Two three course meals and two cocktails for £45 was the deal - there was a choice of 2 gin based cocktails (both delicious) and about 5 or 6 choices per course. Hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed every morsel! Also some delightful canape's while we were waiting to be seated. The venue is lovely and the staff were wonderful. Fantastic... More

I found myself eating squid, goats cheese, mullet, lamb, cockles,broths,roast peach,chocolate tart,canapes, an Amuse Bouche and petits fours. Each course was absolutely beautiful,each plate was a work of art and everything was prepared and served to... More

I enjoyed a lovely lunch here..... And it is very reasonably priced. I have visited previously for a wedding day when the meal for the wedding party was spot on and the breakfast in the morning was deliciously prepared and cooked. As other reviewers have said this place is full of warm character ..... Beware of low door heights if... More

Lovely food,very nicely presented and tasted wonderful,we booked this meal on a deal which included a cocktail and 3 courses,.got a bit muddled with the cocktails. Wish they'd put a star by the items not included in the deal,add ons weren't expected.didnt matter to us but could put a damper on it if you were on a budget

This restaurant is in a beautiful old hotel building, presumably originally a manor house, and the dining room has a lovely atmosphere, even with hardly any other diners there. The cooking is first rate, so it is a great place to go if you want a special meal on a special occasion - or just a special meal.

Good service...terrific meal...with a few tweaks this could be a great place to eat....minuses would be breakfast tables being laid / ironed whilst we were eating ...internal gossip at the Bar ....menu not quite as seen...olives suddenly appearing in the scallops...scallops an additional cost not specified BUT..WE HAD A LOVELY EVENING.

Very good value for money. Food was very attractive and tasty. Staff were all extremely friendly. Loved the little touches such as the flavoured butters-my husband really enjoyed the manuka honey butter.

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.
