The food was lovely and service polite and friendly. It was very quiet but we had a lovely time. Main course was fabulous but would warm rather than hot. Not complaining will definitely be back

We love the Blacksmiths as it’s a very special place for us as we had our wedding meal here. We can’t fault anything, the staff, food, cleanliness and service is excellent!

We were a large birthday party and very well looked after for Sunday lunch. The octopus starter was a particular highlight from some of us and the beef was excellent. Thanks

This is a gem of a pub restaurant that we found only by looking for GF food for one of our party. There is plenty of parking, at the back of the building. Add to this the premises themselves are remarkably airy - well ventilated, bright and spacious feeling. Service was friendly and efficient without being intrusive. Food was delivered promptly to our table, there was a delay for our deserts as a party of 20 came in. However, the delay was so minimal that we would not have noticed had they not apologised for it! The food was excellent. Beautifully cooked and presented - also extremely delicious. I had the Asparagus starter, the poached egg was perfectly cooked - firm with a runny yolk. I had The Beef roast, the meat positively fell apart as I ate, it was so tender. I followed this with the cheese board. Perfect. As a footnote, I will say to fellow Coeliacs - I found the visit totally stress free. I was not handed a 60 page allergen book, then asked 2 minutes later if I’m ready to order. I was not told that they can do me a chicken salad... or a jacket potato. The menu I was given was the same as my family, it had GF marked on there - some were marked can be made GF. I can not recommend The Blacksmiths Arms high enough for Coeliacs and non- Coeliacs alike.

Very very disappointed to be promised a table in the main part of the restaurant when I booked a table for 7 people for a 21st Birthday meal. To find we had on the night been placed in the ' hot' conservatory was a disappoint to say the least. Will think twice about returning

Really great pub/restaurant we visit when possible if visiting son at Loughborough. Customer service is top of the agenda with very helpful and accommodating service . The menu is great and the standard of food fantastic and beautifully served. Service too is very well timed and managed so no long waits . Our only problem has been our sat nav takes us to the other Blacksmith Arms which isn't really that close so not sure why that happens but no matter as we know the way now ! Thanks very much Father's Day lunch was scrummy ! Well done to you all .
