Regular customer here and never been disappointed. Food is excellent - always beautifully presented. Staff very good. Would recommend the Cradock. Only negative is lack of car parking due to popularity of the place!

Another very good meal at The Cradock Arms. Welsh Rarebit every bit as good as the last time we were there. My wife's Mushroom Wellington was as good as last time and my Sirloin steak was the best steak I have had for a long time and was cooked to perfection. 2 courses and 2 rounds of drinks for just over £50 for this quality is very good value

Lovely meal, didn't have to wait long for our food once ordered and all the meals were delicious. We all had roasts and the vegetables in particular were scrummy, so many serve them over cooked and spoilt. Didn't all have room for puddings but the ones that were ordered were to die for...... Staff were very friendly, lovely atmosphere there today, nothing was too much trouble for the staff, highly recommend you visit😀

Went there with our family including 3 children. The service was very friendly and efficient and the food lovely. The only thing which could have made the experience even better would have been for the venue to provide something a little extra for the children, eg colouring pages and crayons. This would have lifted the experience from super to superb!

Excellent meal served in a friendly manner. A relaxed atmosphere just right when there are two little boys in the party. Serving was expeditious but you didn't feel rushed. The Cradock is our first choice for a family Sunday Lunch.

Not a comment on the food, but my friend and i were sandwiched at a small table for two between two much larger tables with very little space between. It just felt cramped and uncomfortable which impacted on our enjoyment of our meal. A shame, because all else - food and service - were great.

Never disappointed with the food here and we have been many times. The beer is well looked after too - both Everards and guest ales, as well as good selection of lagers. Highly recommended!

First visit after moving to Oadby. Everything was good. The cream with the bread and butter pudding was inadequate. There was a bit of the previous diner's lunch on my chair. However overall we enjoyed our meal.

Unfortunately we thought the service was below par. We sat down 15 mins late(our fault) , but waited 20 mins before we saw a menu. Another 25 mins to the starters then a massive 30 mins for our mains. Had to request coffee twice. Food good as always but let down by below average service.

Good food as always, nice staff and pints. I would say that it's a bit annoying that you cannot get waitress service in the garden but it's a minor drawback

Great pub, great food. The only downer is serving food on slate instead of normal plates. The sound of the knife cutting food is like nails down a blackboard. Awful.

We normally go on weekdays & I would give them 6 for the quality of those meals, however the Sunday dinners are not quite as good. Still good though.

Very nice food, I would say the mayonnaise in the jar is very unhygienic, a bottle would be much preferred. Nice servers and I would definitely come again
