Main St, SADDINGTON, LE8 0QH
Set in the rolling hills of south Leicestershire with views over Saddington Reservoir, this spacious family-friendly pub promises a welcoming and relaxing experience. Everards and a brace of guest ales, plus 11 wines by the glass and guest ciders, are the prime refreshments, while the work of Chris Lewis-Sharman in the kitchen pleases all-comers. A lighter menu offers the likes of goats' cheese and walnut roulade, spicy tomato and garlic coulis; pan-fried sea bass, Thai potato cake, sweet chilli salsa, deep-fried tiger prawns; and lemon and lime pannacotta with berry compôte. Children have their own menu, and there's plenty of room for them to play outside.
