Recommended in The Michelin Guide for a 6th straight year, The Boot Room is an independent Leicester restaurant inside a beautifully converted shoe factory, filled with original features and with a modern British menu.

The Boot Room menu uses only the freshest seasonal ingredients for its modern takes on wholesome British recipes. Seared pigeon breast with roasted artichoke and raspberry vinaigrette is a popular starter, while hearty mains include 8-hour braised lamb shank with minted butterbean and vegetable cassoulet. There are fresh seafood delicacies like roasted salmon fillet with prawns and lobster bisque and fondant potato, and a grill selection of succulent steaks.

To finish, desserts at The Boot Room Leicester feature specialities like soufflé of the day, and rich indulgences like chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream and butterscotch sauce. There is a superb wine selection, as well as fine champagnes.

Also offering dedicated gluten-free menus, The Boot Room is a wonderfully versatile eatery, and sits 12 minutes' walk from Leicester Train Station.

    Four of us for a birthday outing on CBA Tuesday. We appreciate that it's a budget menu but, very much unlike previous visits, we found the food ordinary at best and the dessert (supposedly Tarte Tatin) was a disaster. Partially redeemed by nice, informal service from our two young waiters but very disappointed otherwise.

    On entering the restaurant, the staff were friendly. The food was lovely and the service was excellent. When it came to the deserts my wife was really looking forward to the chocolate fondant, only to find a rather large hair in the fondant. The staff were quick to replace the desert with a creme brulee which was very nice.

    The service and the food were very good. It was a friends birthday and we requested a desert with a candle for her which was provided by the waiter without us having to prompt him which was very nice.

    Dining experience, could have been better. Only a piece each of bread ??......hhhhmmm
    Would be better to have a basket and at least 2 pieces per person!!!
    Not happy where we were sorted as the bar was right in front of us hence people congregating and high level of noice.

    Nice relaxed surroundings with live music but unfortunately the guy playing the saxophone only played sporadically so not a great impression.
