I buy my meat in this butchers but it has never tasted as bad as this. I ordered a plain burger! How could a chef get... More

The Emigma is my favourite pub in Harborough. We always manage to find a table, the staff are always very friendly and the atmosphere is good to meet friends for a drink, meal and a chat.

We stopped in for the breakfast, 2 for £7.95. We were not sure what it would be like, this was our first time for breakfast. When we saw the plate we new we would struggle. I managed but only just. It was great.

This is a nice little place to go for a quick coffee or beer in the evenings but the opening hours are a bit iffy, they close early some days and others it's closed completely. The prices are good with the offers but here's the problem. They're usually not very busy when we go in but instead of encouraging customers... More

My children and I stopped at Enigma today for hot chocolates. Oh my gosh, they are absolutely delicious. The hot chocolate is covered in cream, laden with marshmallows on the drink and on the saucer, along with a beautiful biscuit. My children and I loved the drink. The staff were excellent. I will return for lunch there shortly, as the... More
