From the moment I entered, I felt at home, the welcome we received was very warm but professional. Service is very important to my dining experience and it cannot be faulted here. Onto the menu, difficult to choose, as the options are... More

Visited in January with my partner and brother In law. This was the third time I have eaten there. Twice at lunchtime and this time in the evening. The food is amazing and the best in Bridgend. If you would like something different give it a go. Service as always be very attentive and professional. Can't recommend enough

My brothers' and I went with Mum for Christmas treat It was perfect. The waiter as attentive without being intrusive. He listened and responded appropriately. The setting was ideal, no intrusive music or road noises The menu was so good we didn't need the a la carte. It was spot on. Go again ? Definitely!

Booked a group for Christmas lunch. We asked and were promised one table for us all. Reality was 2 round tables and our group were therefore split. Food was ok hence the score of 3 stars, but very little atmosphere. Drinks were overly pricy. Not really what we were looking for in a Christmas party. We left fairly soon after... More

Two three course meals and two cocktails for £45 was the deal - there was a choice of 2 gin based cocktails (both delicious) and about 5 or 6 choices per course. Hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed every morsel! Also some delightful canape's while we were waiting to be seated. The venue is lovely and the staff were wonderful. Fantastic... More

My daughter and I both had this. There was nothing on the menu I would usually order,being generally conservative when it comes to food. I found myself eating squid, goats cheese, mullet, lamb, cockles,broths,roast peach,chocolate tart,canapes, an Amuse Bouche and petits fours. Each course was absolutely beautiful,each plate was a work of art and everything was prepared and served to... More

I have visited previously for a wedding day when the meal for the wedding party was spot on and the breakfast in the morning was deliciously prepared and cooked.

Description
Leicester's Restaurant is tucked inside the charming Great House Hotel in Bridgend, in the rolling green valleys of South Wales, perfect for any kind of getaway. Holding 2 coveted AA Rosettes and twice named Country Restaurant of the Year, Leicester's Restaurant is worth going out of the way for. Fresh Welsh products are used as often as possible, and the restaurant strives to use organic local produce wherever possible, including fresh fish caught in nearby Porthcawl. Sample a terrine of free range chicken and foie gras with parsnip puree and house dried figs, or the justifiably famous Welsh beef, served in a red wine and shallot sauce on creamed cabbage. Lunch specials are also worth a look.
