We were spending a night in the appalling Bosworth Hall hotel and needed to escape to find good food which we found in spades at Softleys. Softleys is located in a fine town centre Georgian style building and the dining is spread among the various rooms meaning an intimate dining experience even when busy. Despite us having no booking, we... More

First time at Softleys although I had heard very good reports. Valentines Day evening and so it was very busy but with a lot of staff on duty everything was prompt but not rushed. The Heritage beetroot with goats cheese starter was delicious and very light. I had the halibut main and my partner the chicken, both very well cooked... More

I held my 60th birthday lunch for 21 friends and family at Softley's today. I chose Softley's for my special birthday having visited 3 top restaurants in the area, for the menu; excellent food; good value; ambiance; lovely location on the square at Market Bosworth; and most of all for the helpful attitude of the staff right from the outset....

We hadn't been before but my wife and I arranged to meet a friend here for lunch. We arrived early and had a coffee whilst we waited. No problem. The welcome was warm and friendly and there were an interesting set of menus to choose from including a Prix Fixe, table d'hote and a la carte. We didn't want a... More

I ordered a goats cheese starter which was light enough for a starter and very enjoyable. The main was chicken wrapped in cooked ham. Vegetables spot on. I have eaten here a number of times before and always can be depended on for good attentive service, top quality and imaginative food in a relaxed atmosphere. Good for business lunches.

Went to Softleys for a works Christmas lunch. The food and service was perfect. Their attention to the whole party - 3 large tables of us - was professional and efficient!

We were staying at a nearby hotel and wanted a decent meal. I found this on Google Maps and booked to reserve a table. We were able to find a car parking place in the area right outside and shown upstairs to our table. We chose a bottle of wine and ordered a 2 course meal. Each course arrived in... More
