Myself and 6 family members had booked a table for 12 noon for Sunday lunch, after a wander around the Christmas market. Despite being busy, service was quick, and the food was amazing! I went for the ham hock starter, then the beef which was perfectly pink and tender. My only qualm is that it would have been better if... More

We were invited to my brothers birthday lunch. I like this place it is very comfortable, superbly located in Charnwood Forest with good parking. As usual it was quite busy but we were shown to our table relatively quickly and our order taken soon after we were seated. The menu choice is very good and the wine list is also... More

One of my 2 favourite places to go for a meal around Leicester. Had a great meal out - mother in law heartily recommends the Guinea fowl!

We went as a four person visit, our starters were all different, I had mackerel, with several pieces of hot fruit, my wife had arborio rice with mushrooms & celeriac, our daughter and husband had a chicken dish that they said was super. We all had roast beef but cooked ranging from pink to well done with all the trimmings.... More

We went to the restaurant for lunch. The staff were polite on arrival and throughout our meal. There was a fixed price menu for a two or 3 course lunch and a good selection to choose from. The food was very good and we were all full after two courses. The only criticism I have is that there was quite... More

Very good lunch, and very good value to boot. Service was attentive and good. The starters were the highlight, closely followed by the main course. As with my last review, the desserts we had were 'pleasant'. Nothing horrible or unpalatable, far from it, but just ok? It feels like a shame as the first two courses were very good....strange! Would... More

A beautiful traditional lunch in superb surroundings. The ambience was buzzing and although busy, the staff were very attentive. I had roast beef which melted in my mouth and I can honestly say that I didn't want the meal to end.It was lovely to have a licquer coffee with 'proper' fresh cream not aerosol cream.
