    Hi, how near to the Airport are you looking? Do you have kids or is it just adults only? I only live about 20 mins away so I have plenty of recommendations within a short drive from the airport.

    Hi, sorry haven't been to it but I can recommend the Nags Head in Castle Donington (there are reviews on google). It is only about 5 mins away from the airport and the food is very good. If you fancy a curry the Melbourne Arms is very good and Melbourne is only about 10 mins from the airport. You turn right at the main airport drive to get to both recommendations.
    Have a great trip

    The Nags head is good - it has new owners but still does good meals. It's only a small pub just on the right as you enter the village from the direction of the airport and race track.

    If you want to dine somewhere really special there is the Priest House Hotel just outside Castle Donnington village:

    Can't see a site as such for the Nags Head. They are more of a bistro pub than your fun pub type.
    The Priest House is lovely if you want to start your holiday in style.
    There is also a good pub in Kings Newton which is only a short drive away from the airport but I can't remember the name.
    If you want somewhere local for some good British grub I think the Nags is good and it isn't over pricey.
