Hambleton Hall

Exton, Rutland, 60-100£
17/03/2017: Lovely rooms,beautiful gardens,great location overlooking Rutland Water. The food in the restaurant was sublime. A well balanced menu complimented by an extensive wine list.
15/03/2017: From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome. My wife was wished a. Happy Birthday as soon as we got to reception. Our very comfortable room overlooked the beautiful gardens and Rutland water and the sun shone. Our menus had Birthday greeting to my wife printed inside, and other touches made for a lovely reminder. The food was, like everything, excellent.

Lighthouse

Norbury, Derbyshire Dales
13/03/2017: The 8 course tasting menu plus amuse bouche, and petit fours, then an optionalCheese course was £58 pp. The price I believe is going up slightly soon. The restaurant itself was relaxed yet smart and the young staff were well trained, professional and assets to the business. The tasting menu was fairly varied and honestly every single dish was splendid. The owner small criticism would be that the optional cheese course online says £5.50 extra and has gone up to £8 now, and I felt this was a little over priced for four small thin slices on cheese with crackers and condiment. Especially as the cheeses were not the most exciting nor as described by the waiter when asked. And this is per person. Overall this restaurant is a little gem. We had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to try further tasting menus.
13/03/2017: The 8 course tasting menu was very enjoyable although the first two courses we found a touch pretentious (bread roll as second course!). Some lovely dishes followed but the scallops were let down by a salty risotto. Superb sweets. Staff were lovely. Little in the way of ambiance and the electric heating by our table was erratic and did let the restaurant down.

Stones Restaurant

Matlock All Saints, Derbyshire Dales, 45-60£
18/03/2017: We visited with friends they were meat eaters we eat fish but not meat. An excellent meal with quality wine was enjoyed by all. The restaurant is not spacious but is contemporary and airy. A great place for those special occasions, certainly the best restaurant we have visited in Derbyshire.
16/03/2017: I visited this establishment last year but for some reason I now seem addicted to writing reviews ( no idea why or possibly because I have found them helpful. ). The restaurant is set down some steps adjacent to the town bridge and a short walk from the Railway station. It is nicely decorated and there is a terrace overlooking the river for drinks etc.I was in a group with two other couples.Service is excellent and friendly. The food menu is extensive and quite innovative. As I recall I had a lamb dish which was well executed. ( I am afraid I am not really a Gourmet but I do know what tastes nice ) It`s not cheap by any means but it is good value for a decent dining experience.

Berkeley Arms

Wymondham, Melton
12/03/2017: If we hadn't taken a detour cross country we wouldn't have discovered this wonderful pub! We stopped for lunch, the two courses was very tempting and reasonably priced but we opted for mains from a la carte. We had the Lincolnshire sausage in rich gravy and mashed potatoes and the battered haddock with thick chips and mushy peas. Both excellent meals and ample for us. A nice pint of Wherry too. The staff were very friendly and attentive. They brought a jug of water and some bread to keep us going. We didn't have room for the tempting puddings!
20/02/2017: First visit with 2 friends for Sunday lunch. We were immediately impressed with the homely gastropub atmosphere and prompt friendly service. We each had different mains with all four offerings receiving accolades. Everything was full of flavour and beautifully cooked. The excellent quality extended to the desserts and coffee. At a little over £25 per head with drinks really splendid value. We will return !

Restaurant Sat Bains

Dunkirk and Lenton, Nottingham, >100£
18/03/2017: 2 Michelin starred restaurant with rooms oddly situated just off a flyover on a (i have no idea if it is for sure but it looks like) an unadopted back road.Lovely decoration when you get there both inside and outside (we've not stayed overnight so this just refers to reception area and restaurant) but its sort of ultra modern country farmhouse (I appreciate that last bit doesn't really make sense but go and you'll see what I mean)Service from beginning to end is utterly fabulous and there's every chance (unlike many places) that the chef Sat Bains will be on the stove duty (and indeed visit your table to ask your opinion of the food) Wine list is large, some great options, but expensive mark ups in my opinion.It's a tasting menu and like many it does kind of vary from utterly brilliant to a bit eek - you can obviously tell them things that you can't/don't want to eat in advance (they actually asked on the day also).The vast majority was stunning. The odd thing was just plain weird. An occasional thing unpleasnt. Everything was presented beautifully.I enjoyed it a great deal. Theres no doubting it's expensive and certainly not somewhere to take a relative that prefers a good hearty roast (you will certainly not leave hungry but if you're more of a Savoy Grill steak and chips inclined person you may not be overly impressed) but as long as you've an open mind and appreciate extremely good cooking with a twist it's a bloody good experience)
18/03/2017: I have been wanting to visit this restaurant for years. It's been a bucket list dream of mine for a long time so my husband surprised me by booking a table for my birthday.I had high expectations but every one of them were surpassed.Everything was perfect! The staff, the beautiful restaurant and bar area, and obviously the food.We opted for the 10 course menu and added the duck egg course Sat had won the Great British Menu with. I also opted for the wine pairing. The Sommelier's knowledge and passion for her job and wine were clear to see. I had some wines that I would never have ordered (including the sparkling Saki) but I enjoyed every one of them. The Sommelier was kind enough to provide me a list of the wines I tried and I am planning on purchasing some to try again. The food was perfect, I have been asked by friends which was my favourite course but I can't pick one, there were a few stand outs but I can honestly say I wasn't served anything I wouldn't want again. I always said it would be a one time wish to dine at Restaurant Sat Bains but after this one time I very much hope to visit again in the future.

The Folly Inn

Towcester Brook, South Northamptonshire, 30-45£
16/03/2017: Went there today,warm welcome upon arrival ,i had the pork belly and the others pork fillet,both look fantastic upon arrival at the table and tasted fantastic Well worth a visit!
12/03/2017: I met up there with friends at lunch time. We had Fish and chips which were very good and the batter on the fish was light yet crunchy. We then had the sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce which was delicious as well.The staff were friendly and helpful. I travelled from Northampton and although there were some road works I got there within 25 minutes and the same for the return journey, quicker than I have got to some restaurants nearer.

White Horse

Kings Sutton, South Northamptonshire, 20-30£
16/03/2017: What an absolutely divine Sunday lunch we enjoyed here. It comes as no surprise that this place is so busy and bookable in advance. Set meal at £20 for three courses is an absolute steal. Starter of duck parfait good (too big a serving to finish). Roast beef was the best I've eaten in a while. Parsnips and red cabbage both good but if I'm honest I didn't rate the roast spuds as I prefer them crispy rather than waxy and firm. Dessert was chocolate and salted caramel tart and also pretty good. Staff very friendly and helpful.
13/03/2017: Went recently with 5 friends for Sunday lunch and booked the little private room which I think they call Chefs Table. Food excellent, staff very attentive. Parking is limited on premises but outside on road is ok. Will certainly be back again.

The Apiary Cafe Bar

Castle Donington, North West Leicestershire
18/03/2017: I stopped by to have lunch here with my Son. Enjoyed friendly service from the front of house and having looked at the menu we decided to order a burger and a glass of wine each. The food was excellent! I shall definitely return.
18/03/2017: She really needs a customer liaison course, spoilt what was a great evening ! Great music, nice ambiance, food enjoyable. The aggressive attitude of the landlady spoilt a good evening. You only need to read her reaction to other reviews !

MemSaab

Radford and Park, Nottingham, 45-60£
19/03/2017: Didn't have a booking but went early before catching a show. We had an outstanding experience all the way from the greeting, to the service to the food ! The team of staff each played their own role and had the choreographed service down to a tee. Every member of staff greeted us with professionalism and a smile not at all robotic. The food was fresh, beautifully flavored & served hot !
16/03/2017: By far the best Indian restaurant we have eaten in in the UK ..A family favourite and choice for birthdays despite the 1 1/2 trip .. worth it everytime..We have eaten here spring, summer, Autumn, Winter for the past 8 years and have never been dissapointed ..The Hostess adds to the occasion everytime, her choice to the most beautiful traditional gowns make Bollywood look like they are playing at it !

Six Bells Witham

Bourne West, South Kesteven
19/03/2017: First time visitors here and we had a really nice evening.The staff were very attentive but not overbearing, friendly and polite. Small menu but that is fine, can't stand massive menus! If I was to be really picky, as it's a small menu not a great selection for veggies esp if your not a fan of goats cheese or risottos. We did however bring this to our servers attention as both starter and main course veggie options consisted of goats cheese. They were very accommodating and we were offered an alternative. 3 out of the 4 of us had pizza from the wood fired oven, very tasty dough beautifully thin bases. The Sea Bream was cooked well and served with a lovely Crab Macaroni. Wine was really good, great selection which is always a plus.All in all a nice little find and would visit again.
15/03/2017: We had an excellent 3course meal this evening.The service was fast and efficient and the food really tasty and well-presented.My husband chose steak from the Auberge menu and thoroughly enjoyed it.I chose goats cheese, followed by fish. The cod was fresh and lightly cooked, delicious.I can recommend this friendly pub.

Ascough's Bistro

Market Harborough-Little Bowden, Harborough, <20£
18/03/2017: We hadn't been to Ascough's for a while so it was good to visit again. An unplanned visit to Market Harborough and we were able to get a table for lunch at the last minute. Whilst always good its clear that the kitchen has further improved, more confident in the food combinations and presentation. The ham hock sausage with egg and piccalilli vegetables was good, the pork tenderloin and braised cheek equally so. The star was the cod served with Asian inspited noodles, pak choi and sweet potato puree. A great combination and cooked to give a real flavour sensation. Really enjoyable and I don't know of anywhere in the midlands for a better value quality lunch
15/03/2017: I have visited this restaurant a number of times, meeting up with friends, and on one occasion as a couple with my wife. The food is excellent and the service the same. The menu changes often and I have not been disappointed yet. It does get very busy and I would advise that you book well in advance. You won't be disappointed if you are a food lover.

Ricci's

Bakewell, Derbyshire Dales, <20£
17/03/2017: Only popped in for a coffee, best cappuccino I have had. Pizzas looked amazing. Friendly family run Italian.
14/03/2017: I visited here with my partner whilst staying in a nearby village.We didn't fancy "pub grub" so had a wander and came across this little gem! I had vegetable lasagna which takes around 20 mins to cook but it's well worth the wait! Very generous size and very tasty. My partner being a pizza critic really enjoyed his pizza too. The lady and gent (sorry didn't catch their names) were really nice and made us feel very welcome. We hope to visit again sometime.
