The Grange Farm is situated just a little way away from Leicester, straight down the A6 to the south of the city. This charming country pub and restaurant is just close enough to be easily accessible from the city, but is located in a calm, tranquil area so you can dine without the stress of navigating around a busy city.
This rustic, characterful country pub and restaurant has been serving up hearty British food to the local clientele for years now. It’s no surprise that it proves a hit with those unfamiliar with the pub, too, as the 150-year old Grange Farm building provides a gorgeous, authentic presence which houses the newer pub and restaurant. The team nods to this heritage often, as the interior is a delightful mix of classic pub nick-knacks as well as solid, wooden furniture and log-burning fires. It’s the perfect venue for a laid-back Sunday lunch, as well as a quieter date night or casual weekday catch-up, as you’ll immediately feel at home.
The popular Sunday menu is a great place to start if you haven’t tried the food at the Grange Farm before. We love the starter of baked Cornish brie and onion marmalade brulee, as well as the main course of roasts like half a roast chicken with stuffing and pigs in blankets. The other components are always amazing: we’d recommend a hearty helping of the fantastically crispy Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes, honey glazed parsnips and gravy. If you visit during the week, you’ll love classics like the British beef and Merlot pie with seasoned chips, and the delicious wild boar and chorizo burger in a crusty cob. Save room for dessert, though, and try the famous Pimm’s Eton mess, St Clement’s tart, or peanut butter and chocolate cheesecake.
