“The food is sublime and the presentation exemplary” at this “exquisite” beamed gastropub, whose considerable charms have, over the past decade and a half, established it as a real foodie haunt. Menu options are numerous: from Sunday lunch to a ten-course grazing option. A collaboration with ‘galerie gARTenhaus’ means there is regularly changing art on display.

In a picturesque village ten minutes from Loughborough, this beamed gastroboozer has built up a real foodie following over the past fifteen years for its ambitious cuisine, spanning ten-course grazing menus and haute Sunday lunch; marks remain stellar but it attracted little commentary this year.

“Unpretentious fine dining at its best” is winning a growing foodie reputation for this “down-to-earth” beamed village gastropub, where reports become ever-more enthusiastic.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
