“Back again and wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Attentive friendly service and the usual good food - this restaurant never lets us down whether a special meal, afternoon tea or just a quick bowl of soup. Popped in for lunch with my family and a close friend - they are always very accommodating if you wish to change things about especially if you have a picky 4 year old with you!!! Great home made chips - tasty soup and the desserts are a must!!!! They also do a great salad combo where you have the base and then you can customize it to your liking. Would recommend this over any of the other places in Oakham.

“Very enjoyable evening!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

There are not many really good places to eat out in Oakham. This is traditional English food with has been lovingly prepared, good size portions and politely served. We enjoyed the selection which was sufficient for everyone in the group but not too much variety. The smoke salmon and prawns were delicious, we also had seafood chowder and pate. We could not fault the main courses too. The only negatives were the crudités had gone soft by the time we were served them at approx 8.40pm so must have been done well in advance, there were no cold bitters kept in the fridge and the upstairs lacked some atmosphere. All in all, good value and certainly worth a visit.

“Lovely food and excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

Came here for lunch and the food was good - creme brûlée particularly excellent! What was even better was the lovely staff - had a minor complaint and they were so nice about it and sorted everything immediately. Would definitely recommend!
