The food was exceptional; the wine list great.....however, to shrug off a missing starter from our table as 'Oops! oh well, we are like Faulty Towers...' was not a good move. Whether the waiting staff or the kitchen made the mistake - they should have just said, really sorry, we made a mistake. We were entertaining clients and it just... More

My wife and I had Sunday lunch with our son and his wife. He had heard good things about the venue as must have many others as this was the first time it was not fully booked when he tried to make a reservation. We all had the 3 course lunch, two of us had a roast and two the... More

We were on our way back from Norfolk and came across the pub. The staff were very friendly and the dogs were welcome. The menu is quite extensive and although we only has a wrap there were some delicious looking meals being served

Superb atmosphere in a small intimate restaurant. A gem on the Rutland/Leicester border. We haven enjoyed evenings here on many occasions and it's our No 1 restaurant in the area. the food is always first class.

This is our third visit so not a novelty anymore and I have to say that it is a most enjoyable experience but not exceptional in relation to the price. With starters ranging from £7 to £11 something for scallops and £17 to over £23 for fillet steak, it should be very good.There is plenty of good choice in the... More

We ate at the restaurant on a Friday night. The bar area is so cosy and beautifully decorated. The staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. The restaurant area is small and intimate. The food was amazing and very nicely presented. Would definitely recommend it!

My friends and I visited the aqua park at Rutland Water today, and afterwards were famished! As this was only 2 miles away we decided to pop in. We were worried that maybe we couldn't eat there as they usually only take bookings (obviously very popular) but thankfully they could accommodate us. The food was absolutely delicious, good value and... More

Arrived at the restaurant and had drinks outside which was very pleasant. The food was superb and the staff were fantastic. Definitely worth another visit.

My husband and I chose to take a fussy food oriented friend here to eat, based on our previous outings. The food was better than ever, and the service, as usual, was impeccable. If you are looking for something cheap and cheerful, this is not the place for you. However, if you appreciate excellent food and elegant service in lovely... More

My wife and I went for a lunchtime meal on the 24th July for our anniversary. It's a special place with superb food and a nice selection of drinks including Champagne which was very good. We will return at some point as it was very good. 2 course meal on a Sunday was £22.50 each and you won't be disappointed.
