Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
This charming hotel stands opposite the town’s bustling railway station, making it easily accessible and a great base from which to explore Melton Mowbray. Inside, the 120-seat restaurant forms part of the spacious ground floor, and offers excellent value for money, as does the large, well-stocked bar. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the service is quick, and the long menu is packed with mainly traditional dishes, served in generous portions. There is something to suit all tastes and appetites, from light bites to a delicious six-meat Sunday carvery. In the summer, guests can relax in the lovely beer garden.
Our meals were tasty and filling, evidently home-cooked with fresh ingredients. My husband’s prawn cocktail was fresh and flavoursome, while I enjoyed scrumptious breaded mushrooms, fried and paired with a light garlic dip. The 12oz gammon steak that my husband tucked into next was especially tender and succulent, and came with pineapple rings, peas and salad and a big fluffy jacket potato. My homemade cottage pie was topped with grated cheese and was delightfully warming. For dessert my partner chose a selection of Farmhouse Beachden ice creams. My sweet lemon roulade disappeared rather quickly, too. Visitors can opt to stay the night in one of the 33 en-suite rooms. Parties and weddings can also be catered for.
