Featured Rutland Restaurants
. Hitchen's Barn
British, Modern restaurant in Oakham
12 Burley Road - LE15
“Neil and Louise Hitchen have now left the lovely Berkeley Arms at Wymondham and opened this town-centre bistro, which slightly lacks the ambience of their pub but in every other respect is superb”. On the menu, “excellent seasonal food including game”, which is “smilingly and delightfully” delivered with “speedy efficiency”. “Massively popular in a short time – deservedly”: “booking is essential”.
. Finch’s Arms
British, Modern restaurant in Hambleton
Oakham Rd - LE15
“A good, hearty, meat-rich lunch and a pint by an open fire on a cold November day in the middle of Rutland Water: there are worse places to be…”. This “modernised” and extended old inn – “the original bits are by far the best, with open fires in the bar” – has a “brilliant location” with a big garden (and can become “exceptionally busy in the summer months, at which time service gets stretched”). “There are good set lunches and bar fare, but the cooking can be variable, with the occasional strange mix of ingredients leading to a mild note of caution”. “An out of season bar lunch though can be a very pleasant experience.”
. The Wheatsheaf
British, Modern restaurant in Greetham
Stretton Rd - LE15

. Tap & Kitchen
British, Modern restaurant in Oundle
Station Road - PE8
“Consistently good” modern brasserie cooking “with beers from the adjacent brewery” (by sister company Nene Valley Brewers) makes for an attractive package at this modern wharfside warehouse operation.
