Brewer's Fayre restaurants offer a warm welcome to those who want a reliably tasty meal in pleasant surroundings, with plenty of choice, minimal fuss and friendly service. With a reputation going back 25 years they should have a fair chance of doing that, but don't take our word for it. Give them a try and see if you agree that this is how good quality pub food should be served.
Whether it's snacks, grills, pub classics, fish, Sunday roasts or side dishes they think their way through the options, talk to their guests, and then come up with the goods. Not everybody wants a full meal so they've considered the needs of those who want to keep the gap filled and the children contented, perhaps on a journey or a day out.
Hot filled baguettes are always popular be it sausage and red onion or a classic chicken club sandwich. Jacket potatoes are good on their own but filled with mature cheddar cheese and beans they take on a new dimension.
More paced occasions demand a wide menu, perhaps with starters of breaded butterfly prawns, chicken goujons or breaded camembert bites. Grills are there for the hungry and whole rack of meaty BBQ pork ribs served with extra sauce, chips and coleslaw can be very welcome. The days of the mixed grill are back - or did they ever go away - a 4oz rump steak, two pork sausages, and a gammon steak topped with a fried egg served with all the trimmings will remind you if they did.
Salmon and prawn fishcakes are served with buttered new potatoes, tartare sauce and a lightly dressed salad. A combination of sea and land comes with a rump steak, whole grilled chicken breast and breaded breaded butterfly prawns, served with chips and a side salad or garden peas.
The rise of eating out in pubs has brought into our daily lives a whole legion of what might be termed 'pub classics'. Many of them have their roots in what used to be called 'good home cooking' and include such dishes as sausage, egg and chips, beef and ale pie, chicken and mushroom pie and for the very daring a beef lasagne. Well, all of them and many more are on the menu at Brewer's Fayre, supplemented by such new regulars as vegetable Goan chicken curry, pork chop, chilli con carne and grilled chicken and bacon salad.
It has often been said that chicken tikka masala is now the most popular dish in Britain. Some may not really want to believe that, much as they love curry, but travel, population movement and other factors have widened our scope and they are probably pretty keen on fish and chips in Timbuktu.
What is certain is that the great British Sunday roast is exclusive to these islands, though copied maybe elsewhere or in ex-pat outposts. No surprise therefore that it's on the Brewer's Fayre menu. A trade of three roasts with an opportunity to trade up to a mega roast for a modest sum. With it come two Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, fresh seasonal vegetables and that important element - gravy.
A fine list of immensely tempting desserts may well bring the most ardent weight-watcher to their knees. A short but well thought out wine list offers all choices, except champagne, by the glass. Staying the night - check to see if there's a Premier Inn next door - chances are you'll be lucky.
A quick click on their Website is always worth while. The only thing that stays still permanently is the quality which is helped by a changing menu, and some very special offers.
Sketchley Grange Hotel, Sketchley Lane, Burbage, Hinckley, LE10 3HU [Map]
Demonstrating that old world elegance and modernity can mix together remarkably well, the Sketchley Grange Hotel warmly welcomes guests to enjoy peaceful open country views, extensive facilities, and tasty British and modern European cuisine in its two AA rosette Willow Restaurant.
Situated usefully close to the M69, the hotel is a welcome watering hole to those motoring through the wastes of Midland motorways. The inspiring menu adds to the feelings of comfort, and on a summer's evening a stroll in the carefully tended gardens could gently massage the appetite.
The à la carte opens with starters of pressed marinated sea trout and Cornish crab with an avocado coriander ice cream. Main courses embrace lemon tea smoked new season lamb with broad bean puree, stuffed lamb kidneys, and a sweet sherry jus while puddings include glazed mango and coconut tarts, and a selection of English cheeses with dried fruit chutney, a sage and homemade oat cakes. The Willow Sunday lunch is a popular event.
The wine list is well traveled and offers great value.

Watling Street, Hinckley, LE10 3JA [Map]
Barnacles Restaurant in Watling Street, Hinckley is surrounded by pretty grounds and a beautiful lake and is a good place to visit, particularly if you're very fond of fish. The brick wall exterior seems imposing but that doesn't deter the patrons of this delightful restaurant which has been serving delicious and fresh fish and seafood dishes since 1993.
There is an extensive selection of both fish and shellfish, so you could choose from dishes such as simply grilled lemon sole with vegetables or more creative ones like the popular fruits de mer, a platter of hot shellfish in chilli and garlic butter. Of course if your preferences don't run to fish then you can try something from the equally tempting meat or vegetarian menu and end finally with a caramelised citrus tart with raspberry sorbet. There's also an eclectic selection of wines to be found on the wine list, which span the countries of the Old and the New World.

38 Coventry Road, Hinckley, LE10 0JT [Map]
Located in Hinckley, Leicestershire, Rossini is a family run restaurant offering traditional and contemporary Italian cuisine. The venue offers a sophisticated dining experience in a relaxed, laid-back and friendly ambience. The interior features warm lighting, dark wood tables with leather chairs and bright colours where Sardinian born owner and head chef, Nico Sini, creates menus that offer authentic Italian food with a modern twist.
Mussels in a rich tomato sauce finished with a touch of chilli and white wine, and hot octopus and potato stew cooked with the chef's secret family recipe are perfect choices to start your meal. Tagliatelle pasta with smoked ham, julienne of courgette, finished with brandy and cream; and chicken breast with roasted peppers and aubergines oven baked and topped with melted cheese and a tomato jous are a few of the delectable specialities that feature on their extensive menu.
