    A lovely early-evening family meal at The White Peacock. Friendly welcome, excellent good value food and a pleasant relaxed atmosphere. Thank you, we will bring other family members when they are in Leicester as we know that they will enjoy!

    Really good quality food at a reasonable cost. Will certainly be returning to the White Peacock.


    Absolutely faultless meal at The White Peacock, definitely the best place to eat in Leicester.

    Very well presented, good ambiance and good service. Overall a very enjoyable evening at The White Peacock.

    Excellent all round.

    Excellent all round experience at the White Peacock.

    Great food, beautifully presented and very friendly staff at the White Peacock.

    Disappointing full English breakfast, strange sausages. Egg Benedict however hit the mark. Why no glass of champagne, or similar like American Sunday brunch? Somewhat overpriced.

    A true gem! I used to be a regular at Maiyango, so when I heard the head chef had opened a new restaurant of his own I just had to book a table. I attended The White Peacock with a few friends and we were met with a very warm welcome. The menu looked amazing! I went for the sea bass which was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. I couldn’t have chosen a tastier dish – although my friend’s slow roasted blade of beef looked equally tempting! To finish I had the dark chocolate fondant, which was sinfully delicious! We all had two cocktails which were lovely and refreshing! All in all, The White Peacock was everything I wanted it to be and more, and I will certainly be back!
