This place has had various owners over the decades and is a great place to meet for a bevvie. There's a beautiful wood-panelled bar at the front of the hotel that's like stepping back in time. The bedrooms have been refurbished and the hotel's looking in better shape than it's been for years.

We stayed at the Falcon Hotel for 3 nights on a dinner bed and breakfast basis. We were warmly welcomed by the attentive staff and shown to our enormous room at the top of the hotel overlooking the market square. For a 3 star hotel all was in order. The room was tastefully decorated and the bed comfortable. The shower...

I had a wonderful lunch here recently - and could not fault a single thing - menu choice, great staff, ambience and very reasonably priced. Can't help thinking that in comparison with the much more famous George Hotel at nearby Stamford, which is also excellent but but a fiar bit busier and more expensive, the Falcon really is something of...

Just enjoyed a very nice single nights stay. Very tasty hot finger canapés to start the dinner dance then a seated hot buffet for 60+ people was very good and quickly served, tables laid and dressed perfectly with lovely heavy white linen. Service from all the staff was great in the private room as was that in the adjacent general...

My myself, my wife & her sister in law went last weekend for lunch on a spying mission because we wanted to book a restaurant for a family meal to celebrate an 80th birthday & the Falcon gets good reviews so to make sure we thought we would try it. The hotel is very old but spotlessly clean & well...

The hotel has been upgraded and extended and is warm and welcoming on a cold February evening. The staff are lovely and attentive. The menu is really good and I think the cooking is reliable. It is perfectly good food however I think it could improve. I did feel a little that my meal had been cooked earlier and heated...

The relaxed atmosphere in comfortable surroundings all added to a most enjoyable lunch. The food was great, and the service friendly, but not 'in your face'.. first rate experience. Would definitely recommend it.

I have visited this hotel twice during January and on both occasions eaten there, once at lunchtime the other in the evening. The food is amazing, very good and the staff excellent; nothing is too much trouble for them. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable place to eat and drink whilst in Uppingham.

Fantastic Sunday lunch on the 22nd Jan. From the welcome to the bill (which was reasonable) the service could not be faulted. The dinning room at the front of the hotel was most pleasing, food was excellent and staff couldn't be more attentive without being obtrusive. We quite often also stop here for coffee as the lounge is so relaxing...

Fantastic 2 night stay over Christmas 2016. The room was amazing, loads of space, comfy bed and the roll top bath was a nice surprise. Looking over the market square with the Christmas lights was special. The breakfast was incredible, especially the Eggs Royale followed by lots of toast which kept on coming!
