    Went with 5 friends to celebrate a birthday for an 84 year old - we could not have been looked after any better. Ben personally explained in detail all the dishes and produced delicious food. We will certainly go there again.

    Always have a great Sunday roast here and love that they cater for a veggie roast as many places don’t!

    We had never heard of this restaurant but went with a friend to celebrate her birthday. We were very impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness offered by Ben himself but also by the quality of the cooking. Our meals were freshly cooked, served hot and very tasty. I would like to go back in daylight sometime to see the views from the large windows.

    Following a recommendation, I popped into Ben’s Kitchen yesterday to sample the renowned Sunday carvery lunch, with a group of ladies who aren’t easily impressed 😉. However, I’m delighted to report that we had a superb visit from start to finish, a wonderful attentive welcome and experience provided by all restaurant staff, the feeling that nothing was too much trouble and, above all, the food was very generous in portion size and cooked/presented to absolute perfection. Thank you to all involved in our little get together and we are looking forward to returning. Ben, our waitress was outstanding and deserves a pay rise for her patience and understanding 🤗

    Used Ben’s for my 50th birthday party buffet last night 11th January and have a say it was excellent quality food. Everyone said how nice it was !! and it was, he was super friendly and super helpful. I also decided to use him as he had done my sons party last year and I was really impressed with the quality. Thanks any Ben fully recommend you to anyone 👍

    Hi all. If u want a great Sunday lunch or any other meal u could not go wrong with Ben’s Kitchen at Kirby Muxloe Golf course. Sensational food at a good price overlooking one of Leicester’s great golf courses. Highly recommended and if u get the chance to speak to Ben u will find a genuinely passionate chef who loves his trade and his customers. Money well spent.

    Came in after a round and saw a full rack of ribs offered as a special. I couldn't resist and what turned up was a massive platter of beautifully grilled bbq ribs! Was bigger than I expected but I had little trouble finishing as it tasted so good. Ben said if you order ahead then he can make sure he's got it in the kitchen. Will definitely be ordering again.

    For years we have enjoyed the pleasure of our family for Christmas Day, however this one day took 3 days to prepare, deliver and recover. This year we decided to all go out for Christmas dinner and having spoken to a number of friends we decided to look at Ben's Kitchen and booked in for a family Sunday Lunch. We all came out singing its praises and booked the Dinner for Christmas Day. I communicated with them pointing out that our party contained children and a vegetarian, I was informed that all would be catered for. When we arrived the rooms and tables were decorated very Christmasy we were offered a choice of drinks, alcoholic and non alcoholic. We were shown to our table, which was very roomy and had an excellent view of the countryside. We all pulled our crackers read silly jokes and put on our hats. The starters were served, all of the various choices were well received and plentiful. When it was time to go to the carvery, we were met by Ben, who gave us a choice of various meats, before carving our selection. The choice of Vegetables and Christmas extras. were numerous. Every thing was cooked perfectly. In a relaxed atmosphere we finished our meals and at the appropriate times had attentive staff asking if all was OK. After the sweets were served we then sat back and enjoyed each others company without any pressure, some of the party went for a brief stroll outside. We were originally slightly apprehensive that we were stepping outside of our comfort zone, however this was an experience that we will repeat throughout the year and most definitely next Christmas.

    Up until recently we have enjoyed dining at Bens kitchen. Unfortunately after our last two visits our view has changed. Our daughters 40th birthday was to say the least a disaster, we were the only table in the restaurant, so there should not have been a problem with service. The food was over cooked, the veg for one meal appeared after the meal was finished. The service was to say the least poor. We were there for over three and a half hours. Our daughters birthday was completely spoilt. The staff and chef kept apologising and Ben was not there to sort it out. We had booked Christmas dinner and were very worried what it would be like but Ben assured us it would be spot on. So we had high hopes that it would. At an expensive eighty pounds per head we expected it to be first class but it was far from it again. After a nice welcome with a glass of Prosecco and being seated at our table of eight we looked forward to a nice Christmas meal. We were asked to go up to the carvery for our main course. We chose turkey which was very nice but two of our party had goose and found it to be very tough and chewy. Most of the dishes had not been refilled ie carrots, parsnips red cabbage and no stuffing,no pigs in blankets my daughter is vegetarian and asked if the potatoes and Yorkshires were vegetarian she was told they were not but would bring the vegetarian items out, they never came as promised.We had tiny hard Brussels, hard broccoli (not al dente). On to the desserts the cheesecake was like mousse and the Christmas pudding was cold with little flavour. The bill came to £640. Needless to say this is definitely our last visit.

    We’ve visited Ben’s Kitchen on 3 occasions, the first of which we were really impressed with the menu choices and the quality of the food. Based upon this we decided to book for Christmas Day despite the price per person being one of the highest we’ve seen at £80 per person (Winstanley House was less at £75 per person). In between I decided to go for a family lunch to celebrate my 40th birthday and as Ben already knows this was a complete let down. Despite being the only table in the restaurant at the time, the food took hours to arrive, our meals were not served together, when it did it arrive the food was mediocre at best, some of the accompaniments did not arrive until after we’d finished the main meal and the food/coffee was served in chipped crockery. The staff did apologise, they rang Ben who wasn’t there that day and we were offered free desserts. To be fair Ben did contact us afterwards to apologise and offered £40 off a future visit. However you only get one 40th birthday! So we were then worried about Christmas Day and Ben was aware of this but reassured us he was working that day and it would all be good. We went with an open mind and hoping it would be a good Christmas meal, but unfortunately it wasn’t. The food was again not great. I’m vegetarian but more than one of my family who had the meat, particularly the goose described it as stringy and tasteless. Again I didn’t experience the Brussels sprouts myself but I was told and could see how rock hard they were when people were trying to eat them. The broccoli was also very undercooked. Additionally some vegetables weren’t at the carvery when we went up for instance no parsnips/red cabbage. There were 2 pigs in blankets available for a table of 8 people. I asked if the potatoes and Yorkshires were veggie and was told they weren’t which was fair enough, but that they would bring some potatoes/veggie stuffing out to me but they didn’t appear. The Ferrero Rocher cheesecake was also a let down, we all thought it sounded amazing but it was more mousse like, very buttery tasting and not much flavour. It’s hard to write this review as I really wanted to like this place, it has so much potential and we like to give things a fair go, but it just didn’t hit the mark for us. We’ve trusted you twice with a special occasion, you haven’t delivered for us and I’m sorry to say we will not be returning.

    Our first visit and it won't be our last. Lovely setting with a good atmosphere and service.Our meal was beautiful. The only criticism is that the bar is run separately to the restaurant.Perhaps a drinks waiter service to your table could be considered. Apart from that a most pleasant dining experience.

    Never had a bad meal, always made to feel welcome, Ben's got the best carvery going. If the mother didn't do such a good roast I'd go every week

    This was our second visit - being the second because we we so impressed when we came on our own as a couple several weels ago - and once again we had a fantastic experience both with regard to service and quality of food We were a group of 18 including 6 children of varying ages from 1-9 years old and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We know where we shall be having our annual gathering next year! Need I say any more.

    We visited back in September in a large party. Our daughter has a milk allergy so we asked our waitress what vegetables at the carvery were suitable, she then spoke to Ben himself who came and guided us as to what she could and couldn't have. Amazing service and really made our experience a positive one. Multiple vegan/dairy free puddings available too! Eating out with an allergy child can be tricky but you made our experience so much easier, thank you 😊

    What a find this was! Thanks to previous reviewers we booked for 11 people a month in advance and still could only be fitted in at 3pm. However nothing was too much trouble and we were able to sit and have drinks in the bar from 1.30 onwards while the birthday girl opened her presents. I had provided table decorations, balloons and a cake and the staff were extremely efficient at re-laying and decorating our table. We knew that the portions weren't small, so decided to just have 2 plates of sharing Nachos to share between us as we were hungry, and then go to the main carvery and save room the the infamous cheesecakes! The selection of meats and vegetable was comprehensive - a special mention must go to the glazed parsnips (OMG - delicious!!) and the cauliflower cheese (yummy!). Between the 11 of us, we had every meat and vegetable dish, and everyone said how good their selection had been. I forgot to take a photo ☹, but take my word for it - delicious! We had pre- ordered cheesecake (in case they ran out before we got round to desserts), they did not disappoint. The lemon and ginger one was so light and fluffy, with a lovely gingery biscuit base, and the Oreo cheesecake did stop some of our party in their tracks - they just couldn't finish theirs. We had a collective groan when out came my daughters birthday cake and we all took a piece home in napkins! We couldn't eat another morsel! Everyone was so helpful, accommodating and we had a lovely day with you. The fact that Ben came over to talk to us was even better and much appreciated by everyone. We are not surprised at how busy you are. Keep up the good work, and I'm sure we'll be back (but only if we book well in advance!!). Thank you again Ben, mum and team.

    We had a fabulous lunch at Ben's Kitchen last week. The food was plentiful & delicious. The attention to detail was second to none and the atmosphere was relaxed & welcoming. An all round excellent experience and great value for money. Well done to all the staff for making our lunch memorable for all the right reasons.
