Great experience, thanks to the exceptional service provided by Harry the bar manager and the friendly staff. The venue and atmosphere was great. Harry went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time, recommending unique cocktails, spirits and wine pairings. Their attention to detail and commitment to customer satisfaction truly set this bar apart. Very reasonably priced too! I'll definitely be returning when next in Leicester.

Disgraceful and DANGEROUS! Do NOT come here if you have allergies! Specifically asked for a gluten free breakfast due to coeliacs and were served a suspicious looking vegetarian sausage. We had specifically asked about what breakfast components had gluten in and that they would be taken off from the plate if ordered. We were assured that the vegetarian breakfast (called the garden breakfast) was gluten free, apart from the toast and were served gluten free toast instead. The server was absent for most of the breakfast (morning 17th Dec) and the day before was quite rude when we had asked about having breakfast here (directing us to book online, which didn’t work and subsequently the evening staff booked us into the system directly). We probably should have taken this as a warning shot but wanted to support the restaurant that was part of the hotel we stayed in. The continental breakfast is nice but there were no plates and no utensils to pick up the items. We had to ask for plates and I ended up using a spoon to pick up bit of the meats. The cereal didn’t have separate spoons and the seeds will have been contaminated from people getting their cereal with the spoons and putting it directly in the seed bowl. Absent and neglectful. Due to the level of seriousness of the contamination I would never come here with anyone with allergies or illnesses requiring alternative food choices. The weekend morning staff are clueless and it is dangerous!

The food was incredible however there is very limited options for vegetarians. The deep fried cauliflower was very delicious and something completely new! The wine selection was nice and large glasses. The atmosphere was good too.

A great Sunday lunch with the best service and quality ingredients. The value was amazing with a choice of 2 or 3 courses. This place deserves a massive shout out, it is tucked away behind the bar area at the Gresham and has a great selection of food available daily. The team and service make it for me first and foremost.. The kitchen team deliver elegantly. Go visit and enjoy book ahead the service was busy as the word is out!

The place on it own it nice! They had a good lunch deal! When it comes to the food. Starters: pork belly, it was nice but it was tad bit hard! Main: steak, it was nice but hard! Took me awhile to cut it and very chewy. The salad had too much raw onions which just ruined the salad! Chips were nice Dessert: had the brioche and the mouse!! Loved it!!! Brioche was heavenly! Good service though! Friendly!
