    At the main Car Park at Rutland Water by the Giant Cycle Store a 15 minute cycle ride up the track there is a excellent Italian Restaurant overlooking the Lake that has been highly recommended, also at Edith Weston there is the Wheatshief Pub that does meals, but I think only certain hours.

    Just down the road 5min walk there is a Garden Centre that has a nice litte Caffe in it. Had good reports this week about the food at the Golf Club.
