Excellent as always

I have been a regular customer since moving to Harborough 8 years ago. I still think that Ascoughs wins hands down when it comes to service and value for money. The quality of the menu choice is great and they vary it every month. I been lucky enough to eat in some very nice restaurants over time... read more

We booked online and was a very simple process via email. We sat in the upstairs area which was spacious. Menu was varied and service was efficient but we did not feel rushed through in anyway. Was very noisy but it was a Saturday night and very busy. Would definitely plan to eat here again in the coming months. Thank... More

Our first time eating here and it was really by mistake, but how glad we are that we did. The menu is varied and fairly priced, we both enjoyed two courses that were of a perfect size for our appetites, but what made it different was the staff. The restaurant has plenty of staff to cope with the number of... More

How to write something original about Market Harborough's premier restaurant?! Just two comments: first, I was extremely fortunate to be included at late notice to a group of four dining on a Saturday evening. Apart from a minor delay waiting to ask for the bill, the service was exemplary from each of the four or five waiters/waitresses serving us: effortlessly... More

Great choice of restaurant to celebrate a birthday. There's a very good choice from the menu, which apparently changes monthly. The food is freshly prepared and cooked, so a little wait but well worth it! Absolutely delicious. Good wine list and great atmosphere. A real attention to detail accompanied by very friendly and efficient service. Thoroughly recommend.

I visit this restaurant regularly with a couple of friends and we are usually very pleased with everything. However last week, on a particularly cold day we went for lunch and found the restaurant really chilly. We were also disappointed in the choice of main courses, maybe a little too "experimental"? Our other bug bear was when we ordered elderflower... More

Thank you Mary for your honest review. It is such a shame that as a regular customer I would of thought you could have come and spoken with us directly to discuss your experience. We have had good feed back regarding the January menu and as you know it changes every month so some dishes may not appeal to everyone... More

Our last visit was Thursday,14th January for lunch and we took our American friend. The ambiance was friendly and warm. We chose from the small but varied menu and were not disappointed. The food was beautifully presented, extremely tasty and most reasonably priced. Would recommend this restaurant to people who enjoy beautifully presented delicious food at an extremely good value.
