The setting is good, although it is a little way out from Nottingham, Leicester & Derby. Food is varied and cooked and presented well. We asked for two wines and neither were available which seemed a little strange. Service was fine and not overly expensive.

It has been a while since I visited the Crewe & Harpur, and only previously for a drink. We decided not to cook at home and took a short drive across the ancient Swarkstone Bridge instead. Parking was plentiful and we were greeted on arrival by a friendly member of staff and shown to our table. The menu was extensive...

We had a great meal this evening from the two for £10 menu plus a pudding each. Everything was brilliant, well cooked and good portion size. We were served by Adrian who was very friendly and had great knowledge of the beers, he also introduced us to the tap in screen. We will be back again very soon 🍺🍷

Visited twice recently. Accommodation is good standard and good value. Only downside is lack of noise insulation on windows as it's on a busy road. It's a Marston's Inn but I found the food choice limited and service poor.

Sorry to hear your disappointment. Our new specials selection will hopefully provide more choice. We are working hard to improve staff levels on busy days.

Not been here since it changed. I was glad I did. Bit of a last minute choice on the way home from Coalville. I decided to treat myself to a 3 coarse meal!!!! Oh Camembert then ribeye steak followed by a red velvet cheesecake that I really shouldn't have had but oh my!!!!!! It's good. Everything was fabulous. Service wise...

Shown to our table and drinks order taken straight away, after looking over the menus which included a light bites and sandwich menu, 2 for £10 and a rotisserie menu where you can choose what sauce,...
