Wonderful lunchtime menu, the quality of the food is superb, the blue for money 💰 is great at £16 for 3 courses. Staff were also very very good, I recommend the carrot and onion bhaji on a spinach bed to start! 😋

A great restaurant in a beautiful Market town of Market Harborough. Although we only visited at lunch and opted for the set menu. The food was excellent and well served in beautiful surroundings and reasonable prices. Then a lovely day shopping in this beautiful town.
