About The Ruddington Arms

A country pub with a city attitude, The Ruddington Arms on the outskirts of Nottingham brings a level of sophistication and glamour to the village of Ruddington. Mark Anderson, their head chef, worked under Michel Roux, Terry Laybourne and Terence Conran in Michelin-starred restaurants, before branching out to found this bar and restaurant on Wilford Road, where he has crafted a menu that brings all of his experience to bear, fusing classically British dishes with international influences.

Further Information

The country pub is a national treasure, and The Ruddington Arms is one of the best examples of the genre: a proper, centre-of-the-community institution, with a bar menu that showcases the finest in British cuisine. On Wilford Road in the village of Ruddington on the outskirts of Nottingham, this pub is the brainchild of Mark Anderson, a chef with superlative experiences in some of the finest restaurants in the UK, and his menu is a reflection of the flavours and ingredients that make British food great.

First up in Ruddington is the starters, from which we would recommend the Lincolnshire Poacher and Spinach souffle, or the soup of the day, which is accompanied by fresh-baked bread from the Nottinghamshire-based Welbeck Bakehouse. Mains include British classics like fish and chips and steak and kidney pudding, as well as steaks from the grill. Sunday lunch is a speciality, with roast beef, pork or chicken, served up with all the trimmings. A trip down to The Ruddington Arms on Wilford Road in the Nottingham suburb of Ruddington is always a good idea – and it’s an even better idea to book a table in advance.

Excellent meal as usual. I meet friends at the RA as very conveniently situated between Castle Donington and West Bridgford. We have been going there for a few years now and the food is always good, the staff most helpful as we take 2 ladies of 91 as they have been friends for over 70 years. Normally accessible, just today the car park was being refurbished but we managed with. Bit of help. Friendly, helpful and always a pleasure to visit.

Excellent food and friendly, knowledgable service e.g. in guiding choice of wine. The staff couldn't do enough to help. I had the haddock with poached egg and it was really delicious.

Comfortable dining area. The tomato and pepper soup was great on a chilly post-football match night. Tasty mussels too. The service was nice, especially attentive to kids.

The Ruddington Arms is one of our favourite eating places. The atmosphere is always lively and there is energy and warmth in the air. Mark and Sarah, your hosts, are throughly professional providing everything you may need for an enjoyable occasion be it a family gathering or a quiet meal for two. Food quality is superb and Mark as head chef brings a dish to life - look out for the specials as these are always worth a try. The range of wines is broad with something for all tastes and coupled with the Ruddy Ales and selection of gins you all too likely to be lead astray! Staff are responsive and eager to please. For all the above reasons the RA has become a destination and without a doubt it has brought a new dimension to the village of Ruddington. Try it, for a meal or just a drink with friends, you won't be disappointed. Graham and Jill.

I have been to the Ruddington Arms several times before and as always, it was lovely. I had the baked egg starter with mushrooms and truffle oil, which was really good and the oil was enough to taste but not too overpowering. I iked the spinach in the dish too. The main was the duck special which was really well seasoned with great gravy and granola which I didn't expect to care for but I actually liked the difference in texture. I had cinnamon donuts for desert which are always fabulous. The staff were friendly and the service was quick. On this occasion I brought friends visiting from London here and they were impressed too. I would always reccommend the restaurant, especially if you don't want to go into Nottingham.

A very friendly welcome after a longish drive in wintry weather. Decor clean and modern. (Loved the Belfast sink and quirky taps in the 'Boys Room'!) Good menu, with sufficient choices of meats and fish. Didn't have a starter, but desserts offered plenty of choice. Settled on a two flavoured sorbet. Not you average sorbet, I have to say!! Was it worth the journey? Absolutely! My main of Salt cod was to die for, and looking at the near empty plates of my fellow diners, we were all in agreement. Service was excellent, and although we had to wait a little longer than we would have expected, chef was kind enough to apologise. No great deal breaker this as we all concurred on an excellent meal, nicely served and at a price that wouldn't break the bank. We will certainly return to the Ruddington Arms in the future.

My wife and I come to this restaurant a lot because everything about it is good and it is managed by true professionals at their craft. This Sunday I ordered the Gressingham duck from the 'Specials Board' it was superb. Mark, the chef, excelled himself with the combination of flavours he managed to create on the plate. I followed this with the cheesecake which came with one of the best sorbets I have ever tasted. My wife and I continue to be surprised and delighted with the quality and presentation of the food in this restaurant. Finally, must mention the fantastic staff who work their socks of on busy days, thanks guys and girls. Graham

Food excellence, BUT service was slow for a week day and only about 5 ? tables being used. Also we arrived and when I asked where the toilets were I was told "Oh through there" so I struggled with my mother who couldn't reach the bizarre sink and non named taps. Towards the end of the meal I said this to a member of staff they said "Oh (big word at the Ruddington Arms) there are disabled toilets in a separate place 25 metres away from the main toilets and not signposted at at. The reason I mention this is because my mother was using a walker and clearly disabled. Not friendly, no extra help and even the door with the ramp outside was locked. I had to walk round to ask them to open it.....I'm disabled as well. Food very good, for village pub I thought it on the pricier side BUT excellent selection even if my favourite was on the "specials" board which we were NOT pointed out to us.

Booked for 6 of us for an early tea at 4pm on a Saturday afternoon and on arrival we were the only ones in the restaurant. Whilst I assume she was trying to be friendly/funny the waitress who showed us to the table and took our orders did make some mildly sarcastic comments when we asked questions about the menu and food etc. We are an informal group and enjoy a casual atmosphere but felt this was too early into the staff/customer relationship and others could have found it a bit rude and off putting. It also took three attempts asking her and two other members of staff to get a a jug of tap water. The food on the a la carte menu however was lovely and I'd have no hesitation in going again as this was not my first visit and have not encountered any issues previously.
