Country Pubs

The local pub is still an important feature of Rutland village life, which means you are never far away from a great place to eat. For traditional culinary experience offering personal service, home cooked meals and real ales, a more authentic English experience will be hard to find.

Many of these are part of the Rutland Campaign for Real Ale [CAMRA] so you can be assured of a ‘proper’ pint!
