As an ardent supporter of local producers, suppliers and growers, Rutland is rightfully proud of its agricultural heritage. This passion extends to the chefs of the restaurants in Rutland, many of which champion local produce and make it the focal point of their menus.

For all out glamour, and a special night to remember, you could book a table at one of the stunning fine-dining restaurants in Hambleton; one of which is the magnificent Hambleton Hall restaurant.

Not to mention dining of the highest calibre with immaculate and professional service.

The Finch’s Arms, nesting in the middle of Rutland water, offers something a little more low-key yet equally worth a visit. The menu is changed according to the seasons, and content is dictated almost daily by the availability of local produce. A haven for food-lovers, the fresh food with its focus on ingredients can be enjoyed in either the rustic bar or the more formal restaurant. The edge of Rutland Water is only five minutes away and is surrounded by beautiful forestry land that is filled with scenic rambling trails.
