“Rude senior staff, poor food”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

We were a family group, it was our last evening together. It started badly when the manageress put us in a booth which was too small for us. We asked to move but this was impossible apparently. Then the service was terribly slow and the food was poor. The Langton Arms was a local for us for years but the rudeness of the staff on this occasion means we shan't visit again. It's just not good enough and Market Harborough is just up the road with many nicer places to eat.

“Service slow but friendly helpful staff”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Had a lovely table for eight people in an alcove. Service for food very slow but plentiful and good quality on arrival. Appeared short staffed and staff pleasant and helpful but rushed, ie not asking if anything sauces, drinks, extras needed.

“We couldn't have wished for more”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

At very short notice, on a Saturday about 1.30 we rang to see if there was a chance to book a table for five almost immediately. We were told that they were busy with a shooting party but that we would be found a table and we were. The attitude on the phone was welcoming so we raced over. The car park was packed and, indeed they were very busy. However, our food was swiftly served by the charming staff and I must say rarely have I eaten better rack of lamb; pink, succulent and with perfect vegetables.
What stands out to me about this place is the atmosphere which is busy, yes, but calm and relaxed too and I suspect this comes from the top. There is a comfortable 'can do' approach to the customer's wants. The chef clearly knows what he's doing and after several excellent meals here, this must be the first venue I'd think of when wanting to take a friend or my family out for a meal
