Evening dinner with slow service

A group of seven of us received excellent food but the service was very slow. The restaurant wasn't busy, but there seemed to be few people serving. And they missed out on a thirsty crowd by not asking if we required any more drinks on a regular basis.

We used to come here a lot but then didn't due to portion sizes and the cost of sides which you always have to order. We decided to give it a go again as wanted to stay local one night and we are so glad we did. The atmosphere was great in there, the service from all staff was impeccable... More

Not easy to find if you don't know where to look but well worth the search. Excellent menu with great taste. Portions adequate leaving room for dessert. Managed excellently and prepared to ask what pace you want the meal at which is so rare these days. Staff attentive and friendly but not constantly hovering. Overall good ale and highly recommended.

If you've not yet paid Cini's a visit, I would recommend that you do so. I do love this restaurant, so I invited a friend to join me this week. She agreed that it was first class and like me, feels it has more to offer than similar restaurants in Leicestershire. Excellent, varied menu, a warm welcome from a friendly... More

Second visit here. The bar is very good and the staff very friendly with some unusual gin! Went as a group of couples and had a good meal. The menu is above average price and has a good selection, it's not my favourite restaurant in town but it's close and would recommend for a similar party

Went with a party of 9. The food was good and served up quickly enough that we weren't left waiting hungry but not so fast that we felt rushed. I had the crab and chilli pasta, outstanding and well worth going just for that dish. One minor criticism, the cheese and biscuits come with no butter. Very dry! Still not... More
