On a pleasant evening this was a lovely place from which to watch the sunset. After drinks, we moved into the restaurant. Our "table" for eight was a slightly strange shape (appearing to be two different sized tables put together) and meant that some guests...More

We went here on a Saturday evening to celebrate a special wedding anniversary. I think that the Grey Lady has a bit of a stuffy reputation among people of a 'certain age' in the Leicester area as being a bit old fashioned and stuffy. It...More

They have two private rooms and I was there last Friday for my wife's birthday and both rooms were in use. They can do many special things for you, so just ask, but best of all is the food, it is exceptional.
