A daily changing, market fresh menu at Leicester Restaurant is brimming with organic and local produce. Committed to offering the finest natural flavours, the Great House Hotel crafts all its own breads, pastries and sauces, while the kitchen’s herbs are sourced from the hotel gardens. The Great House restaurant’s award-winning menu ranges from Welsh beef fillet with potato rosti and mushroom duxelle, to salmon and crayfish roulade with watercress mousse.

Renowned for its indulgent afternoon teas, guests at Leicester Restaurant in Cardiff are treated to an elegant, traditional selection. Enjoy homemade cakes and buttery shortbread, as well as scones with lashings of preserves and clotted cream, and fresh finger sandwiches.

    We went for the 3 course set lunch menu, great value and all the food was presented beautifully and tasted wonderful. The mussels were especially good with a wonderful selection of bread cooked on the premises. I can recommend the mango cheesecake dessert... Tart but exquisitely sweetened with shards or meringue, an inspired taste combination. All set in a chic but relaxed dining room with very friendly staff! Don't think you could ask for me and great value for money at £22 for 3 courses. Thank you so much

    A really terrific dining experience with wonderful flavours and textures throughout. The mackerel dish was fresh, zesty and perfectly balanced. The free range pork is a triumph with the perfect harmony of heartiness and refinement.

    Our over all feeling at the end was a feeling of well-being! The flavours of the snack, two starters and two main courses were exquisite. We haven't tasted food this good locally for some time. We will be back. Staff were friendly but professional.

    From start to finish we had an extremely enjoyable evening. Loved sitting by the fireplace and warming ourselves before the meal although the rest of the bar layout is not as welcoming.
    The ability to cater for my dietary requirements was brilliant and my main course of the pork was adapted and the flavours were exceptional. The staff were very attentive and had a good sense of humour which added to the whole experience.

    Afternoon tea : given as a Xmas present
    Food as usual was very good and the service fine although we didn’t sit get our tea until 40 minutes after we sat down . We don’t like rushing but as one of the girls had a hospital appointment it was rushed for her . Sitting in the bar instead of the resturant may be cosy but the tables are far too small and one tea pot had to go on the window ledge ! The cloths and china are very datedparticularly after my last afternoon tea was in the resturant . Next time I will check u are serving in the resturant not the bar before I book .
