I am so often left disappointed with that feeling you have over paid for a meal you could have prepared better at home.. Not so The Finches Arms: Food was quite simply superb! Priced well. Curtious attentive service without being intrusive. Thank you - looking forward to returning!

Superb food, beautiful venue and great staff. The menu choices are very varied so most people can find a few choices that they like. A really great lunch in a great setting.

A sunny early lunch at the Finch's Arms was an enjoyable way to complete a morning of successful shoe shopping in Oakham - success being rated as only having to sit in the car for 20 minutes! We sat in the garden with beautiful views over the countryside and had a bitter shandy and a Warner Edwards gin and tonic whilst ordering lunch. We decided on the very good value fixed price menu (£13.50 for two courses and £16.50 for three). The soup of the day was roasted tomatoe with crusty bread and my wife chose the goats cheese salad - both were excellent. My main course of poacher cheese and red onion tart was substantial and very tasty and my wife was very enthusiastic about her grilled sea bream with samphire and a broccoli side dish. A large glass of prosecco and an interesting Pinot Gris in the rose list by the glass were both ideal. Two coffees and the bill came to less than £60 which was rounded up to £70 because of the very attentive service by all staff. Thoroughly recommended when visiting Rutland Water or Oakham. Booking is recommended as the restaurant was full.

Our table, booked online, was ready, and the staff knew we were coming. We were welcomed, and offered drinks and the day's menu. I chose chicken liver parfait as a starter, and my wife chose the tomato soup. Best chicken liver parfait I've had in a long time, and my wife said the tomato soup was as good as she has ever tasted. We both had grilled salmon which was perfectly cooked and delicious. Green beans and new potatoes were properly cooked i.e. al dente, and provided a good match for the salmon. A bottle of excellent Sauvignon Blanc and a bottle of chilled tap water accompanied the meal, and I finished with a double expresso. I can not fault the meal or the service. Only one down-side - the plates for the main course, although properly hot, were shaped like inverted UFOs with a central pit surrounded by an outward-sloping periphery - why? Nine out of ten for this excellent meal - change the plates for normal ones and I'll change that to ten out of ten. We will be back.

This as our second visit. We stayed over the last time we came, which was feb last year. It was a fantastic night and the food was some of the best iv ever had at a pub. This time was no different. The staff were friendly. The atmosphere was lovely. And the food was again very tasty. My wife had a chicken on the bone inspired salad. Everything was well cooked and the portion size was plenty for her. I had sausage and mash with onion gravy. The sausages were very tasty the mash was creamy smooth and well seasoned my wife had fries and I had green beans as sides. Again they were both very tasty. The only slight gripe I had would be the length of time it took to first take our order and subsequently get the staffs attention when we needed something. And when getting the bill. No one came to take payment. So we ended up having to go to the bar to settle up. All in all though a very pleasant visit and would highly recommend the finches arms for both food drink and it's hotel accommodation.

It was my first visit to the FA , I was with my usband and a friend and we all enjoyed it. I do have to add that whilst there my friend had a 'funny' turn and the staff and some of the customers were so kind and helpful and fortunately she recovered without having to go to hospital. Fortunately one of the customers was a nurse. A big Thank You to everyone at The Finch's Arms Judith Oakley

It was our first visit to The Finch's Arms but we enjoyed it and would return if in the area again. Our evening meals were very good and it sounded as if most of the other diners near us were regular, repeat customers, which is always a good sign. We also stayed one night b&b and enjoyed a good quality full English breakfast. The service was good although they did seem rather understaffed, so credit to those who were on duty. Overall it was an enjoyable visit and we enjoyed our meals.

The Finch's Arms was not the great experience we have had many times in the past. Starters were ordered and when served the server did not know who got what. Soup of the Day, Cream of Parsnip was bland and uninteresting. When the mains arrived, again there was confusion as to who ordered what. Lamb ordered medium rare was served well done. After mains were cleared, we waited forty minutes in the center of the dining room for anyone to ask if we wanted dessert or coffee whilst diners who finished after us were already enjoying their desserts. One senior staff member neither knew the available selection of sorbets nor the cheese on the cheese plate. The staff are friendly but not very professional and seem distracted. A disappointment for Easter Sunday lunch.
