What a fantastic restaurant. 44 of us had lunch before going to watch the Leicester Tigers play and what a fantastic time we all had. We had pre-ordered and everything was spot on the food was great and the service wonderful. Natalie and her team were welcoming, warm and friendly and we wouldn't hesitate to go back. Can't fault it.... More

Went out for a birthday meal with husband and parents. Food was great all homemade and super tasty. And birthday boy asked for Cheeseboard although it wasn't on the menu and no problems at all one arrived to make the rest of us jealous 😊Staff were lovely and attentive even laughed at our bad jokes. Would highly recommended.
