We had not tried the restaurant before but had visited family in Leicester and had taken them out for sunday lunch. We all had a roast including, beef, chicken and mushroom wellington. There were 4 roast potatoes and 2 yorkshire puddings. The potatoes were hard and not nice at all. They looked and tasted like a cheap frozen potato.There was... More

Tried this after year and half of living in Leicester ... disappointed. On the positive side, service was good, attentive. Wine was good quality. Sat outside as indoors was stiflingly hot. Pleasant terrace to sit on, though the slightly rowdiness from 'happy hour' cocktails time across at Turtle Bay broke into the pleasant environment! Steak was over cooked and dry... More

For starters a small portion of baby back ribs.... Main meal, 8oz prime cooked medium rare with peppercorn sauce, big chunky chips with marrow fat peas and a side salad all washed down with a fine Malbec from Argentina. Great service, very polite staff. A pleasant dining experience in a period set building....... Recommended

Nice welcome. lovely table for 10 upstairs. When you are large party like this they request you place your order in advance from a more compact menu. Service was attentive from the start. Starters arrived promptly and were tasty. Main courses ranging from excellent steaks to very good fish dishes etc all accurately cooked and well presented. There are some... More

I was visiting friends in Leicester and they had been wanting to try this place for a while, so we booked a table for five of us. The restaurant was welcoming and had lovely decor. The staff were very friendly and were able to cope with a fairly loud group of us! The menu was appealing but the food itself... More

This has become a regular location for a meal whenever we come to Leicester. Not sure the service has improved, but the food has always been great. This time was no exception with a wonderful choice of steaks and fish cooked well. We did feel the staff were a bit distant and not very polished, but the food means we... More

Stopped at 1573 with my wife during the day for lunch. Even though we were the only people in the restaurants at the time of ordering the food took a long time to arrive. When it did though it tasted fantastic. The burger was well presented and tasty and the chunky chips were excellent. I'd visit again but hope that... More
