Still closed following lockdown and believed to be in search of new owners.

A beautiful old building, reputedly 1384, which attracts the eye in combination with the nearby church when walking into town from the station. Once inside, the preservation and restoration as a pub has been done with taste and discernment, which makes the loud and raucous modern rock music all the more jarring.

On the bar is a row of hand pumps with four Everards beers and Elgoods Black Dog mild, which was in excellent condition. On a quiet Wednesday afternoon - several people in Melton pubs commented that it's the quietest day of the week, except maybe for Thursday - there were getting on for a dozen people in here at lunchtime. The garden looks good, and there was lots to like about the interior of the pub, but I found my thoughts constantly interrupted by the music. Lose it, please.

This one is an old building that has a single room with a stone flagged floor, wooden beams and open fires at either end. Seating is largely benches and wooden tables but at one end on my December visit a table was set out for a Christmas do. I hope they were due to have something better than the JDW offering of pie & mash or burgers!
This is an Everard's tied house and the bar had something like eight hand pumps but with much doubling up. Four beers were available Everard's Tiger, Sleigh Bells & Beacon Hill and Nethergate Old Growler. I went for the Tiger (£3.20)which was in excellent nick. This is a pleasant Olde Worlde pub but somehow I preferred the ordinariness of the sister pub the Crown up the road. It didn't help that on an unusually mild December day the open fires at both ends were being fuelled to the hilt making the place uncomfortably warm, nevertheless it's still well worth a look.

The Anne of Cleves is a nice looking stone built pub,this has not always been a pub,when i visited Melton Mowbray in 1984 this building was not in use has a pub.
Once inside there was a single room which ran the width of the pub,there was a mix of seating types.
This pub is an Everards tied house,there three real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Everards Tiger bitter which was a very nice drink,the other beers were Everards Original and a guest beer,Thwaites Lancaster Bomber.
This was a nice enough pub to end our mainly Rutland crawl in.

Gill Smith left this review about Anne Of Cleves

Lovely old pub with a beautiful beer garden out at the back. Chose Everards Yakima and Castle Rock Elsie Mo from the available beers and got a shock at the price. Both £3.60 a pint. Beer quality was fine. It is an old building dating back to the 1300's and the conversion has not spoiled the atmosphere. Was busy lunchtime when we called.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Anne Of Cleves

Draws in a lot of visitors as it dates circa 12th century, it is equally stunning both inside and out. Also serves well kept ales and serves excellent food. Five ales served on my visit were Castle Rock Preservation, Everards Southgate and Original. I went for the Everards Tiger and Titanic Rule Britannia. Will call again.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Anne Of Cleves

Nice old (possibly very old) building, housing what appears to be an unbranded Everards pub. Slightly oddly, the pub sign shows King Henry VIII rather than the eponymous Anne. Two main rooms, half opened out to form an elongated two-part bar, offering a pretty convincing 'olde England' feel. Separate small dining area to one side. Very pleasant part-patio/part-grassed beer garden at the back. Four real ales available from the six handpumps - Tiger (£2.90), Original, the seasonal Whakatu and Bishop's Tipple as a guest.
