“Basil Fawlty!”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Well, at least Basil was sometimes polite... The man behind the bar merely gave us a stony stare. - So much for a welcome! He almost sneered when my husband asked for a sparkling water and when I asked if they serve sandwiches, he pointed coldly at a (small) list on the wall. Very uninspiring it was too - cheese and tomato, tuna and mayo , BLT and one other I think. We asked for a sandwich and glass of wine for me to be served in the garden. He coldly agreed. When said sandwich arrived, it was at least fresh, and the man almost cracked a smile when I smiled at him. A welcome? We certainly didn't feel welcomed, it was more like we were a complete nuisance.

Reviewed 10 November 2011

This pub is just down the road from Kilworth House Hotel. It is situated on the main road into Husbands Bosworth.
East to find, with parking behind, this is a cosy, friendly pub with absolutely fantastic food.
The prices are very reasonable and the food is great, with a good choice and even if it isn't on the menu, the chef is very accommodating and will rustle you something up if you ask.
We have already returned to sample the culinary delights here and will definitely be going again. It's a little old fashioned pub with friendly local and staff, no frills, just a good atmosphere and fantastic food... what more could you ask!!
