Review on The Manners Arms

Built as a hunting lodge for the 6th Duke of Rutland during the 1880s, this fine old building is now owned by the current Duke - whose country seat, Belvoir Castle, is just a stone's throw away. Much of the interior of the pub was designed by the Duchess, who raided the family home for many of the furnishings and antiques that now fill the place.

The rustic Beaters Bar is just the spot for a pint and a chat with the locals amid Windsor chairs, log fires and polished floorboards. By contrast, the Redcoats Restaurant is an altogether swisher prospect with its swagged floral fabrics, deep red walls and corniced ceilings.

The kitchen sources much of its produce locally, with game from the Estate and Leicestershire cheeses showing up strongly. Expect an eclectic mix of traditional and innovative dishes ranging from pan-fried foie gras with caramelised apple and fillet of beef with braised faggot and creamed spinach to seared scallops with crab risotto and porcini foam or poached salmon with cauliflower purée, risola potatoes and shellfish essence.

Local Stilton naturally takes pride of place on the cheeseboard; otherwise enjoy something sweet - perhaps a trio of banana desserts or raspberry pannacotta with pear sorbet and black pepper tuile. During the summer, boisterous barbecues with live jazz are held on the enticing terrace.
