Set back from the road in the pretty Rutland village of Stretton stands the thatched Jackson Stops.
Country hostelry through and through, this early 18th-century pub is run by head chef Robert Knowles, who has an excellent pedigree in the industry.
The interior of the Jackson Stops matches its idyllic exterior, with a traditional, unpretentious front bar serving local ales from the likes of The Grainstore Brewery and Oakham Ales. Beyond are four dining areas, complete with quarry tiles, wooden beams and exposed stone walls. All are great places to eat, unfussily but classily decorated.
This is a beautiful and welcoming country pub serving good food. “Our aim is to produce high quality food and serve fine ales in a warm, friendly atmosphere,” says proprietor Robert.
