The good pub guide review

You'll be bowled over by this stylish pub that's set up equally well for casual dining or a relaxing drink and a chat. Straddling the Leicestershire/Nottinghamshire border in an hilltop village on the edge of the picturesque Vale of Belvoir, it's owned by England and Nottinghamshire cricketers Stuart Broad and Harry Gurney. Modern décor mixes modish paintwork in dark green and grey, walls of bare brick and metro tiles, tiled floors and a nice mix of wooden café and dining chairs and tables. Old photos and a large map cover one wall. There's a bar area with tub chairs, a leather sofa, stools by the polished wood counter and a brick fireplace with a woodburner, and also an attractive conservatory set for dining with large palms in pots. Friendly young staff serve well kept Charnwood Vixen, Timothy Taylors Landlord and a guest ale on handpump, along with a farm cider, 20 wines by the glass and a good range of gins, whiskies and rums. There's a patio and garden with seating.

The good pub guide food review

Rewarding food from a shortish menu mixes pub classics with more restauranty options. Dishes includes crispy calamari salad, white stilton pannacotta with pickled walnut, mango and date, beef brisket pie with mash, duck breast with aubergine croquettes, pomegranate and tarragon salsa, wild mushroom pappardelle with spinach, courgette and corn fritter with fermented kale and corn chipotle, burger and chips, and puddings such as lemon custard tart with blueberries and clotted cream, and chocolate fudge pie with orange mascarpone; a three-course set menu is available weekdays.
