I took my husband for his birthday last week. It was our first visit to the new premises and we weren't disappointed. The food and service was, as usual, excellent. As for the venue, the space has been transformed in a way previous occupants failed. By adding a few simple partitions and clever lighting they have still managed to create... More

Congratulations to Chris and team on an excellent refurb of their new premises. Have been many times to the 'old' restaurant and a couple to the new one prior to the redesign work being carried out. It is all very subtle and understated but helps to create a lovely atmosphere. Food, as always was first rate and service excellent. A... More

My husband went to the newly relocated restaurant and newly refurbished, for my birthday meal and had yet another really good meal at a very good price. The Chilean sauv blanc is as good as any New Zealand wine and at a very good price. Well done Chris and your staff. The new decor creates a very relaxing atmosphere. E... More

Another venue, not so intimate as the original but the food is just the very same high quality we have come to expect from the premier eatery in Market Harborough. We have yet to be disappointed. The service is welcoming, friendly and attentive and the food and drink second to none. Book early or you will not get a table!

Having visited Ascoughs many times we finally managed to get a table at their new premises, we loved the décor, much bigger restaurant and very attentive staff. On a down note it was impossible to hold a conversation with our friends, the noise level was extreme, were we just unfortunate to have two very noisy tables by us though not... More

We have been to this restaurant on many occasions and have always had a superb meal. We went last week with some friends from Holland for the first time at the new premises and were very impressed. The ambience/décor was lovely and as always the staff are first rate. I had a small problem with my main course but it... More

Who ever does the staff interviews at Ascough's is very good at finding great staff, who are welcoming, smiley and good at their jobs. Just the right amount of attention not too intrusive. They all seem happy to be working at Ascoughs and it shows. Food as usual very very good. Just wish we had a few more restaurants of... More
