Smart and modern

Sunday lunch was good. Not special but tasty nonetheless. I enjoyed my food and none of us ( 4 in total ) left anything, so a good sign. Easy to locate in a lovely setting. Great on a clear and sunny day. Smart, very clean and bright but not over the top with a decent menu and extensive wine... read more

The food was delicious. We have been to le manoir Raymond Blanc's restaurant and this comes very close to it without the price! Staff are very friendly. Fine dining portions but they are really rich so felt satisfied. ambiance is very tasteful.

Went for Sunday lunch with family and was unfortunately slightly disappointed. Firstly I wasn't impressed with the entrance, as we arrived inside the cold and small area we were greeted by numerous dead insects on the window sills which as you can imagine was not very welcoming. Once we actually sat down we, again were not impressed, this fortunately wasn't... More

A glorious English summer's day with Sunday lunch at a lovely pub next to Bradgate Park. Lovely building and room (lavatories in really good nick - clean bright and fresh). Classic menu choice of five starters, five mains & five desserts, ticked all the food groups. Only let down was the seasonal veg - a Tesco value pack of cauliflower,... More

Poor service, missed essential parts of our dish out and when we asked what had happened, our waitress didn't even come back and give us an explanation. One gent was particularly rude to us. Think his name was David. Would NEVER go there again! For a restaurant that classes itself almost to be Michelin star, well they're a LONG way... More

I've been going to Bradgate park all my life with my dogs and always looked at the Grey lady and i always think i should try it. Well last night i did. It was absolutely amazing. Welcome was warm, service was good, drinks were good and the food was excellent. Portions were good and the ingredients were fresh and very... More

This is the second time my wife and myself have been taken here for Sunday lunch. A very nice and roomy restaurant serving a good lunch with a fine choice of food. I very much look forward to our next visit to the Grey Lady.

After getting seated outside and being prepared to stay we left after seeing the menu. One staff member just glared at us on entry and said nothing in greeting, although another next to her was helpful in finding us a table outside. However, the vegetarian choice was really poor, and there was no welcoming feeling for first-time visitors. It seemed... More

I have visited The Grey Lady many times over the years but this was a new venue for most of our party of 11. Everyone was impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the waiting staff. Service was good but unhurried even on a busy Sunday afternoon. Choice of food was comprehensive and no-one was disappointed. Wine was reasonable price... More
