    Food was excellent, service was really good. Our waiter, who was a young lad was very attentive, polite and well spoken. It was vey busy but we did not have to wait long for staters, mains and drinks. Excited about the extension being built, can’t wait to go back.

    My friend and I meet for lunch at the Carrington Arms twice a year. One of us lives in London and the other in Leicester so Mousloe is a central place for us to meet. We are always impressed with the food and the service here. The meat is excellent. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. Our only slight reservation is the choice of desserts. It would be good if there was a choice of hot desserts as well as cold.

    Everything about this place is great. Fantastic modern environment but with the old decor. The staff were brilliant and very attentive. The food experience was exquisite. We chose steak, and was then escorted to the butchers counter to choose our exact size and cut which was a nice touch. The taste and quality of the food was amazing and the atmosphere was relaxed and laidback. Highly recommended and will be visiting again soon.

    A little out of the way but we'll worth the trip. Choose your steak from the excellent butchery and have cooked to your liking delicious If you don't want steak there's a great selection to choose from, my daughter had lamb which very tender. We were there for a birthday celebration but won't need an excuse to go again thank you

    Breakfast - excellent for 2 out of 3 diners. Mine - poached eggs on toast - egg yolks hard and had an underlying taste of vinegar. I tasted both the bacon and the sausage and thought these were well cooked and lovely. No skimmed milk so opted for soya cappuccino which was lovely except it was lukewarm verging on cold. Will try again but will specify runny eggs with less vinegar in the water and maybe take my own milk.

    It was my second visit to the Carrington Arms for breakfast. We had to wait a lot longer for service this time but they were busy. When the breakfast arrived it was worth the wait! There were five of us and all the breakfasts were served together, they were all piping hot and delicious. I don’t know why I’m writing this review, I should keep it a secret 🤫

    Staff good, large grilled prawns to start, 2 were half cooked and still grey. Chef sent waitress to tell us they were fine to eat like that !!! Starters outstanding, steaks were OK, nothing special and came without anything so adding a couple of sides and a sauce added £11 to an already expensive steak. Personally I prefer to have a complete dish offered for a set price. Desserts were again outstanding. Room was nice, breakfast was ok, brioche was very dry, bacon burnt

    The restaurant was very noisy, I wear hearing aids and found it very difficult to hear what the waitress or my wife was saying to me above the noise from the other diners. My wife ordered a salad without chili's but unfortunately when it was served it had chili's mixed in it, we did not send it back as this would mean that we would have ended up eating at different times whilst waiting for her salad to be re made. The rest of the food was of a very high standard as it always is at the Carrington arms. Next time I book I will ask to be seated at a quieter table.

    A wonderful high quality afternoon tea. The table was lovely set in a window with plenty of room. The food was displayed wonderfully and was all lovely and fresh. I loved the warm pulled pork “sausage” rolls. A great variety on offer with tea available when you wanted it. The deserts was delicious and we had to take a few bits home as we were full. A definite recommendation for a special treat.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Carrington Arms. Every member of staff was polite, efficient and helpful (and friendly) and the food was excellent. The only slightly adverse comment would be that there wasn't very much choice for vegetarians... although there WAS a choice, and the restaurant doesn't advertise itself as being particularly vegetarian-friendly. We will certainly be back the next time we are in the area.

    The Carrington Arms is always a great place to visit for dinner and Breakfast. The whole experience from beginning to end is very enjoyable. The food is great and always hot and very well delivered. The meat from the grill is my favourite and the marinated sirloin is very difficult not to order as its so good and cooked exactly as requested.

    Overall good - it was for a friend's birthday, and the staff recognised this as my friend entered and wished him happy birthday. Starters of Camembert Fritters were not hot enough - the cheese had not melted in the middle and we returned it. Dealt with efficiently - but even the replacement was not quite hot enough - but we said no more! I do think bread should be on the table - not additional. Also at dessert - maybe they could have recognised the birthday again - an easy cheap thing to do - iced writing on the plate - like other places do - makes the person feel a bit special?! Overall - it was a nice experience and nice atmosphere. Also very nice to see they had enough staff.

    The Carrington ArmsResponded on September 4, 2022Thank you for your review, I am sorry that your camembert wasn't quite hot enough. I will bring this up with my kitchen team. With the current climate of catastrophic cost increases, we (like many others) cannot afford to give every customer "free bread". I am afraid those days are long gone, except at High Rosette/Michelin Star level. We will gladly decorate birthday plates on request. We hope these couple of issues haven't tainted your evening too badly & that you visit us you again soon.
