Sometimes you cannot beat some good pub grub and have a nice plate full of nice food! The Springfield is a Vintage Inn and to be honest I have always found Vintage Inns to be nice places to go.
I have been to The Springfield a lot of times, it is usually the go to place after work if we fancy a nice meal without having to get too dressed up. I have personally never had a bad meal here and the service has always been good and friendly.
I have personally never stayed here so can only comment on the restaurant side and don’t really have any faults to mention, the food has always been tasty! The only drawback for me is that it’s not really easy to get to unless you drive, therefore its not really somewhere you could go for a Friday or Saturday night out.
What Did I Have To Eat?
On my latest visit I had a starter and a main, usually id have some form of pudding (the cheese board is nice!) For starter I had a Baked Cornish Brie and Onion Marmalade Brûlée, which was very nice! It came with some celery and baked bread.
For main I had something I have had a few times, although this time they slightly changed the dish. I had Pan Fried Rolled Belly Of Pork. It was very nice, the mash was smooth and had a great taste to it. Along with the mash you got a baked apple, black pudding and glazed seasonal vegetables which were all nice.
Personally I preferred the older version of the dish, however it still tasted very nice!
What Was The Service Like?
We have been to The Springfield Inn in Nottingham a number of times, as it is fairly local to us and has always done nice Sunday dinners. The staff are very friendly and you often feel welcome.
There have been a couple of times that I have been stood for some time be seated. The last time we visited, I did feel the service was a little slow - although this was a busy period.
Overall The Springfield Inn is a decent gastro pub, the food is well priced and does taste very good. It can get a little loud at busy times and is not always the easiest to get to (as you would probably need to drive to it, since its not in the city)
Mid week is naturally going to be quieter but I would recommend their Sunday dinners, they do taste great. Although I would recommend going early as they did run out of beef last time I went.
