We say…

The Marquess of Exeter restaurant can be found between Uppingham and Corby in the picturesque Rutland countryside. This fine dining establishment attracts visitors from all over the country, and is handily situated close to the A6003 road leading north and south, while being nestled in the village of Lyddington, a perfectly traditional place whose character and history reflects that of the restaurant.

The restaurant itself is beautiful, too, with beamed ceilings and original brick walls giving it a charming rustic kind of feel, yet with sophisticated, Scandinavian-inspired furniture with an English heritage twist giving it a chic and elegant atmosphere. You can sink into the vintage leather dining chairs and enjoy a catch-up with friends, a romantic date night, or even a lively celebration, as the staff are always happy to make your night one to remember.

It’s no wonder that the Marquess of Exeter is considered one of the best restaurants for miles around, as head chef and proprietor Brian Baker has created sophisticated, unique and contemporary dishes whilst keeping them tasty, and is inspired when recreating classic British cuisine to suit this high-class restaurant. The produce is sourced locally, with menus changed to reflect the season’s best offerings. The a la carte dinner menu offers items like chargrilled smoked salmon with roasted red peppers to start, which you can follow with a roasted breast of local chicken with a Caesar salad. If you’re in the mood for a steak, then you won’t be disappointed by the quality meats on offer here – try the 8oz sirloin steak with ‘café de Paris’ butter, French fries and a fresh green salad. The Sunday menu is extensive, and is always popular with diners wishing to enjoy the day with great food and attentive service, we recommend the expertly cooked fish and chips with a spicy tartar sauce, as well as the roast ribs of Derbyshire beef with all the traditional Sunday trimmings. 

The high quality of the food at The Marquess of Exeter really speaks for itself, with diners returning again and again to try more of the delicious menu. If you’re in Rutland, don’t hesitate to stop by and see for yourself.
