We had a lovely evening at the Pytchley for a family birthday. The steaks were delicious, piping hot and a good size. Sadly, my lasagne was an inedible lump, and a strange sponge-like consistency. Chips were good though!

Thank you Lesley for your feedback following your visit. I am really pleased to hear that your family's steaks were delicious, but saddened to hear that your lasagne wasn't to your taste (and I am obviously disappointed that this has resulted in only a three star review!). Our homemade lasagne is a very popular dish and having been on the... More

As ever we had a lovely meal at the Pytchley last weekend. We have been now and with only one exception the service has always been very good. Attentive and friendly. The menu is extensive although not particularly adventurous it serves just what you want. Well cooked pub/ restaurant food and plenty of it.

I was taken here for lunch by a work colleague as he had been here numerous times before and we were in the area. He advised that it was a nice place to eat and he wasn't wrong!

Booked here to take my partners parents out but unfortunately they were ill, so we decided to still go as we had booked a table.

Thank you for your comments Louise S. You're right to point out that we are fortunate to be busy from Monday through to Sunday - a great situation in which to be in a trade that sometimes finds village pubs struggling to fill tables in the early part of the week.

I don't normally post on these sites but after seeing the review prior to this thought that I must. We stopped the night prior to attending a funeral. The wake was also held at The Pychley.

We've stayed here 3 times in the last 12 months, and each time we've been very happy with the overall experience. The rooms were all good. The staff are both friendly and efficient.

Great meal and great service. The staff allocated us a side room that gave us the perfect space to relax with our children and celebrate my daughters birthday. The service was spot on which is rare with such a large group (15). We will definitely go again !!
