Not been here since it changed. I was glad I did. Bit of a last minute choice on the way home from Coalville. I decided to treat myself to a 3 coarse meal!!!! Oh Camembert then ribeye steak followed by a red velvet cheesecake that I really shouldn't have had but oh my!!!!!! It's good. Everything was fabulous. Service wise...

I visited this week with a work colleague and we decided to pick two meals from the 2 for £10 - I had the classic beef burger. It was excellent value for money, really tasty and a decent sized portion. We also both chose the salted caramel brownie for dessert which was absolutely delicious! The service was really good too...

Stayed one night on business trip, working in area. Couldn't fault it really. Big room with everything you wanted in it, great bar/restaurant area attached and friendly local staff. Selection of food/drinks to suit everyone, big car park and pretty outside garden areas. Also, short walk across road to riverside pathways. Great value too, made pleasant change from chain hotels....
