We say…

Winning the award for 'Best Neighbourhood Restaurant' at the Leicestershire & Rutland Restaurant Awards, as well as 5 stars in the Food and Drink magazine and 2 AA Rosettes, The Woodhouse is arguably one of the best restaurants in Loughborough.

Established in 2005, Paul Leary at The Woodhouse serves Modern European cuisine with a contemporary ambience to match. The interior décor is sophisticated without being showy, making it perfect for both a refined lunch or an evening out with friends. Staff are pleasant, professional and more than capable of lending their expertise to the diner.

As well as the main dining room, the venue was recently refurbished to include private function room which can seat up to 35 people for a birthday celebration, office party or other special occasion. There is also a private table in the main dining room which diners can reserve for the entire night so they can relax and push the boat out without feeling hurried.

Boasting top-quality ingredients and fresh, local produce, the food at The Woodhouse is one of a kind. From tasty Tamworth Pork to succulent South Coast Lemon Sole, the all-embracing a la carte menu has something for even the fussiest of diners. They even provide an exclusive Vegetarian menu with a nutritious range of starters and mains including a delicious ‘Woodhouse Style’  Nut Roast. Diners should ensure that they leave room for one of Paul Leary’s delightful desserts, such as the Cherry Blossom Cheesecake with toasted ice cream, orange honeycomb and poppy seed tuiles; or the Peanut Butter Parfait with praline and caramelised banana. For those who want to experience all that The Woodhouse has to offer, the ten-course tasting menu will not disappoint. The rare Rump Cap Beef with melon, soy pudding, cucumber and lime sugar is a must-try.

Whatever the occasion, The Woodhouse Restaurant in Loughborough will provide first-rate cuisine in a warm and stylish environment. Due to the restaurant’s increasing popularity, booking a table is highly recommended.
