We say…

The Orchard Restaurant is housed within the 4 star Yew Lodge Hotel in the quant village of Kegworth in Derbyshire. With a talented and passionate kitchen team the restaurant is thriving and has just recently secured their second AA rosette. Making the most of this success, the restaurant welcomes diners with beautifully executed modern British cuisine which is continually evolving. The team at the Orchard Restaurant research and develop many fine dishes that you will not find in any other competing restaurant.

A bright and airy dining space welcomes diners and it is not just the restaurant itself that sports an immaculate appearance. All waiters and waitresses are smartly dressed for the occasion and restaurant manager Mustafa, or ‘Muzy’ as he is affectionately known, is sure to cater for your every need. Whether you are looking for an intimate meeting place, hosting a party or looking for a tailored dining experience the Orchard Restaurant is a memorable venue.

Whether you are dropping in for a sophisticated lunch or a luxurious evening meal, the a la carte menu is sure to delight. Concentrating on the best of locally sourced ingredients, signature dishes include baked plaice fillet with oxtail, salsify and leek; and honey glazed Gressingham duck breast served with pumpkin, leek, carrot, quail’s egg and potatoes. The Sunday lunch menu is equally as impressive with a selection of classic roasts available. Children are also catered for with a cleverly constructed and well-thought out child’s menu designed to keep them eating healthily.

The Orchard Restaurant is the ideal location if you are looking for a semi-formal dining experience. The service, décor and food is immaculate and will have you returning time and time again with friends and family.

  • Overall:

    Decided to visit the orchard for our 3rd wedding anniversary and were glad to have done so. We had champagne waiting on the table on arrival and were shown to our seats promptly. The food quality was well deserving of the double AA rossette standard and fairly cheap too. Shoulder of lamb was cooked just right and has some lovely accompaniments with it. My wife had baked cod and rissotto which was received very well and desserts were smashing. A very light and tasty creme brulee and a blackberry and apple crumble were also eaten very swiftly and we then moved onto a wonderful dessert wine. The staff were very attentive and were making sure everything was going how we wanted.
