Couldn't be happier with our visit on a lunchtime. The staff went out of their way to adjust a meal for a 3year old. A straight forward but welcomed change. We were delighted and will definitely visit Lesters again x

We live local to this restaurant but had never been to eat here big mistake! We had been given a 3 course dinner voucher as a gift and went on Friday the 10th. From entering the main restaurant reception the atmosphere was warm and cosy and the staff were pleasant and helpful. We were given canapés to start after ordering... More

Booked in for lunch, but I had had a larger than usual breakfast, after a night at another hotel in Swansea., so I couldn't really do the food justice. Leicester's is an interesting and comfortable restaurant in the Great House Hotel. We had arrived early, so had coffee in the bar, in front of the fire, whilst seated on comfy... More

A fantastic experience. The staff were wonderful and very attentive, nothing was too much trouble. One of the party was coeliac and the choice of food and quality was excellent. We look forward to returning very soon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the restaurant to family and friends.

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.
