Restaurants

Bistros, Indian and Asian Restaurants, Mediterranean cuisine – Leicester is a city with a fantastic range of restaurants with something to suit every palate. For those visitors to the city looking for something a little special, Leicester is also home to a Michelin-star restaurant, John’s House. Located on Stonehurst Farm in Mountsorrel (LE12), the restaurant has 1 Michelin star and is run by John, with his brother Tom running the farm that supplies much of the produce. This makes it a truly special field-to-table style of restaurant. The farm supplies a range of meats, vegetables, fruit and herbs for the restaurant and the style of food served is modern, with a real emphasis on the quality of these fresh and incredibly local ingredients. There are four other restaurants in the vicinity of the city that merit a mention in the Michelin Guide, including Stag and Hounds (Borough on the Hill LE14). This village pub has a Bib Gourmand mention, and its weekly changing menu specialises in the more traditional fare with an emphasis on clean flavours and local ingredients.

From cocktail bars to traditional pubs and those serving craft beer and cider, there are plenty of places to grab a drink, many of which offer a range of live music options as well. The O2 Academy (LE1 7RH)  is arguably the best place to go for live music. Situated on the grounds of the university, this is the largest music venue in the city and has hosted some very well-known acts over the years, including Blondie, Bastille and Funeral for a Friend. For theatre buffs, there is The Curve Theatre (LE1 1SB), where you will find big-budget glitzy productions and Kilworth House Theatre, which is an open-air venue which is about 30 minutes from the centre but well worth the journey. The theatre is set in stunning landscaped grounds near a wooded glade. To combat the often inclement weather, there are overhead sails to protect the audience from rain.
