The high ceilings and wood panelling of this four-star rural retreat are complemented by the classic British cuisine of the AA rosette awarded Shires Restaurant. Outside, their landscaped garden features a patio area for alfresco dining and leads down to the waters of the River Soar.

Afternoon tea was OK, but ridiculously when we arrived we were told there were no hot drinks available 'because the machine was broken'. No kettles anywhere in a hotel? Really? Eventually they did manage to boil some water somehow and provided tea. We did however get a free soft drink from the bar while we were waiting.

It's impossible to book over the phone and if you book by email you don't a confirmation reply so you are guessing and hoping you are booked in... diarty requirements are asked for but won't get transferred between booking and chief so make sure you tell the waiters. The environment is clean and pleasant to be in and the staff happy and welcoming

Lovely decor and attentive waitress. The selection of food was excellent. Replenishment of tea was no problem. We really enjoyed our experience.

I was slightly worried about the aftrnoon tea based on other negative reviews. However I have to say it was really good. The sandwiches were lovely and we couldn't finish all the cakes and scones. It was beautifully presented and the staff were very attentive. Would be happy to go there again

Great ambiance and lovely people. Service was brilliant, prompt and to the point and well mannered. The food was decent considering our specific dietary requirements, however they can be a little more inventive with the sandwich fillings without much more effort. But all in all I was stuffed and enjoyed the afternoon tea.

Waiter and receptionist very good. However there was also a wedding on at the same time and i did feel we were intruding a bit. Sandwiches nice but not enough. Only 4 small fingers. No offer of more. Also scones although warm were dry. So that was rather disappointing. Could do better.
