This restaurant is set in stunning surroundings, and the interior decor is beautiful seating is comfortable, service was slow , cutlery was covered in marks.

Overcooked teaspoon... More

We went with friends on a Friday evening. We were greeted by friendly staff and asked if we could have one of the booths. This was no problem. The booths are cosy and I think give you a little more privacy if that is what you want. we had time to ponder the menu and there was no rush from... More

We have eaten here many times over the years and have yet to be disappointed. For the past three years it has been the venue of our ' Company's Christmas Dinner'. As ever, my wife and I look forward to our Annual Festive Treat, and yet again the food was delicious and the service exemplary. To start my wife and... More

I went with my other half to celebrate our anniversary, this used to be a top dining experience however the last 2 occasions that we have visited the food has been terrible, very poorly cooked meat dishes that quite frankly could be bettered at a chain pub, you simply can't sit back and expect customers to keep coming with poor...

Will definately try the lunch time menu again at a different time of the year and if we get same good food and service but for the lower, everyday... More

Tastefully renovated. Nice lunchtime visit for four people in early Jan. The christmas menu was still in operation but was perfectly satisfactory with plenty of choices for starters and mains. The layout of the restaurant is modern with lots of light woodwork and glass being used but it works well. We had a good table, but would suggest that if... More

We were a small party who'd pre booked some time in advance for our Christmas dinner and dance. The main room is a lovely setting with little booths by the windows which would have been perfect for our party. We were taken to our table and that's where it went wrong. We were in the back room where the disco... More

Lodged in the middle of beautiful Charnwood Forest, very close to Bradgate park, is the Grey lady. Great service in modern surroundings. Food of a very high standard.
