About our venue

Named The Yews after the ancient trees standing in the car park this popular dining venue was built in 1750. Great Glen, where we are situated, is a small affluent village surrounded by countryside in a peaceful location. There is access to local walks which are well used by ramblers and people just out for a stroll. The outside appearance resembles a small manor house with four rooms inside offering two open fires which create a very comfortable environment. There is a relaxed, pleasant and friendly atmosphere enhanced by our professional staff who are here to make sure you have a superb experience. Being part of the Chef & Brewer chain you will find it hard to beat the quality of our traditional pub food. This is all prepared from fresh ingredients and cooked to order by Chefs who pride themselves in their work. They are given a free hand to deviate from the main menu, offering a delicious selection of additional Specials, especially fresh fish dishes. Meals can be accompanied by a choice wine from the wine list or a real ale if preferred. Having Cask Marque accreditation this will be served to perfection! In the evenings dining by candle light is popular as are al fresco family meals during the summer. We can boast that our enclosed landscaped garden is well kept and the largest pub garden in Leicestershire, with seating for approximately 250 people. Come and enjoy it with friends in the near future. Whatever time of year The Yews is an inviting venue to try.
