The Station Hotel, October 1997

Having visited the Cap and Stocking, also in Kegworth but over the border in Leicestershire, and discovering that they don't in fact do meals on a Sunday evening, we had a pint and the barman very kindly drew us a map of how to get to the Station Hotel. I say that it is in Kegworth, but it's really a little past on the way towards Sutton Bonnington. We did find it though with a little help from a local walking his dog. It's next to the old station, closed many years ago, but the hotel still has a noticeable railway feel to it with old steam train nameplates on the bare brick walls. A lovely old Victorian building that dates back to 1847 with a couple of bars inside with open fires, a separate dining room and an à la carte restaurant upstairs.

Lots of real ales on offer to wash down the excellent range of food on offer every day both lunchtimes and evenings. They offer a wide range of tasty dishes including local game in season, all at very reasonable prices. The atmosphere in the dining room was very friendly and the staff were quick and efficient. It's probably worth booking ahead for a table as we arrived at about 8pm and were lucky to get the last table.

The pub also offers great value B&B in its four large bedrooms (2 singles & 2 doubles), again excellent value for money. It'd certainly be a great place to stop off if you're travelling along the M1 as it's within 2 miles of Junction 24. I stayed there during 1998 and found it very comfortable with a good sized breakfast in the morning. There's also a large garden outside with good views of the surrounding countryside.
