The taster menu at the Grey Lady is to die for. Incredible value at £20 per head for five courses of genuine fine dining. Forget the gastro pub imitations this is the real deal in Leicestershire A wonderfully fresh tasting pea soup, basil foam in a glass was followed by a very light and tasty goats cheese pannacotta ( I...

My partner took me to The Grey Lady last week for a special birthday treat. We ordered pea soup and steak. We were given the options of 'pink' or 'well done' for the steak..... I asked for mine 'medium' with no blood and was told that wasn't possible, only pink or well done. We were told their steak is cooked... More

We received a warm welcome and we had a nice table, the restaurant was busy with a good ambience. it was a Sunday and there was a Sunday lunch menu, a... More

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.

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 Although the decor is trying to be contemporary and exclusive it comes across as outdated and kitsch.

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
