Description: Holding 2 coveted AA Rosettes and twice named Country Restaurant of the Year, Leicester's Restaurant is worth going out of the way for. Located in the rolling green valleys of South Wales, Leicester's is tucked inside the charming Great House Hotel in Bridgend - perfect for any kind of getaway. Fresh Welsh produce is used as often as possible, and the restaurant strives to use organic local produce wherever possible, including fresh fish caught in nearby Porthcawl. Sample a terrine of free range chicken and foie gras with parsnip puree and house dried figs, or the justifiably famous Welsh beef, served in a red wine and shallot sauce on creamed cabbage. Lunch specials are also worth a look.

Everytime I've visited here I've had a wonderful experience. Food is always great and staff are always friendly and attentive.
A great place to go for special occasions.

“Great meal good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

This was our first visit and we were surprised by the excellent quality of the food on the 'market' menu. Two courses for £14.95 served in a very nice atmosphere. We have already booked a second visit.

“Good Food, great setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Stayed at The Great House for 4 nights in September, ate in Leicester's on one night. Very good service, couldn't fault it. Food was very well cooked and presented beautifully. A bit fancy, but if you are staying there for any length of time, they will cook what you want, even Beans on toast!
Most items on menu fairly elaborate, but were all very good. Only criticism menu a little limited, we ordered the items that we fancied, but didn't eat there again as we felt we had exhausted what we liked the sound of on the menu. If we lived nearby, we would probably visit every month or so, when the menu had changed.

Thank you for your review.
We are sorry that you felt that the menu was too limited. The market menu, which is changed almost daily, should have been displayed in your hotel room to help you have more choice. It must have been removed - sorry!
