Wentworth Arms

Pevsner's Leicestershire & Rutland (with Elizabeth Williamson, 1984) says:

Elmesthorpe. WENTWORTH ARMS, at the S end of the village. Built in 1895 by CFA Voysey for Lord Lovelace of Kirkby Mallory. Small. Red brick and not particularly attractive. One storey, plus dormers in a big hipped Swithland slate roof. Big chimneys, one with a dormer pressed up against it. Along the front a long bay to the main bar room linked by a veranda across the recessed entrance to an ugly flat-roofed bay projecting diagonally at the corner. Typical long bands of small-paned windows to the bays and dormers. Original fittings (fireplaces with green tiles and door hinges) removed.
