I was looking forward to going for my birthday meal with my partner. I booked online and also received a text on the day confirming my booking. When we arrived was told my booking was cancelled., however the waitress sorted this straight away and we were seated. The food and service were great the chorizo sauages were to die for.... More

Very busy for a Thursday night and fortunately we had booked. Interesting choices on menu. We seemed to wait longer than necessary before our order was taken but after that service was excellent with staff who were on the ball and friendly. We thought lighting was dingy, and it perhaps needs some soft furnishings to deaden noise from other diners.... More

Long time since had lunch here (as opposed to dinner), so popped in on off chance there was a spare table, and indeed there was. Generally one has to book well in advance. Extremely reasonably priced at £10 for two courses (drinks and certain special menu items extra), food beautifully presented and delicious as always, service reasonably fast and very... More

Ascough's is a real find. Their food and service is excellent and reasonably priced. In fact I can think of a few restaurants that would benefit from sending their staff here for a meal.

My friends and colleagues have raved about Ascough's for ages and I can see why! The food was mouth-watering and imaginatively presented. As a vegetarian, I am often disappointed by the quality and presentation of food, however this was definitely not the case. The food was simply delicious and good value too. The staff are delightful and took time to... More

We visit friends near Market Harborough a few times a year and always go to Ascough's for a meal as long as it has been booked well in advance. This was the first time at the new address. It was light and airy and a bit noisy but they have tried to deal with this by putting soft furnishings into... More

This restaurant is remarkable for two reasons. Firstly, three courses for £21 is exceptional value and second the wine mark up is only £10 a bottle. I have to say that both these comments are based on the fact I live in London where the mark up for the wine can be up to 10 times the retail price. My... More

Ascoughs is an outstanding restaurant, especially after moving to its larger St Mary's Rd site. The food is always excellent and very reasonably priced and the service is friendly and attentive. Standards are consistently high, which is why it is often booked up, well in advance, for evenings. Lunch is just as good, if you can't get in at night.

Having read an article about Ascoughs in the Leicester Mercury magazine I was intrigued to find out if the restaurant is as good as it said. My mother and I had lunch there today and we were very impressed by the friendly,efficient service and the delicious food. Another one to add to my list as I will definitely make a... More
