A comfortable old local bristling with homely touches, with crackling log-burners in the main rooms and a tree-shaded beer garden looking over the rich pasturelands of this corner of Leicestershire. It’s at the heart of the extensive National Forest, whilst Calke Abbey is a leisurely drive away. Bright and airy inside, with colourwash and panelled walls and nooks and crannies to explore, Marston's Pedigree complements the sturdy menu. Kick in with goats’ cheese and poached pear, following up with wild boar sausages or steak and ale pie with Stilton; some gluten-free options are available too.
