Very good, but no big finish

We took the opportunity to dine here as our two mini people in the family (aged 8 and 11) had started to show an interest in fine dining and the offer of the midweek 5 course taster menu seemed very good value for money. We had already dined here previously so knew the setting and general quality... read more

My then civil partner and I converted our CP to a marriage recently and chose the Grey Lady to mark the occasion with family and close friends. We booked the private dining room for 11 and really could not have had a better experience. The vegetarians in the party were particularly well catered for and there was high praise indeed... More

Having been to Gibsons Grey Lady once before and been thoroughly impressed, this was the only place I wanted to book for my 40th birthday celebrations and I was not disappointed. The surroundings are picturesque, the restaurant is bright, airy & well presented. There were 12 in our party, we had a room to ourselves, which was perfect. The food... More

Really good value, beautiful surroundings, great service and excellent food. Have been three times now to meet up with friends and would highly recommed the taster menu, as it's fun to see each dish arrive, adds to the conversation - not that it's needed, and gives you an opportunity to try new things. The beautiful and fashionable decor is on... More

We came here as two girlfriends - and we were not disappointed! We opted for the 5 course taster menu and at £20, it was exceptional value for money. Every course was simply exquisite - there was nothing we could fault. The service, atmosphere, decor and food was just outstanding! Definitely worth a visit!

We recently enjoyed a lovely Saturday evening meal at The Grey Lady. The food was delicious although the main course, beef could have done with a little more sauce (jus), the little that there was soon disappeared. Main course aside, the starter and suite were delicious. When we arrived we were led to our table however our waitress never asked... More

I have been to The Grey Lady for lunch a couple of times and find it lacks that little something that could make it wonderful. On entry the butter is already on the table, getting sweaty, not good, but then it is served with warm bread straight from the oven, which is gorgeous. My first visit I had a roast... More

It's true to say - you get what you pay for and this is true of The Grey Lady. This is fine dining in the Leicestershire countryside, in a recently refurbished restaurant. Agreed, it is certainly not the cheapest restaurant in town - but what you do get is plush and comfortable surroundings, attentive, but discreet staff, a good choice... More

One of the discoveries and certainly one of the best around! The place is amazing, the people are amazing,the restaurant is as impeccable as the atmosphere and the food is brilliant! Try the caramelized banana dessert with banana mousse. It is absolutely delightful and now I love banana desserts!

Visited last Friday evening for the first time. It's a lovely, open airy restaurant in a great setting. We received a nice welcome and was taken to the bar area for a drink and to look at the menu. This is a higher end eating place so it's all relaxed service where they don't rush you and it makes for... More
