Serving as an inn since the 18th century, The Packe Arms takes its name from a prestigious Victorian family. This sense of class still remains, through the accomplished menu of classic British dishes, the attractive gardens for al fresco dining and stone tiles. With fantastic views over the picturesque village of Hoton and surrounding countryside, the seasonal food can be enjoyed in summer or winter, in the garden or by the fireplace.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Packe Arms 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 Packe Arms ‘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.

The Packe Arms, in Hoton, is just 4 minutes’ drive from Loughborough.

    Very disappointed. Pizza was all base hardly any protein on top. Wag you burger burnt and only one onion ring as vegetable. This was returned to kitchen.
    Two other meals were very good.

    The Packe Arms is a comfortable restaurant, although the downlights are too bright. The service was very good, the waitresses were polite and efficient. I had mushrooms for a starter, which were acceptable. Had the duck supper for the main course, this was mainly skin and not much meat, the potatoes seemed to be half boiled and thus not cooked enough. Had a brownie with ice cream for pudding which was nice. Had gin and tonics to drink, £4 for 2 small bottles of tonic is verging on extortion.

    All out of the wine I selected, all out of the tartare sauce for the fish dishes, fish came barely cooked inside and was sent back in exchange for scampi instead (hopefully easier to cook properly). Ended up overcharged as we'd changed from fish to scampi, but the bill wasn't changed. Not a good start to the new year and a big disappointment for Mum who we'd taken so we could celebrate the new year together. Hopefully just a blip as we love the ambience of this lovely old pub with its nooks and crannies and cosy fire burning in the grate.

    We had a last-minute booking for Sunday lunch with a party of 5 family members, which included 2 teenagers. We found that the choice and quality of the food was very good (we had 2 vegetarians in the party who also commented on the good choice). The waiters were excellent and although it was a cold day the room soon warmed up (I turned the radiator up myself as it was cold when we sat down!)

    Sorry to say we were disappointed,we joined our friends to celebrate their golden anniversary which was enjoyed by us all and as it was our 45th we booked in for lunch.The staff were pleasant,we were cold when seated but was sure we would warm up when eating.starter lovely,main meal arrived wrong so we mentioned it to our waitress,she apologised and bought a tea plate with slices of meat on,we had ordered the mixed platter but ended up with beef,turkey and gammon,no trimmings.we thought the quality of roast potatoes was very poor( some we couldn't get our forks into) vegetables were O K but soggy.pudding lovely but our special day was unfortunately spoilt.
