We had a great meal, very well made and tasty. But a musty smell and old fashioned decor really let the experience down. The customers were a range of ages. So I think they would welcome the change. Ham hock starter was great. And the...More

Everything about the experience was OK, just not exceptional. The food was of a fairly high standard but both my Wife and myself felt it lacked a slight touch of seasoning. The service was fine and the staff were friendly but not quite attentive enough...More

Lovely, good quality food with attentive staff. Started with canapés in the lounge followed by four courses, not too large but can be supplemented with extra side orders (recommend cauliflower cheese) . All dishes were cooked to perfection and the types of bread offered were...More

An excellent meal, with no hesitation to recommend it. The evening meal, my only criticism would be that my appetiser was a little dry. I ordered a duck starter with 3 diffierent items using duck. It could have done with a bit of sauce. The...More

The acclaimed Regency Restaurant is just another reason why Leeming House is such a desirable destination. The dining room ��� decorated with plush carpets, garden-fresh roses and theatrical drapes ��� enjoys panoramic views of the gardens and lake, and the modern British menu includes favourites such as the pan-fried coley with crushed potatoes, and the glazed lemongrass tart.
