East Langton lies in the Leicestershire countryside and is a picturesque village. Not far from the A6, this pub is a real find. It serves up to three ales. All are kept very well and taste great.
The pub has its own car park or you can walk to it up the path at the front. From the outside it looks new-ish, but the inside has that olde worlde feel with two main rooms - though the single bar really only serves the room to the left of the front entrance - the other room is really for food only. It gets pretty well booked here most weekends, so book well in advance. There are bar snacks of baguettes and sandwiches but the main food is pretty traditional with fish, steak and a nice vegetarian option, though the prices £11-£18 are a little steep for what is after all pub food (check out the cheaper senior citizen days). Food is served Monday to Saturday 12.00 to 2.30 and 6.30 to 9.30 and Sunday 12.00 to 3.00.
You cant fault the beer or the atmosphere.
The low beamed ceiling catches out the tall people as the floor is uneven in places. Seating is in low cut booths and 'kitchen' tables and chairs. There are some pews with added cushion support and an alcove or two for those secluded moments.
There is accommodation here in an annex accessed via the car park. All rooms are en-suite and are well appointed. The Bell is well placed for Rutland Water and Foxton Locks.
