This friendly, bustling and perennially popular cafe, bar and restaurant in the centre of Uppingham offers good food and drink from a varied menu. An eclectic list offers red Thai chicken curry through to steak, ale and mushroom pie via breast of pheasant with bubble and squeak and roast fillet of hake – and more.
On our visit, a sharing seafood platter was simple, generous and tasty, served with three dips and salad. From a dessert menu of half-a-dozen items, a Grand Marnier crème caramel was shared and was very good – smooth, well-cooked caramel with soft zest infused with Grand Marnier.
Don Paddy’s is popular and fills up at peak times. It’s a good idea to book ahead to be sure of a table.
