i had a dreadful experience in the restaurant today and will not be returning. I purchased a dry tuna baguette which fell apart and had no butter along with a far too frothy half full mug of Latte coffee. Staff had 'JL Catering' logos on their uniform, I'm not sure if all areas were looked after by this company? I... More

Highcross is home to a variety of shops- whether looking for children's toys or to buy furniture- there is a shop to suit your needs. Highcross has many everyday names but if looking for something special stop in House Of Fraser or John Lewis. It is a great place to stop buy if in the Midlands. It can get very... More

The mall is big and the facade is fantastic, but we couldn't find anything special to buy. Probably our expectation is high, but from that big mall you expect some thing great to buy. The only thing we bought was chocolate from hotel chocolate which were really tasty.

This place gets absolutely packed on a Saturday which I'm not overly keen on. However, there is a good range of shops including three department stores: John Lewis, Debenhams and House of Fraser. I would like to see more eateries. The ones on the ground floor become far too busy by lunchtime however, John Lewis and Debenhams both have good... More

The service was awful, I had paid or would have walked away. The coffee took nearly ten minutes to come and customers were served during my order being completed. The cinnabuns were so small and didn't taste fresh. We had both eaten our buns long before my cold drink arrived. Hopeless, as I said don't go there!

One cant come back from Leicester without visiting the High Cross at Leicester, England. It is the Connaught Place of Leicester. Once in Leicester, you will not miss India. You can get everything Indian there and if you want the desi-feel, hit the local Gurudwara for a darshan and langar.

It is so good to see just how many UK cities have been improved in recent years. Leicester is no different. The Highcross shopping centre and restaurants is a really impressive area. Anyone, from anywhere in the world would be impressed with the quality of surroundings with great stores in a great environment, and very impressive range of quality restaurants.

Great selection of shops, but very busy, parking is a little bit expensive. Has 2 lifts to enable disabled and elderly to reach floors quickly and safely + escalators.
