The Cap has new owners, who seem determined to improve on previous ones. Food, both hot and cold, is served, in particular the ham cooked in cider. I went in at a lunchtime, it was quiet, but staff were friendly and welcoming. A few guest...More

I stumbled across the "Cap" whilst out walking and what a pleasant find it was. As a man over a certain age, it was like revisiting my early drinking year's as a youngster. I was pleasantly surprised to find a real traditional pub that still...More

A hidden gem in Kegworth. Great pint of Bass from the jug. Just Like pubs used to be. Well worth a visit.
