Nicely decorated modern restaurant. It was very busy, but the atmosphere was quiet and reserved and relaxed. There was a wide range of foods on the menu that were different from the high street restaurant choices. The food is inventive and good quality. There is a choice form a set price menu or main menu. Wine was a little pricy.... More

We visited for my mothers birthday where they were happy to accomodate our large family including young children. We did have to book well in advance to secure the reservation as it is such a popular restaurant! The varied and ever changing menu always includes something to suit all tastes and is always a perfect blend of traditional food with... More

An evening out with friends. We arrived early as we had taken the train. The welcome could have been improved by taking our coats & asking if we would like a pre dinner drink. The menus came quickly & we asked for a drink. Lots of choice available within the set dinner menu. No complimentary nibbles came with our drinks... More

The varied menu provided plenty of choice for our party of four who selected a wide range of meals and all were enjoyed. We never ate at the previous premises, but found the atmosphere a bit cold, although a big improvement on the previous occupants. It was nevertheless a pleasant atmosphere to have good conversation over delicious food. We will... More

We are regulars at this very pleasant Bistro in Market Harborough. The menu is always interesting and varied and presented tastefully. At Michel Roux's you'd pay at least £60 a head. Staff are attentive and courteous - although I do get fed up with the ubiquitous 'No problem'! Book early - especially for Saturday evening.

This was my first visit to the new premises and I was not disappointed. The restaurant has been tastefully improved to create a more cosy atmosphere. The food continues to be of good value, I booked on line with no problem, but I know that advanced booking is essential, no spur of the moment visits, especially on a Saturday night.... More

Ascough's has always served good food and the move to their new premises has not changed this. What has changed is the difficulty of getting a table within a reasonable time frame. In addition the staff are becoming very offhand in dealing with booking requests. On a recent occasion I attempted to book 2 weeks in advance and was told... More

What a wonderful evening we had at Ascoughs on 17th Dec. As always we were looking forward to our 'date night' and this evening was no exception! From the attentive service to the warm and Christmassy atmosphere we couldn't have asked for more! We are booked up until April as it's so busy and I wanted to be well organised!... More

I have been a regular and satisfied diner at Ascoughs, although since the move to new premises my enjoyment has waned to the point that I wont recommend it to family and friends.
