We are not the biggest fans of carveries but we make an exception for the carvery at The Rancliffe Arms. Proper food and so much choice. The carvery is a little more expensive than at some other places but well worth paying a bit extra for good quality food. This place gets very busy on a Sunday so be sure... More

My favourite place in Nottingham! The food is amazing, plenty of it, excellent value and so much to choose from. Roast beef a winner. This is always on our places to go whenever we are back in Notts.

An excellent carvery in between Christmas and New Year. Great choice of meats and vegetables and then an impressive array of desserts/cheeses to choose from. Good value for money and good service. We will be back!

We happened to pop in for a spot of lunch and we're blown away by the amazing carvery offer. 4 meats and a fantastic choice of veg. A dessert table full of gorgeous choice of pudding, cheesecakes and even cheese and biscuits. And then to be told it's unlimited was just amazing value at just £16.50. The food was top... More

Spent a lovely few hours here with friends on Sunday evening enjoying great food and a fabulously festive atmosphere. The carvery was excellent - wonderful choice of beautifully cooked meats and an extensive choice of vegetables. This was followed by an impressive selection of puddings and/or cheese and biscuits. Totally delicious - and given the quality and presentation of the... More

This was a social for a Sunday carvery, which we have been to a few times. Always an excellent carvery with an amazing variety of meat and vegetables. Not cheap but always good quality.

Just stopped here for lunch, got a very nice pint but told that and food orders would be 30 minutes, so we didn't order. There was just one woman behind the bar and a colleague who couldn't sell beer because they were underage! We therefore spent an age at the bar. Oh yes and no wifi. Won't be going back.

Called in for an early doors drink, on a Friday night. Wondered why it was empty! Flat lager (no branded glasses with widget), no beer mats, no internet, massive TV on with no sound. However there was an open fire with loads of comfortable leather settees. Bar staff were lethargic and uninterested in positive feedback. Could be a great place,... More
