This is a place for for very special occasions.it is exclusive and very posh.The menu is great with varied dishes on offer.When my wife and I went there for our wedding anniversary,they had an early bird menu which at the time was still expensive,but you don't seem to mind when it's something special.Beautiful surroundings overlooking Bradgate Park.Recommended.Dave P

We visited The Grey Lady for an impromptu lunch with family on a busy Friday service. It was a difficult task for the staff, trying to please three genrations of the family! Service was warm and welcoming from the off. A glass of Prosecco in the bar area was relaxing whilst we were handed out menus to chose from a... More

Fabulous venue for an impromptu birthday lunch. An impressive set lunch menu, with varied course choices coupled with a slick unobtrusive service makes this a restaurant I will certainly put on my list of favourites. Can recommend the Sauvignon house wine which washed down a delicious three courses for us all beautifully. A special thanks to our lovely, patient and... More

Nothing particularly bad to say about our experience. Lovely food, lovely atmosphere, lovely staff, perhaps a little bit pricey but this can be expected from such a high quality restaurant.

We went again on Valentines Day. It is quite a few months since we last ate here and I was hoping the standard would be just as high. It was. We were greeted by very friendly staff and the meal was really delicious. My starter was a mussels dish and was full of flavour. The main course, duck was tender... More

There was 18 of us booked in the private room for a family party, the selection of food on offer was good. the service was prompt and the staff were very attentive. The meal worked out to be reasonably priced, and included the greeting drinks, wine and water at the table. The only downside was the size of the table,... More

We feel after 16 years of dining on a weekly basis at the Grey Lady, it was time to comment on tripadvisor to let them know and everyone else of what a wonderful experience we have always had dining here. Over the years we have tried many top end restaurant's including The Ritz on various occasions but none have come... More
