The Falcon Hotel is a quietly elegant 16th century coaching inn in the heart of Uppingham. As well as the main menu (which can also be taken in the brasserie lounge), there is a lighter bar menu and a special lunch menu. At £9.95 for one course, £13.95 for two and £17.50 for three, this represents good value, with quality to match.
On our visit, crisp-skinned sea bass was perfectly cooked and a simple mushroom and ‘Old Nick’ cheese omelette were just right for a light lunch. A shared chocolate and raisin bread-and-butter pudding with salted caramel ice cream was very good indeed – and surprisingly light.
The hotel has 25 bedrooms and is available for weddings, events and conferences.
