The historic Hatton Arms is located in the pretty village of Gretton on the border of Northamptonshire and Rutland. This charming country inn is a perfect picture postcard with its mellow stone walls, thatched roof and attractive window boxes. Steeped in history, it is believed to be the second oldest pub in Northamptonshire with parts dating back to the 14th-century. Following major refurbishment in 2004, the beautiful interior retains many original character features such as beamed ceilings, stone flags, open stonework, inglenook fireplace and a wealth of fascinating old photographs and memorabilia. There is also an attractive terrace area with wonderful views over the spectacular Welland Valley, a lovely spot to unwind with a drink in the warmer months. Popular with locals and visitors alike, hosts Julie and Neil Smith extend a warm welcome to enjoy the best of modern British cuisine and hospitality in a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.
The Hatton restaurant has deservedly gained a reputation for its excellent home cooked food using fresh, locally sourced produce whenever possible. Dietary requirements are also catered for and many dishes across the menus are available gluten free (GF) and vegetarian (V). Other dishes can be adapted for gluten free (gf*) on request. The friendly and knowledgeable staff are more than happy to answer any questions regarding food preparation and ingredients and advise on menu choice. Open daily, the lunch menu offers a variety of sandwiches and traditional pub favourites. Evening meals include a tempting choice of starters (e.g. Pork & Pistachio Terrine, Smoked Salmon & Prawn Marie Rose), delicious mains (Pan Fried Halloumi, Fillet of Seabass, Sirloin Steak) and a selection of irresistible desserts. The roast Sunday Lunch (available as 1, 2 or 3 courses) is a delight not to be missed! In addition the excellent drinks list includes real ales and fine wines to complement your memorable dining experience at The Hatton Arms.
