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

Once again, Julien, Andy and all the staff at our local hostelry did us proud with a wonderful buffet to celebrate an 82nd Birthday Party for Father/Father in law, as well as three other family members with Birthdays in November and mine too on the day! The food was excellent and plentiful and you all made it a great afternoon/evening... 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

Love this pub, but popped in for breakfast with my son in Wednesday morning at 9.45am and the young girl on duty was thoroughly unpleasant. Asked for breakfast, and she said, don't do breakfast. I responded, that we'd had one the week before, she still seemed reluctant, I made her insist on checking with the kitchen. Surprisingly she returned saying... More
