Description: Holding 2 coveted AA Rosettes and twice named Country Restaurant of the Year, Leicester's Restaurant is worth going out of the way for. Located in the rolling green valleys of South Wales, Leicester's is tucked inside the charming Great House Hotel in Bridgend - perfect for any kind of getaway. Fresh Welsh produce is used as often as possible, and the restaurant strives to use organic local produce wherever possible, including fresh fish caught in nearby Porthcawl. Sample a terrine of free range chicken and foie gras with parsnip puree and house dried figs, or the justifiably famous Welsh beef, served in a red wine and shallot sauce on creamed cabbage. Lunch specials are also worth a look.

Went to Leicester's for first time Last Saturday . What a fab place as you drive in the old stone look building and walls look great !

Have visited Leicesters restaurant at the Great House Llaleston many a time over the years. Have always had a cracking meal and great service be it an intimate valentines meal, a delicious Sunday family lunch or a market menu mid week treat - I've never been let down. Bravo.

A lovely old house that has, according to the brochure, been renovated from a wreck. The hotel bar is characterful and cosy and the restaurant is comfortable. The garden seating was very pretty and I'm sure the rest of the hotel would not disappoint. We were only passing through for a quick lunch so didn't see more than the bar... More

My Wife & I had a marvellous time at this Restaurant, the food was very good and the staff were very attentive, particularly 'Marcel' who seemed eager to go the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed our experience.

To be honest: this is one of the first experiences I had with 'fine dining' in the UK (Wales). I made a reservation for a Wednesday evening for one person. Reception was friendly, although I always had the impression that the restaurant (which is also a hotel) was a little understaffed. The beginning was good: they offer the possibility to... More

My friend and I had afternoon tea here and it was lovely! A great range of sandwiches and cakes! Staff were attentive but without being too intrusive. They also made a fuss of my young daughter who came with us. I would recommend the food too which I have had on other occasions.

This was a good evening all in all. The location is beautiful and the warm welcome is a great start. The staff were warm and accommodating but during service there were a few instances where we had to ask for cutlery (only reason it's not a 5) though I can't be to harsh they were very apologetic. The food was... More
