My wife and I had been walking nearby at Belton House, on a foggy Monday morning. We arrived at The Staunton Arms looking forward to a warming lunch. Log fire, very welcoming staff were a good start. My starter of Cod and Prawn fishcake, pea veloute, poached egg and pea shoots was one of the most delicious things I have... More

The Staunton Arms has had a chequered story over the past 15 years or so, but now it is the best it has been in a long time. Birthday dinner for my son this evening, and the place was really busy on arrival. It is truly tucked away but its reputation is drawing people in. Half the area is attractive... More

I have to concur with most of the reviewers on here that this place is outstanding. We've been a couple of times before and the service alone puts it in a league of its own: friendly, discreet, very accommodating to individual requests and utterly professional. The food is superb and my liver parfait was the best I have ever had... More

We took up the Travelzoo offer for lunch with a G & T for two at £35. Staunton is a tiny hamlet well outside Newark and there would be little passing trade. As such, we did worry beforehand that a weekday lunchtime would be too quiet. However arriving at 12.30am, the car park was already filling up. Going inside, we... More

We booked a stay at the Staunton arms as its reviews were generally very good, I can confirm they are justified. Its position is very rural,lovely and quiet with fields surrounding two sides. The pub has a very traditional look with wooden floors,beamed ceilings and an open fire. We were politely greeted and taken to our room. It had a... More

It was a shame because we had high hopes based on previous reviews and because we hadn't been here for some time. A nice pub and welcoming landlord. The menu quite extensive with standard items and specials. But I can't decide whether it is because the chef is trying too hard or not trying enough, but the food was rather... More
