We went here for a celebration after having it recommended and were not disappointed! The food was delicious - I particularly enjoyed my creme brûlée dessert! The staff were great and made sure we had everything we needed! The restaurant is also situated in a beautiful part of Leicestershire. Definitely want to go back here again soon.

We were a party of 8, Service was very slow and disjointed. The wines we selected they were out of. The Service was bad, mainly due to lack of any apparent supervision. Young staff who were struggling to keep up with the pace. Will not be returning as there are far better in the area.

We cant thank this restaurant enough, we have recently got married here and it was amazing, the food was to the highest standard and the venue looked stunning. The staff were so helpful from start to finish and nothing was too much trouble for them. I think they will have some definite regulars from our very happy party!!

We have eaten here on a number of occasions but this was our first visit for Sunday lunch. As expected, there were no disappointments with a good choice on the menu, great food served, wonderful service provided by the staff and a great atmosphere (the place was packed). Remains our favourite restaurant !

We went for an anniversary lunch on Tuesday, and really enjoyed ourselves. The restaurant is beautifully situated and decorated. We both had the hot smoked salmon with citrus lentils and in my opinion this was the star of the show. It was one of the best starters I have ever had. The mains to follow were good, I had the...
