I've eaten here twice in recent weeks, once at lunchtime and once for dinner. The food has been very good. The menus are interesting and seasonal and the service is efficient and courteous. There is a calm sophistication brought about by the decor, lighting and background music.

30 quid for 2 good courses, maybe a little bit under seasoned for my liking but just superb value for money

First visit for me but my friend comes quite regularly. Food was fantastic and service was attentive but not intrusive. We ate from the lunch menu which was good value for what you get. Will definitely be visiting one evening with my husbund. If your in Market Harborough this place is a must.

This is a nice place to visit, good service, nice food, but the whole evening is spoilt by time pressures. If you must have two sittings - allocate more time for the first sitting and close later - alternatively, allow your customers to relax, enjoy the experience more and spend more money!! This place will be grateful for business in... More
