    Afternoon tea was okay.... there were a lot of sweet options but the sandwiches were basic. The vegetarian choice was limited. Service was infrequent and we waited a long time to pay. Wouldn't rush back there.

    Lovely old building full of character well maintained. Great service right from arrival. Great spirits behind the bar. Lovely horderves which weren’t expected and a great meal. We will be returning.

    Really enjoyed our recent experience at Leicesters....we had the tasting menu & really enjoyed every dish (other than the pidgeon but that's just personal preference). There were a few downsides.... the bit of plastic left in one of the dishes left over from the sous vie cooking, the atmosphere was a little lacking & could have done with a bit longer between courses...but it was absolutely delicious & I would definitely go back, & thoroughly recommend the tasting menu.

    Superb food and service would highly recommend this restaurant

    The restaurant is set in a beautiful old building with low stone arches between rooms and clearly lots of history perpetuating throughout.
    We were greeted by very friendly young guy who offered us drinks before we went to the restaurant.
    We were given some complimentary finger food tasties in the small bar area before going into the restaurant. The food was very good, a special occasion type of place. Great service, great food and we had our 2 year old with us.
    I would highly recommend it and will certainly return.

    I booked this for lunch for 2 on my wifes birthday. They offered a varied menu which more than fulfilled our requirements. The staff were very courteous, the ambience delightful and the food superb.

    We were keen to try the restaurant since the chef had changed. The dining room felt more spacious and airy than before. All the staff were lovely, professional and respectful. The atmosphere was nice with a good group of diners but not overly crowded. Food was superb as usual. I had requested a special bottle of champagne for our anniversary which you kindly sorted for us, making the day and the meal even more special.

    The quality of the food was outstanding. All meat dishes were cooked to perfection and everyone in our party of seven thought the same. Very polite staff and our only minor quibble was that the hot drinks at the end of the meal were spread out over 15 minutes so we couldn't drink them together. Other than that we had a great dining experience.
