“Average bland food with grumpy rude staff”
Reviewed 20 August 2012 via mobile

The highlight of the pub is the exterior. Step in and they haven't made anything of the interior. Minimal range of bottled beers, served warm. Staff grumpy and non-regulars made to feel unwelcome. Dull menu and really average if bland food served in a restaurant area that needs bringing into the 21st century - cheap paper serviettes and place settings that hark back to the 80s. Should and could be so much more.

“Didn't quite hit the mark”
Reviewed 16 August 2012

Wonderful building, gardens, real ale and staff. The pity was the menu. It fell short of imaginative and on our visit, lacked several dishes and condiments. What we had was fair but unremarkable. I guess this establishment could do better.

“Lovely town pub with plenty of history and lots of character”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Lovely town pub with plenty of history and lots of character features, there is a heated outside beer garden with seating, umbrella's, fresh food cooked to order and the landlord looks like Paul O'Grady complete with scouser accent

“Atmospheric and cosy pub - food availability seems hit and miss!”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

Really like this historic pub in the centre of Melton. It is very atmospheric and cosy and that was in summer! It will be even better in winter with the log fires roaring. It is clearly a popular place to eat and the food looks really nice although I can't comment on what it tastes like as the two times we went, they had run out of food or had just closed the kitchen. We will go back however and I would definitely recomment a visit.
