On the banks of the River Soar, The Otter in Kegworth is a fine sight, with its old world-style white and cream timber design. Boasting well-loved British pub cuisine, to be enjoyed from the cosy log-fire or outside in the al fresco garden, it has great countryside views. With stylish art adorning the walls and colourful cushions and curtains, The Otter has a warm and homely feel.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Otter menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Otter ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In the peaceful country village of Kegworth, The Otter is merely 8 minutes’ from Loughborough.

    Excellent meal but booking request for a table near the disabled toilet in view of elderly guests totally ignored, and we were located a table at the other side of the restaurant, furthest possible distance from disabled toilet .

  • (**** 19 October 2016 by Vicky Stevenson from Leicestershire

    The food was terrible. We had sunday dinner for 6 people. The roast potatoes and parsnips were under cooked and the food very bland.
    The floor was not clean and vegetables were not brought to the table until i asked for them.
    The only positive was that the waitress was friendly

    Very nice meal for myself, my wife and daughter. Melanie served us throughout and she was delightful.
