I used to frequent this hotel many years ago, when it was independently managed. Now part of a national chain, the hotel has been extended and caters for local diners and pub trade as well as being a hotel. On this occasion I had a midweek lunch time meeting and though busy, we were served food in a reasonable time. Typical of the national chains, the orders were placed (and paid for) at the bar and you receive a numbered wooden spoon to place in a tankard on your table. My colleague and I chose from a lunchtime menu - 2 courses for £8.50 - which appeared to be good value. The food was average, my Chicken dish was described as "Chicken Breast in a hard cheese crumb". It was very dry and crispy and did not taste much of cheese! However, I washed it down with a beer and it soon disappeared from the plate.
The menu was very varied and other dishes did look more appetizing, though were not available on the £8:50 menu.
There is ample car parking and Dunchurch is a very appealing village with lots of thatched roofs about. Probably a good place for a family Sunday lunch.
