“Started with a whimper & ended with a bang!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We went last night to the New Year Party Night (again) but initially were disappointed. No table plans and bar staff who looked as if they had been "press ganged". The Shiraz (£16) was awful, and the manager agreed but said it was chosen "from above"... The food was excellent but when we asked for more vegetables they said OK but never brought any! The fireworks were good; they get better every year. We stayed until New York New York at 1:30 and really enjoyed ourselves despite the poor start.

“Great eating place in the centre of market harborough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Had lunch in the Three Swans at market Harborough today, excellent value. Serving staff were friendly and helpful with advice about the various items on the menu. Lots of choice for all ages. The conservatory is light warm and you do not always have to book

“Cheap food sold at non-cheap prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely meal here last Christmas so had high hopes, but what a let down!

The bread on the tables was of the "6 white baps for 60p" supermarket type, with no choice.

I didn't have a starter but 'garlic prawn skewers with bread" on another table looked poor value for £6, a few cold prawns stuck on cocktail sticks with bits of sunblush tomato accompanied by another cheapo bread roll.

The salmon I had was nicely cooked, to be fair, but a small portion for £12. Creme brûlée at £4 was fine but similarly modestly sized.

It wasn't bad enough to warrant a rating of "poor" but you can eat much better, and cheaper, elsewhere in the town.

“Been before ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Have stayed in the past and the revisit is due to the warm clean bright hotel , location could not be better on the high street close to shop pubs and restaurants.
