Good Hotel Guide Review

Arise and go now, and go to Uppingham, to find this ‘delightful hotel in a delightful town’, its poetic name recalling WB Yeats’s yearning for the peace of Innisfree. Instead of the poet’s clay-and-wattle cabin, Janine and Richard Burton’s hotel and popular restaurant (‘it has the locals piling in’) occupies an 18th-century building on the High Street. Here, Stuart Mead’s modern fusion cooking (perhaps molasses-cured rump of lamb, heritage carrots, whipped feta, couscous) may make poets of us all. ‘We’ve never had a less-than-perfect meal here. And the puddings are to die for,’ writes a Guide reader who has known the place for years. Plus, ‘the food is some of the best at the price in the country’. Some bedrooms may be petite – guests wanting to spread out should book a cottage room with a sitting area – but ‘they’re plenty big enough, and right for the price’. ‘Ours had a small bathroom; all was scrupulously clean.’ In the morning, find ‘proper choices and a proper feast’ at breakfast. Drive now, and drive to Rutland Water, to hear lake water lapping by the shore. (KJ Salway, CLH, AD and J Lloyd)

Guest comments

'The only twin bedded room is not large but perfectly adequate in size. Beds extremely comfortable. During a very hot weekend, the hotel supplied a fan, and with the window wide open it was not too hot. As usual the evening meal was superb. Breakfast similarly brilliant. All ingredients top quality and cooked to perfection. ' - Christine Hodgkin - June, 2017
'A very good and appetizing meal (decent size portions) yesterday at this two rosette restaurant. With a tip, the total for six was £200, representing considerable value. Polite, attentive service and a good selection of wine available by the glass at fair prices. ' - Robert and Pauline Gower - June, 2017
'Exactly what I expect from that kind of price. A smallish room but plenty big enough, with a small bathroom, which had a bath with shower over. Nothing outstanding, but nothing lacking, and scrupulously clean. The reason you stay is the food which is some of the best at that price in the country. In all the years it has existed we have never had a less than perfect evening meal there; their puddings have always been "to die for". The breakfasts don't disappoint . ' - Christine Hodgkin - February, 2017
'Delightful hotel in delightful town; delightful staff; small bedroom; very good three-course meal at £17-50 specially created for holiday period. ' - KJ Salway Salway - July, 2016
'Excellent food. Room fine. No downstairs rooms (listed building) but otherwise top marks. ' - AD and J Lloyd - February, 2016
