    The meal here was ok, I would not say it was great. I like to eat out and do so quite a bit. I thought that this place looked really nice and the menu sounded great, so I thought I would take my mum for her birthday.

    My starter was very good, I had the scallops and whilst they were very nice they were ever so slightly overcooked for my liking.

    My mum and wife had the crab balls and these were very disappointing, to be fair it was just a very watery fishcake.

    My main course was excellent, I had a rump of lamb and it was cooked to perfection and extremely tasty. My mother and my wife both ordered the fillet steak. To our surprise, they were served sirloin steak, which was OK but was not what they ordered, the thing that was so surprising was that the only steak on the menu was fillet. I must have to wonder if the chef thought that we would not know the difference between sirloin and fillet!

    That being said, the service was good.

    Our family of 7 enjoyed a well prepared choice of food in a private alcove, and were surprised at the value for money.

We say…

Experience incredible British fine dining cuisine at an award-winning restaurant!

The Shires restaurant is located within the Quorn Country Hotel in Leicestershire, this award-winning fine dining restaurant is an ideal place to visit if you fancy exploring the beautiful Midlands countryside.

Inside, you’ll find a beautifully open, timeless space to relax in and enjoy a sophisticated meal. The walls feature gorgeous, Roman-esque murals of rural country water scenes and clean, white table cloths mirroring the luxurious full-length curtains alongside the dramatic windows, offering you a panoramic view of the gorgeous gardens.

Enjoy the classic British cuisine on offer here at the Shires restaurant, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. The critics think so, too, as the restaurant has been awared with an AA rosette. Dine in the beautiful restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or sample the lighter bar menu - which runs from midday to closing. To start you off, why not try the roast butternut squash veloute with a goat’s cheese pesta, or go for a dish of perfectly seared scallops with cauliflower puree and bacon. To follow, we recommend the delicious supreme of corn fed chicken with pomme fondant and wild mushrooms. There’s also the bestselling rump of autumn lamb, slow-cooked to perfection. Save room for dessert, though, as the amazing sticky toffee pudding is not to be missed.

Whether you’re staying at the hotel or not, make time to visit the Shires restaurant in Quorn. You’ll love the great atmosphere and timeless dishes, so book soon to secure a table.
