We went out for a Christmas get together with friends a group of 10 ,we all said we would never go back , food was bland, not great service , and overpriced ,not a great experience , so our recommendations would only be go and spend your hard earned money some where else.

Interesting menu with lots of local produce. I prefer vegetarian food and there was a good choice here.

We went to taste the stunning new menu, and loved it! Pig cheeks, pressed rabbit, cheesy polenta to start. Tofu and pumpkin, ricotta and parmesan ravioli, scallop and pork belly mains. And the assiette of desserts, because we couldn't choose between them. Everything was delicious, and we can't wait to go again.

Excellent food, all from local sources :) slightly pricey for everyday dining but great for a special occasion (pretty much same menu during the day is alot cheaper). Great atmosphere for romantic meals & also great for girly cocktails before a night out...I'd highly recommend!

Expensive - which if based on the food is justifiable as the food is fantastic. However, service is really bad. Staff are rude and don't even know what the food they are serving is. Such a let down, massive potential to be fantastic if the service matched the food. Embarrassing as I was entertaing friends!!

I had been wanting to eat here for a while, so my husband and I visited on a Saturday afternoon. The booth was free, so we asked if we could sit there. It was comfortable, however quite dark. The other tables seemed set very close by to one another. The were lots of drapes around the booth and the decor... More

Pre-booked for five people mid-week for a birthday treat. Lovely boutique venue facing a new piazza in Leicester. We received a warm welcome, chose our drinks/meals in the sofa area and were shown across to our table when it was ready. Small menu, with a great variety of dishes to cater for a range of dietary requirements. The food was... More
