This was our first visit and we didn't come away disappointed. Full marks to the waiter who met us on arrival, and noticing my husband uses a walking stick, immediately altered our table from the one downstairs to a ground floor one. Excellent menu choice, with two vegetarians out of the four of us choosing the mushroom main course and... More

Came here with my fiancé for my birthday meal in August. It really is a superb restaurant, fantastic service and choice of wines but the real star of the show is the food. The menu is cleverly written and there is a vast choice. We opted for the crab tian and the beef carpaccio. The crab was delicious and the... More

We have visited Ascough's in Market Harborough on a numb of accessions and never been disappointed. Normally the menu contains at least 2 or 3 main courses that really tempt us, BUT this time we were tempted by every course offered. Their ability to create new tastes from normal ingredients is simply amazing AND all at a very reasonable price.... More

Was taken there a couple of weeks ago for my birthday, first time in the new location. We have eaten there many times over the years, but not for some time and with variable results. This time the booking process ("we can take you only at 7 or 9" - even though in the event there were a few empty... More

We had booked for our wedding anniversary and were made to feel most unwelcome because the table was booked for 7.00 and we arrived 5 mins early and were not allowed to have a drink because we were told that they were not officially open until 7.00. On a subsequent visit we were told off by the owner because we... More

We were served politely and efficiently despite the restaurant being so busy, and all our party really enjoyed their food. This is without doubt the best place to eat in... More

Booked a table for lunch last week, you are given the menu choices which is either 2/3 courses for a set price, then just add on the side dishes which are very good value. The menu is amazing and the chef changes it every month. all courses are well presented and have something for everyone. The staff are very attentive... More

This place never disappoints. Had a recent lunch and it was just faultless. Can't praise this place enough. Good job I don't live too near, I would never be away. Well done chris and team. You deserve your success.
