We booked a week before because the venue is so popular and everything was brilliant;food; wine and service. We both had a great evening and can thoroughly recommend. The menu had plenty of choice, all was well cooked and presented. A very good value for money in a great venue. We told them when booking what occasion was we were... More

My husband and I went to celebrate his birthday. It was his first visit to the new venue. I have been twice before, for lunch with a friend. One thing I like about Ascough's is the regular change of menu. I have never had bad food or service and would recommend it to anyone. Locals know how popular it is... More

Myself and two friends went to Ascough's for our birthday treat - we all have birthdays in June, always struggle to agree on a get together date...and to choose a venue! It's a nightmare! So we decided on Ascough's and I'am glad we did - bit of a weird anti climax waiting at the bar at 7.30'till 8 to be... More

Booked here in advance for my wife's birthday as I know it's hard to get in. We hadn't been since it moved location. The food and service were great but unless you are a proper foodie, I can guarantee you won't know what some of the things on the menu are! For example I chose a dish that had 'pont... More

We visited here a few weeks ago. We had been to the restaurant a few times at the old premises. I phoned on a Saturday morning on the off-chance that they might have a cancellation for that evening. they said they hadn't at that time but would phone me later if one did arise. I was phoned at 3.30pm and... More

Great menu but rather disappointed with the evening, strange ambience in the restaurant and the food did not live up to the description. Good value though and compared to the rest of the lack lustre Harborough food options this is still worth a go.

Really lovely long lunch with family aged from 1 year to 75 years. All enjoyed the food and the experience. Really big thanks to the staff who all helped to make the lunch run smoothly despite the challenges of serving a large party with children. It was very relaxing for us! Still think a set lunch for £14 is very... More
