Two former shops in an outer suburb of Leicester have been knocked through to provide a light-filled bar, spacious dining area & open-to-view kitchen. The result is a laid-back all-day restaurant, where regulars come to soothe their souls with simple food & easy-drinking wines, while friendly, hard-working staff extend courtesies & goodwill. The kitchen doesn’t stretch itself, serving up breakfasts of American pancakes & things on toast alongside the usual full English, before going on to lunches & dinners of steak & kidney pie, ham cooked in hay with poached egg, parsley mash & mustard beurre blanc or slow-cooked salmon in goose fat with golden beetroot risotto & horseradish cream. Full flavours get the thumbs up, while classic puds of the chocolate fondant/sticky toffee variety fill any gaps not plugged by the main event. Tailor-made for an inexpensive drop-in at any time.
