Castle Italian

Main Street, Caldecott, Nr. Market Harborough, LE16 8RT
Situated in the heart of the Welland Valley on Leicestershire's border with Rutland and Northamptonshire, the Castle Italian occupies a spot where in times past you could drink in one room in Leicestershire until 10.30pm, move to a room in Northamptonshire and continue drinking until 11pm.

These days, the Castle serves great modern European and Italian food freshly cooked to order, proudly using ingredients sourced from regional growers and suppliers. Meat, seafood, fruit and vegetables come from local companies with strong ethical policies.

The Castle Classics menu offers wholesome, generously portioned dishes at affordable prices - featuring freshly made soup with warm crusty bread, a platter of prosciutto and mountain ham to share, beef Wellington, freshly caught local Eyebrook trout, chicken liver and pork paté with apricot compote and vegetarian treats such as mixed mushroom stroganoff with white wine cream and rice. Whatever you choose, your tastebuds are in for a treat. You'll also find a fine selection of wines to complement your meal and some excellent real ales, as well as some seriously tempting desserts - choose from treats like sticky toffee pudding, chef's apple cake with toffee sauce and the trio of pancakes.

Their Italian menu demonstrates the diversity and skill of the Castle's chefs, offering the diner delicious and authentic dishes such as the antipasto Siciliano - a vegetarian antipasti board packed with the flavours of fior di latte mozzarella, roasted peppers, artichoke, garlic-marinated aubergine and olives. The quality continues on the mains menu with spaghetti Napolitana - spaghetti with tomato, courgettes and mushrooms, white wine, garlic, basil and Parmesan - and pollo alla Castle - chicken breast stuffed with gorgeous mozzarella, tomato, basil and mushroom, served with rice and chargrilled vegetables. At the end of 2010 a new stonebake pizza oven was introduced, enabling visitors to sample pizza cooked in good, authentic fashion.

Together with their 20 en-suite bedrooms, the Castle Italian is the perfect choice of venue for a wedding, a party or simply as a base for exploring local attractions such as 14th-Century Rockingham Castle, fishing at Eyebrook, Rockingham Motor Speedway or Rutland Water.
