Smart pub food in Rutland

Picture the perfect country pub and you’ll likely think of something like The Marquess of Exeter. Situated in the quaint village of Lyddington, close to the Rutland border, The Marquess of Exeter is a quaint country pub in idyllic surroundings. Dining options are always exquisite: smart, tastefully presented plates that put a new spin on traditional pub food. Why not drop by and enjoy top food and freshly roasted Two Chimps coffee today?




Tasty food, from breakfast ‘till dinner

Start the day with something delicious and enjoy breakfast at The Marquess of Exeter. While you’re there, why not browse the ever-changing lunch and dinner menus? There’s always something to tantalise your taste buds. The team craft vibrant, smart plates to give pub grub a classy new look.  Kick off with vegan crumbed schnitzel or a steaming bowl of homemade soup. Then, enjoy a flavour-packed bean chilli or hearty meat-filled (and pint-accompanied) pie. Sunday lunch is something special, and makes a well-earned refuel after a trek around the surrounding fields.




Menus change regularly and always champion locally-rooted ingredients. There are plenty of meat and veggie options for little ones to choose from, and we guess they’ll be rather happy with the ice cream that comes with every kids’ meal…


An old-school pub with modern vibes

The Marquess of Exeter strikes a balance between traditional and cool. Décor is oak-and-brass rustic, yet still light and airy.

The low-ceilinged dining room channels country inn vibes with its wooden beams and log fire. It’s the perfect setting for a special meal with family and friends. Larger parties and corporate events can make the most of the spacious interior, while smaller get-togethers of up to 14 guests might prefer to enjoy their food in the ‘Marquess Snug’.




A stylish place to sleep

The Marquess of Exeter boasts 17 smart rooms, each brimming with elegance and charm. Neat décor sits alongside all the modern amenities and crisp linen sheets (sleep tight!). Perfect for a couples’ retreat to the Midlands, yet equally ideal for a business trip – the pub has great road links to Leicester, Kettering, Corby, Northampton and Derby. The cosy single rooms are perfect for business travellers, while a larger room or superior suite is the answer for your next country break with the family.




Single Origin coffee at The Marquess of Exeter

Alongside a fabulous abundance of wines, real ales, spirits and soft drinks, The Marquess of Exeter now serves freshly ground Two Chimps coffee. Round off your meal in the best way possible with a cup of Pull up a Chair, the moreish medium roast coffee you’ll find behind the bar. The team grind and pour your coffee to order, ensuring barista-standard cups every time. This full-bodied, slightly zesty Guatemalan coffee is just right in the pub’s espresso-based drinks – why not order a cup and try it for yourself?

Don’t worry if decaf is more your thing – The Marquess of Exeter also serve our lovely sparkling water decaffeinated coffee. Take a sip of The Waving Goldfish and enjoy a smooth-tasting coffee that transports you to flavours of fruit crumble…
