The Caunton Beck

The Caunton Beck is a free house and fine dining restaurant in the heart of the lovely village of Caunton, near Newark in Nottinghamshire. Originally a 16th Century hostelry the building is full of rustic charm still retaining some original features.  In the winter, the main bar is warm and welcoming with the flamed fire where you can relax and read the daily papers.  The dining room is what you would expect from a country pub with warm décor and country furnishings. On a sunny day you can relax on the terrace enjoying your meal or your cooling drink under a shady umbrella.

We cater for all ages – from the youngest, to customers who have been regulars for many years.  We welcome dogs of all sizes in our bar areas and in the garden area. We ask that dogs are kept under control at all times.

As well as serving delicious pub food – perfect for breakfast, a pub lunch for work or pleasure, a relaxing Sunday lunch or a celebration dinner we offer you a warm welcome.

We provide different styles of cuisine ranging from Modern European to Asian Influences as well as traditional gastro pub food.  All of our dishes are prepared with fresh ingredients on site and sourced locally with reputable suppliers.

Breakfast is served until 11.30am with a variety of choices from Smoked Salmon and Poached Eggs to a hearty Full English with home- made bread from our local baker and fresh farm produce.

We have a Main Menu, a Specials Menu and a Set Menu each offering a variety of starters, main courses and desserts uniquely created by our talented chefs.  Our menus also contain a wide variety of gluten-free and vegetarian choices.

If you have a lighter appetite or are attending for lunch, there are a huge selection of tasty bar snacks, nibbles and sandwiches.

Our children’s menu offers a nutritious range of dishes at very fair prices making Caunton Beck extremely welcoming to families.
