Enjoyed a business dinner here. Friendly reception in bar area by attentive staff. Great muse bouche. Nice atmosphere in restaurant and busy for a Monday night. Waiting staff from local sixth form and efficient and polite. Food was delicious, the hale cooked to perfection. House wine was affordable and hit the spot. Enjoyable with lots of nice touches.

My wife and I were lucky enough to enjoy a beautiful three course meal at this hidden gem of a hotel. The hotel's restaurant is very attractive with attentive staff and an impressive menu. We will be back and will certainly recommend others do like wise.

From the moment we arrived we were looked after. The attention by the staff was faultless as was the whole experience. The ambience of the place was so calm and unhurried. Very relaxing atmosphere in a tastefully furnished building. The food was 1st class, well presented all in all a real culinary experience. A good wine selection and not overpriced.... More

Average Sunday lunch. Those that had beef including myself found the beef to be more fat and connective tissue but thumbs up for deserts.

The canapés with our first drink were a nice touch . The menu was varied and the food delicious . The service was delivered by inexperienced staff. Pleasant but no finesse ! While we were eating, a workman was brought into the dining room for what seemed like to price up a job ! Not very professional ! The food... More

Bought a Travelzoo voucher and was not disappointed! The food and service were excellent even though they were busy and had a large party in the function room. The food was beautifully presented and full of flavour. Nice touches of canapé while you wait and when we mentioned it was our anniversary we had complimentary home made chocolates after our...

Description
Leicester's Restaurant is tucked inside the charming Great House Hotel in Bridgend, in the rolling green valleys of South Wales, perfect for any kind of getaway. Holding 2 coveted AA Rosettes and twice named Country Restaurant of the Year, Leicester's Restaurant is worth going out of the way for. Fresh Welsh products are 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.
