Due to circumstances beyond their control, Sunday lunches could not be served when we visited. However, the staff arranged a booking for our party with another local hostelry and we did not go without a meal. The location nad menu options looked great and we will therefore definitely visit again, once Covid-19 restrictions allow and the chef has his arm out of a sling. We wish ALL at the Coach House Inn, South Luffenham, a wonderful New Year and we will see you soon.

Great experience overall, with no help from OPEN TABLE , DESPITE CONFIRMING OUR BOOKING THEY FAILED TO NOTIFY THE RESTAURANT!! .
Luckily the Gracious Hostess found us a beautiful window table and commented, “This poor communication was a common problem with Open Table.”

I’ll be booking direct in future as Open Table is a high risk ineffective business.

We have been to this pub a number of times over the years & it has been good, but we were really disappointed when we went for dinner the other Friday.
The guy manning the bar was good & working hard, but was busy trying to hold it all together. So since the waitress seemed to be mainly absent, the barman got us drinks/took our order in the restaurant & finally we had to go to the bar to pay.
We had waited 15/20 minutes to order & it took 50 minutes for the food to arrive.
My wife's sausage & mash was pretty poor & not good value - sausages poor quality & mash lumpy
We noticed how only 6 of us were in the restaurant, which I think speaks for itself.
This pub/restaurant seems to lack proper management & staff training.
We wont be going there again - although as I say the barman really did try to rescue things.
Hopefully the owners & management will take note as it would be a pity to lose what was once a good pub & restaurant.

we are very sorry that your experience was not upto our high standards and we will be addressing the service experience immediately. i just dont want there to be a wrong impression given to potential customers that see this as it may be slightly decieving as the bar was full for food so as there may have only been 6/8 in the restaurant there was 25+ eating in the bar as well which unfortunately led to a backlog in the kitchen which affected your meal which we apologise for and should not happen.

Such a shame there weren’t more people in the restaurant - the food was great and we,thoroughly enjoyed it. The lamb tagine was melt in the mouth, and the steak (I was told!) was amazing. Delicious puds too

4 ladies booked in for lunch on 9 Dec. We also booked in for the same time last year and were placed in the dining room and really enjoyed the whole experience. This year we were placed in an uncomfortably crowded bar because a very large party were in the dining room. The bar was very cold and we kept our coats on for most of the mealtime. Our table was placed partially over the front door and everytime someone came in we really felt the draught. This was reported to 2 members of staff who apologised but it’s not good enough. They should look after cunstomers and not take them for granted. We won’t go back there again, even though the food was good.

we arrived on a very quiet evening - not the fault of the Inn - just quiet due to the fantastic weather and no nice area for outside seating possible. We were the only table and the food was fine. Hope they have busier times at the weekends when the restaurant is in use. Good bottle of red wine - recommended by the barman. thanks

Brilliant, absolutely loved the food and service was great too. Will definitely be going back as it’s only about 15 minutes away from us and we never new about it! A new favourite in the area which offers something better than standard pub fare.great selection of beers on tap too. Highly recommended1

We knew there was new management and thought we’d try it out and we weren’t disappointed. Food was very good and at £25 per head for two courses and a bottle of wine, was very good value. We’ll be back!
