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.

    Good food and a nice atmosphere. Pleasant service. One minor issue, was that the time we came here there was cask ale on the pump and I was disappointed that was not on this time

  • ((((* 9 April 2018 by Peter Bailey from Leicester

    Service prompt and efficient, although restaurant not particularly busy so staff not stretched. Table spacing is good so no feeling of being hemmed-in. Menu is modern/traditional and varied, the dishes are well-prepared and nicely presented.

    Excellent food. Impressed those new to the restaurant. Stand out dishes pigeon breast, scallops, duck breast and venison.

    The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. We took our children who are 10 and 12 and they allowed them to choose food off the menu by submitting their requests in advance to ensure they had what they wanted to eat. We were very impressed with how they accommodated the children without any fuss. We will definitely be going again and highly recommend the Boot Room to anyone planning to go out for a meal.

    Nice ambience, excellent food we were looked after by the owner who could not have done anymore to enhance our dining experience

    Friendly staff. Attractive interior design reflecting the history of the building - a shoe factory- in a contemporary way.
    We were the only people in there until shortly before we left so, no buzzy atmosphere but a very enjoyable evening.
