When the website says 6-8pm why are we told at 07.40..."sorry we've stopped serving"? No reason given....still we then found the Ruddington Arms in Ruddington, now that was customer service and great food. Won't be going back to the Radcliffe!

We were driving around looking for somewhere to eat and came across this pub in Bunny Nottingham. Went in and both had their Steak and Mushroom Pie with seasonal vegetables, it was excellent. Would certainly recommend together with their carvery.

On this visit at the end of January 2017, the staff at the Rancliffe Arms did not really seem to care too much about our potential lunch or dinner booking for 16-20 covers at the end of March. Why should they care, but, then, why should we go there? Anyway, the pub was fairly highly populated with septuagenarians and, I... More

We are not the biggest fans of carveries but we make an exception for the carvery at The Rancliffe Arms. Proper food and so much choice. The carvery is a little more expensive than at some other places but well worth paying a bit extra for good quality food. This place gets very busy on a Sunday so be sure... More

My favourite place in Nottingham! The food is amazing, plenty of it, excellent value and so much to choose from. Roast beef a winner. This is always on our places to go whenever we are back in Notts.
