Leicester Restaurant Experiences

Leicester’s burgeoning arts and cultural scene makes it a great place to visit. Perhaps once overlooked as a party destination, its Instagrammable buildings, attractions and annual arts festivals are putting it on the map. In line with the boom in cultural tourism, Leicester’s restaurant scene is stepping up its game!

Home to the largest planetarium in the UK, the birthplace of Lady Jane Grey and the New Walk Museum that inspired a young Sir David Attenborough to pursue a career in natural history, there is no shortage of things to do in Leicester. With so much to see, you’ll need to regularly refuel!

The restaurants in Leicester have got you covered. You’ll find great options throughout the day, from breakfast and brunch to beyond dinner. You could start off with a bottomless brunch or opt for afternoon tea. And if you fancy something a little different from the classic combo of strawberry jam atop a scone you can choose somewhere that offers a little twist. Café Rouge serves up a French interpretation on this traditional treat while Las Iguanas adds its own Cuban spin.

Leicester’s Drinks Scene

Restaurants in Leicester

It’s no surprise there’s so many culinary choices on offer, the county is an official producer of stilton and the city has its own red cheese named after it! It’s equally passionate about its drinks though. Both the Leicester City football team and the Leicester Tigers rugby team have their own branded gins.

With gin tasting and cocktail making experiences on offer, it's safe to say Leicester is keeping up with the connoisseurs!

With the arts, culture, food and drink spheres all covered, Leicester makes a great destination for special celebrations such as a birthday weekend away, family get-togethers, or perhaps a hen/stag/or sten do!
