished set in a gorgeous courtyard, spotlessly clean with beautifully laundered bed linen , and spotless en suite facilities too. Now, the food was out of this world and presented to us in the most lovliest way one could think, extremly tasty and very filling too. Smiles from every member of staff all along the way, they couldnt do enough for us. Ive never seen as many flowers outside of the Garden Centre, the colours were amazing !! The Inn owner was wonderful, extremely friendly and helpful, always smiling too... i will definately stay there again, and so should everyone visiting the area ..... 1000 Stars in my opinion... Thank you to all....

Room Tip: Every room was peaceful and tranquil...

Each time I am visiting East Midlands this is my preferred place to stay. Not only the typical pub atmosphere (feels like the own living room being there) but also the friendly staff and the food'n drinks each time I am visit underline it is a good choice.

Of course, you must like this kind of hotel, sometimes when people ask me about the hotel I say "It's more a pub with some bedrooms than a hotel", and this summarizes it very good. When you're looking for some nice and authentic accomondation in the "center of universe" - go there. Jad (owner) is allways there to make your stay a pleasure and this drives the uniqueness of this place - it is a very personal service.

Summarized: food good, drinks good, atmosphere and ambiente great and rooms ok.

We didn't stay at the inn and the review is based on the restaurant only. Meals were ordered and promptly came to the table, they arrived Luke warm, (that's all the meals we ordered) some of the food wasn't even cooked fully. By the time we got half way through our food it became apparent that all the heat had gone out of it. We informed someone of this and the reply was"ok sorry" . Great. I feel that the food there is very over priced and doesn't offer value for money compared to other Everads pubs. I dont understand how they can call the pub a traditional English pub, when 60% of the food menu is Lebonese! Even some English dishes are served in a strange way, also the decor is very dated and is in desperate need of a major refurb. Shabby just Not chic! Very disappointed in my visit and will not be trying this pub again

Thank you for taking the time to post a review.
Everards, thank goodness, do not inflict a set menu with centralised buying on their pubs - that's why every one is different. I originaaly hail from the Lebanon (there is, incidentally, no "o" in Lebanese) and am very proud to be able to offer that country's cusine as part of my menu (certainly not 60% of it). The mezze is one of the most popular options with customers and is one reason why the signs on both sides of the pub say in very large letters "International Cuisine" before you even enter the premises.
We have absolutely no intention of ever being "chic" - I leave that to the so-called gastro pubs and wine bars. We are exactly what we say, a country pub with no pretensions to anything else. The pub has been decorated both inside and out within the past 6 months, so that's how it's supposed to look!
Regards Jad
