I have recently eaten at this wonderful gastro pub many times with lots of family and friends and we have all been blown away by the food. This is an amazing place for proper foodies. Can only think the people giving poor reviews on here don't know much about decent food! The service is exceptional. We were called by the... More

Firstly, the food is good. However, I just don't get how they can be so incompetent with the service. Don't get me wrong, the staff are lovely and individually, any one of these issues would be forgiven but... 1) Drinks order - New Zealand Sauvignon. Response, sorry we've run out of that. 2) Order olives - nothing happens 3) Query... More

Friendly and attentive staff .Both main courses were good (fillet steak and roast chicken) and portion sizes were just right. We hadn't booked, but we were allowed to choose our table and other diners soon helped to fill the room. However I was disappointed in the choice of desserts, I had the pavlova and it was a small meringue out... More

Friendly staff. Food is nice quality, portions are on the small side so add extras if you are big eaters. 'Share' antipasti was ordered for two but alongside a single serving of the salmon starter & glad we did. I had the chicken breast that was wrapped in (scantily) in Parma ham for main, the meat was moist but not... More

I visited the Oat Hill after having a not so great experience last time with the T bone steak. I got the flat iron steak this time. The meal was great, cooked really well. It was only £13.95 so I was really pleased. Service great as always too. Would recommend.

Went for Sunday Lunch with family. 3 ordered Cornish Grilled Sardines for starter. When they arrived just one small solitary sardine each! Having lived in Cornwall for 20 odd years can honestly say I had never seen such small sardines - as the Cornish would say "Pana brys rag hern?" No butter for my wife's roll with soup,.Bog standard Sunday... More

This is a lovely bistro type pub very close to the centre of Market Harborough. We had a lovely lunch there in attractive surroundings. Looking forward to trying it for an evening meal.

We booked for the early menu at 18.45 on a Saturday evening. 3 Courses for around 15.00pp and 3 choices within each. No problems in choosing..excellent dishes and very well presented. The waitresses were delightful and the balance of their service was perfect..not too much or too little. After our meal we took our drinks into the garden which had... More

The Oat Hill public house serves a fusion of modern British cuisine, with an extensive selection of wines, cask ales, a great list of draught and bottled world beers. A selection of spirits and cocktails to rival any bar in London all this set in the art deco surroundings of this wonderful building with well established & landscaped gardens. A real gem in Leicestershire.
