Visited this restaurant for a romantic dinner with my wife. We both had nice evening and the food was very good quality and well presented. The only issue was a little lack of atmosphere and character. Im sure most other guests were happy but we normally like a little something that sets the place out from the rest and were... More

We went to dine at their previous location which was very good so we booked with them for lunch in their latest location. Bigger and better than before. This is a great value bistro with delicious food and a good wine list from the good value wines to the fine wines that cost more. An excellent of choice of wines... More

First time at Ascoughs since they moved from the High Street to Timo's old place in St Mary's Road. The service was excellent as was the food and good value too. Nice to have a fixed price depending on how many courses you choose to have. I still don't like dining downstairs where I feel the ambiance lacks something, maybe... More

This was a real treat for myself and my wife, we went on a dater night and the Ascough did not disappoint. I had booked the tasting menu and wine, which by no means was not cheap. It was going to be a night to remember. From the attentive staff, to the descriptions of the wine and each food course.... More

My wife and I had wanted to visit Ascough's for a while, it’s widely considered Market Harborough’s ultimate dining experience. Having now visited for a three course dinner, I am not overly convinced that title is justified. And yet, there’s nothing wrong with Ascough’s nowhere does it particularly fail (stodgy side dishes notwithstanding). The service IS the best in Harborough,... More

Visited this place on a recent Tuesday evening. We were a party of six and we had either two or three courses off the fixed price dinner menu. The food was really tasty; we all had different dishes for starters / mains and desserts and the fish, the pork and the steaks all got great comments. Service was efficient, timely... More

Having spent quite a while searching for somewhere to eat out we came across Ascough's Bistro on TripAdvisor. The food was outstanding. The three course lunch was very reasonable for such good food. Service and ambience also scored very highly. We would love to return!

My husband and I went for Valentine's dinner last night and had a perfect evening. As usual at Ascough's the service is outstanding, the food exceptional, and the prices incredibly reasonable. I almost don't want to write this review out of the fear that it will make it even more popular and difficult to get a table.

Thank Caroline H
