My eight year old daughter was very close to experiencing a serious allergic reaction today after eating a desert which apparently 'had no nuts' in. During a trip out for lunch on Sunday 5th July , we made enquiries about the chocolate waffle desert to check with the waitress whether it contained nuts before ordering it. We were assured by...

Great atmosphere, I wanted to stay and work there the whole day. The food was acceptable but I found it a little over priced for what it was.

I recently visited this restaurant with a friend for a nice lunch. I ordered at the bar with the young male who made me repeat the order a few times; however was no big issue. When the food came they had brought the wrong main for my friend which I told the waitress who quickly said she would change this.... More

Having eaten at the Orange Tree(s) in Leicester many times, and had amazing service from lovely knowledgeable staff I was totally let down by Loughborough. Not only was there nothing on the menu I could eat as a vegan, (Leicester has a ton of options!) the staff didn't know the menu, couldn't help and didn't seem to care. In the... More

Excellent variety of cocktails and the bar staff are trained very well in making them. It is my bar of choice when I fancy something alcoholic and sweet. Sometimes when it's busy it takes a long time to get served but that's only because of the effort they put into the cocktails. Decent prices (~£6 each or pitchers for £14).... More

then go to The Orange Tree. There are other places in Loughborough that sell cocktails, but The Orange Tree (and The Kelso - the club next door, same owners) is the best. A wide range of cocktails, on an ever changing menu, which aren't too extortionately priced (approximately £5 each, and they have happy hour deals). Not experienced the food... More
