We have been going to The Pytchley for years and have always been more than happy with the service and the wonderful food. We were there yesterday as it was my birthday, unfortunately I did find a small stone in my salad. I told the waitress who said it was a "Pip" how do you get a pip in a...

Sat 7th Jan, 530pm evening meal. Nice time to suit the kids. Small portions available as well as child's menu. Food was timely and good. Great service as always. The breakfast is goo as well. You don't need to be a resident :) That's a bit lazy for a local, but its fab, also OK if your passing!

Thank you for a lovely meal and for accommodating our group of 15 the week before Christmas. Considering how busy you were, you responded to each of requests with no fuss but most importantly a smile. The staff are an absolute credit and made us feel so comfortable and welcome. As for the food, perfect. Hot, fabulous portion size, perfectly...

I arrived at 8pm to be told that the shower didn't work in my room, with no other room available. Not great news after a 3 hour drive. The lady on reception was extremely helpful and apologetic. She was kind enough to offer a discount off the room, free drinks etc. Unfortunately these generous offers can not compensate for a...

We had a lovely evening at the Pytchley for a family birthday. The steaks were delicious, piping hot and a good size. Sadly, my lasagne was an inedible lump, and a strange sponge-like consistency. Chips were good though!

Thank you Lesley for your feedback following your visit. I am really pleased to hear that your family's steaks were delicious, but saddened to hear that your lasagne wasn't to your taste (and I am obviously disappointed that this has resulted in only a three star review!). Our homemade lasagne is a very popular dish and having been on the...

As ever we had a lovely meal at the Pytchley last weekend. We have been now and with only one exception the service has always been very good. Attentive and friendly. The menu is extensive although not particularly adventurous it serves just what you want. Well cooked pub/ restaurant food and plenty of it.

Thank you TipsyDog for your review. We are really pleased to hear that you have found our service to be good and hope that you continue to visit us at The Pytchley. I think your comments about our menu are very fair - we don't aim to follow trends and fashions with our food offer, but aim to deliver quality,...

I was taken here for lunch by a work colleague as he had been here numerous times before and we were in the area. He advised that it was a nice place to eat and he wasn't wrong!

What a lovely review Whackerv23 - thank you so much for taking the time to post it. We are always really delighted to welcome new visitors to The Pytchley - especially when they come on recommendation from a friend (word of mouth is the best possible advertising!).

Thank you for your comments Louise S. You're right to point out that we are fortunate to be busy from Monday through to Sunday - a great situation in which to be in a trade that sometimes finds village pubs struggling to fill tables in the early part of the week. I am sorry to hear that you felt a...

I don't normally post on these sites but after seeing the review prior to this thought that I must. We stopped the night prior to attending a funeral. The wake was also held at The Pychley.

Good grief EmmaL...I honestly do question whether this review is genuine as your comments are totally at odds with all the positive feedback we get about the warm welcome and professional service of our staff - who are anything but miserable!
