The service and atmosphere were great and we were able to relax both before and after the meal in the bar area. The inclusion of... More

Wife brought me here for my birthday and from start to finish it was impeccable. From the greeting to the gin cocktails and from starters to dessert..........very impressed. The food was just stunning. The amuse-bouche was a wonderful experience and set the standard for what was ahead. We have been to many top end restaurants and this is way up... More

Wonderful food, served with care by friendly, helpful staff. Venue is charming and worth taking the time to read the history of this special place. Will be watching Great British Menus this year to see how their head chef fares - Good luck!

We've been to Leicesters over the tears and really enjoyed the food, today the food was exceptional. Interesting menu ... piscetarian, and vegetarian meal available,... service by the young staff was excellent, the place was good before it just seems friendlier, warmer with a high standard of cuisine

We visited for my mother's 70th birthday. The menu was varied, and vegetarian options although few in number were great in content. The venue is beautiful, small and well presented. The service was mostly great, it was a bit lengthy from dessert to managing to pay but was attentive and friendly. All in all a classy dining experience for a... More

This is our third visit in the last 9 months and it gets better every time. We took advantage of the £49 for 2 offer which was excellent value. The food and service was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Had a wonderful date night at the restaurant last week. This is our third time there. The quality of the food is outstanding, and the staff are very friendly. Lovely choices on the menu. Worth a visit or two! We will be going back.

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.
