Visited for our 10th anniversary using a travel zoo voucher a gift from family. Excellent service, great food (with some complementary extras that we didn't expect). It was fully booked but the service was exceptional. Will definitely be visiting again.

Each course was amazing, with each aspect being... More

After Several very disappointing meals at some of the very highly rated restaurants in the Bridgend area we decided to try Leicester s restaurant at the Great House in Laleston which has also come well recommended, but approached with an open mind having been let down recently. From the minute we walked through the door I knew we were in... More

My husband and I dined here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and what a treat it was. We received a friendly welcome as soon as we entered the building and made to feel special by the staff present. We ordered 3 courses and every one was amazing. Having never tasted fried fish skin before we were a little apprehensive, but... More

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.
