If you’re looking for good ol’ British food then you’ll find some great options below – be sure to check out the latest discounts and deals as well to save some money on your next meal out…

Bistro Live

89 – 91 Charles Street, Leicester LE1 1FA
tel: 0116 262 1212

Bistro Live on Charles Street always gets great reviews thanks mostly to the lively atmosphere rather than the quality of the food. That’s not to say the food there is bad, far from it in fact, it’s more that the party atmosphere inside is all anyone talks about after going there!

The Parcel Yard

48 London Road, Leicester LE2 0QB
tel: 0116 261 9301

After taking over from the old Time bar next door to the train station on London Road, The Parcel Yard has quietly become one of Leicester’s premier nightspots. It’s great for a quick drink and has an extensive menu of traditional food as well as Spanish cuisine.

10-12 Guildhall Lane, Leicester

Everyone loves Taps. It’s a charming little bar and restaurant close to the historic Leicester Guildhall, and is actually based inside one of the oldest buildings in Leicester. It also has a unique self-serve draught beer system (hence the name!) and serves excellent traditional British food. What’s not to love!?

The Boot Room is well known as one of Leicester’s premier fine dining establishments, and one of the best places to go for very high quality food.
