In fact I think it was still the Reservoir on my last visit - I don't get to Leicester much. We met some family here today and I was disappointed no dogs were allowed. I thought I'd seen a write up that said they were but we were told they weren't as the owner was allergic. For a pub in... More

Awful experience. We had booked a table at 3pm on Xmas Day - pre-ordered and pre-paid for food. No food had arrived by 4pm so we walked out!

We went for an early lunch on a Friday. The staff were friendly enough, one of them in particular was on the ball, one of the others not so much. They brought menus straight over and took drinks orders very promptly, they also provided our 5 year old with crayons to colour in his menu with, little things like this... More

It sounds as though despite the service being up to scratch, your food could have come out a little quicker! We are pleased that after the wait however, you did enjoy the food a lot. It is not very often we have a long wait on food and if we do, guests usually get told as they sit down. It's... More

Easy to book a table online, even for 9 (7 adults and 2 small children). The food was very good quality and clearly freshly prepared to order. The 'chocolate pot' dessert (a special) was one of the best puddings I've ever had - please make it a permanent!

It sounds as though you had a lovely time when you visited us and everything went very smoothly- from booking the table to leaving feeling very satisfied. The chocolate pot actually used to be on the menu as a set dish! A lot of guests have enjoyed the mini pudding as much as you did and would also like it... More
