From quick lunch to a traditional Sunday feast, the meals at the on-site restaurant tempt the senses with local seasonal produce. Thanks to the large windows, dining is paired with views of the River Eye and Melton Mowbray.
Groupon’s Guide to Leicestershire
Once a buzzing hub showcasing the achievements of the Industrial Revolution, Leicestershire is now famous for its scenic views and rural food: Stilton cheese, Red Leicester cheese, and the Melton Mowbray pork pie. It is not all about the food, though. History buffs can retrace the life of King Richard III and pay a visit to his medieval castle or the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre. New Walk Museum & Art Gallery in Leicester caters to those in need for some culture fix, while nature enthusiasts can enjoy the highlights of Rutland Water Nature Reserve.
