Ascoughs for pre Christmas lunch has become a family tradition which we really look forward to. My wife and I make several other visits a year because the quality of food and dining experience is excellent and it is such great value for money. How this quality is maintained at such low cost is amazing. The Christmas menu maintained this... More

About 18 months ago I wrote a not altogether glowing review of this restaurant. Most of my friends were surprised because they loved it. However, I've just been again and it was indeed fabulous. We had the 3 course lunch menu which, at £14 is great value. The chicken liver terrine starter was soft & smooth (just how I like... More

We have dined at Ascoughs now on at least a dozen occasions and have never been disappointed, The food, service, staff and ambiance are first class and it is easy to see why they are fully booked at weekends at least 4 - 6 weeks in advance. It always amazes us how they can produce such consistent quality at such... More

You will not get a better selection , better quality , better service or better value anywhere - this is why they are always fully booked well ahead. One of our friends has to have glutton free food.Sometimes this can be a problem but not here - they fully understood and offered a full range of dishes and options without... More

Celebrated my Dads birthday here in November and we all have a lovely evening. Great menu, difficult to make a selection, however I am sure that whatever I had chosen would have been delicious. The staff were relaxed and friendly, the food was superb. Cant wait till next year - hope to go more than once on my next visit.

Booked for lunch with family at this lovely restaurant. Welcome was warm and sincere, not over the top. Decor and ambiance lovely and a really good space created between tables so you don't feel as though you are on top of each other. Lovely menu and good wine list. All of our party were delighted with their choices, taste, and... More

Always a pleasure to dine at this restaurant. Good produce, cooked to perfection and the most reasonable prices. Chris and Anna are always charming hosts and it is always a delight to be there. Always look ahead to book, to be safe, at least 4 weeks for a Friday or Saturday night. My first choice for dining locally and this... More

Happily settled in their new larger premises, Ascough's continues to offer the best restaurant experience in Market Harborough. A recent birthday celebration for my wife was typical. Excellent food, first class service and still a friendly atmosphere. Only problem is it's a very badly kept secret and you really need to book a long way ahead, which is a pity... More
