If you're looking for a 5* venue in Leicestershire then this is it. The food is excellent and the staff are extremely professional and very attentive. My partner & I could not recommend this place more highly.

As a local, I had not been to this restaurant for years because on our last visit I felt it was ridiculously over priced. However, the restaurant that I usually lunch at with my friends has closed down, so I was looking for an alternative. I am pleased to say that all the group had high praise for the lunch... More

Odd place really - clearly catering for wealthy locals. Although the decor is trying to be contemporary and exclusive it comes across as outdated and kitsch. There were a few diners but the atmosphere was flat - I think the layout could be changed for the better to address some of that. The food is very nice - well presented,... More

I remember this restaurant from years ago when we went with family and knew we were in for a treat. First the good points the decor is contemporary and stylish. The bar area is a lot bigger now and... More

Had a 3 course meal on Saturday 9 August. Everything about the place is perfection, food, service, wine and not forgetting the setting. There was so much effort put into every course, I couldn't say which I enjoyed more. It is a little expensive, but worth it. Good for special occasions or just to enjoy a good plate of food.... More

Visited this restaurant for the Sunday lunch. The food was first class and all six of us enjoyed it. The staff were very good, being friendly and efficient. The decor is excellent being a mixture of classic and modern all set in a wonderful garden. Taking all this into account the £22 for three courses was well worth it. There... More

We've used the restaurant for a long time now and in May 2013 we used the Grey Lady for our wedding venue. Both at the wedding and whenever we eat there the staff are fantastic. We've never had a bad meal and so many people at the wedding commented to myself and my husband about how wonderful the food was.... More

I can't fault the food here or the service, other than the fact that they do charge quite a lot for what you get.
