    Friends and I visited Knight and Garter on Sunday for a roast dinner. All in all it was a very average meal and I don’t think it was worth the money. We arrived at 11.55am ready for our 12pm booking. We were given the brunch menu rather than the lunch menu and had to wait 15 minutes from being seated to being spoken to, despite quite a lot of waiting staff and a rather empty restaurant. When our drinks orders were eventually taken they came out in dribs and drabs. Our food arrived and was very average at best. The meats that we had chosen (beef and pork) were all cooked very well and were definitely the best bit of the dish. The veg was beyond al dente - most definitely raw. Nearly all of us left the green beans and carrots as they were inedible. The roast potatoes were nothing special and the Yorkshire was hard and very dry. It’s not a meal I was happy to have paid £16 for. Slow service and sub par accompaniments made this a disappointing dining experience.

    We visited here with friends and were very disappointed with both the steaks and the service. We had 4 sirloin and 1 tomahawk steaks, all were cooked ok but were very tough. The service was very slow with only two people serving. Our second bottle of wine finally turned up as dessert arrived, we refused it and complained about the steaks. The Manageress was very apologetic and gave us a discount. Not an experience we want to repeat with other good steak restaurants nearby.

    Usually come here when in Leicester, there is a nice atmosphere, staff were friendly, we only had drinks this time, but the food is good too. Worth a visit

    Popped in on a wet Sunday afternoon. Not too busy. Lovely interior. Slow and inattentive staff. took 20 mins for 2 coffees because the two staff were attending to one group, leaving all the hot drink customers waiting......and there were more hot drinkers than booze drinkers, so it felt like a daft decision. Lastly, the route to the disabled loo is riddled with furniture. It's an assault course for a wheelchair user. Very poor.

    Me and my partner have visited Knight & Garter many times. The food is fantastic and do a great variety for vegetarians. The staff are always so friendly and can never do enough for us. Would 100% recommend for any occasion. 10/10.

    I came in at the weeknd, we have been looking to this for a long time, the secret door didn’t disappoint. Both me and my partner were really impressed that we got seated so quickly as the bar was heaving, the host was very welcoming. Started off the evening with a couple of glasses of an Argentina’s malbec. To start with we orderd from the “while you waits” menu, all 3 makes a perfect starter for 2. I went for a ribeye which was cooked too perfection!!! And my parter went for the Salmon. We finished off the night with a couple of cocktails, All in all a perfect date night! Thank you

    Came back with family again to give this place another shot and was disappointed to say the least (again) this time however there was more cause for concern. The young girl seeing to us had no real motivation, spotted her chatting to her colleagues and on her phone on at least 3 separate occasions while trying to get her attention for trivial things like sauces and additional cutlery. Can’t remember if same young girl from last time. Was shocked to hear her and her manageress openly criticising their management by the bar. Doesn’t project a good outward spirit or atmosphere. Would say I would be ashamed if I were their boss but by what they were muttering their management was concerning. Food was slow, plates sat in front of us for 25 mins before being cleared. We were offered to pay the bill before even being asked about desserts?! Food is generally ok, but the rest of the package is missing. You’ll come away feeling like you’ve spent your meal in a place somewhat akin to purgatory. Decent eateries nearby that offer a more competitive and friendlier service.

    So I stopped by when it turned out the preffered place was closed. As mentioned the staff were very nice and attentive. However i had a chicken kiev, it was dry and not particulary garlicky and it came with undercooked potatoes. Then it took 10 min from ordering for my cheese board to arrive, at which point i had drunk the tiny portion of port (this may be a personal expectation issue mind... ) chosen to accompany. Also, to be fair the cheese board was very good! Very mixed experiance and I feel they need to focus a bit more in the kitchen to match the price asked in my opinion. Positives and negatives leading to a neutral experiance.

    The table was booked for 9pm for 6 people. On arrival we were told there a small delay as the previous customer were still there. We ordered a round of drinks and were shown through at 9:20pm. We ordered a few starters and our mains. They had run out of most of the starters so just one lady in our party had a starter. Mains arrived at 10pm. Two orders of fish and chips arrived instead of fish pie so two of our party had to wait until 10:10pm for their food. One hour and ten minutes after arriving at the restaurant. I ordered a steak and asked for the chips to be swapped for the side salad and I received just the steak. I had to ask for the salad to be brought and we had to request for a steak knifes to be brought, for the two steaks ordered. We were then eating whilst the two ladies waited for their fish. The fish arrived and the staff simply said sorry. We didn’t see the staff again. Glasses were empty when the food was brought drinks were not suggested. The table water arrived after we managed to call someone over and arrived after we finished eating. I eventually went to the adjacent bar for a drink and waited 10mins to be served. Staff didn’t ask if the food was ok. We were not asked if we wanted deserts so we walked over to where the staff were chatting and asked for desserts after sat at the tables until 11:15pm. The two meals which were wrong were taken off the bill as we asked to speak to the manager, who came over and said ‘I’ll take them off the bill’ and left quickly. The steak and salad tasted nice but I would rather go someone where you feel a valued customer.

    Booked a table for a dinner with friends at the Knight & Carter in Leicester. Easily booked online and no problems on arrival. Really nice atmosphere and very welcomed - the decor is amazing. The service and staff was excellent with no delays at all, and the food was really tasty. What we paid wasn't cheap neither expensive - the average for a restaurante if this level. Obviously, an experience to repeat! One of the best options for a night out with friends and family when your focus is Quality for a Good Value!

    Went in for lunch. Must say very impressed indeed The cappuccino I had was perfectly made and nice and hot( for some reason most places in Leicester think serving lukewarm coffee is acceptable,but not here) Macaroon biscuit just melted in your mouth The bangers and mash absolutely delicious The batter on the fish was beautiful as was the fish Could smell the fish from across the table,was that good Most places in Leicester you can’t even taste the fish let alone smell it Decor and ambiance was also great Felt like being in Yorkshire once again!!!!

    This was our second visit (2) people. This first time we visited for a Sunday roast, the food was nice but service very slow and lacking any attention – we had to go up to the till to pay the bill! We thought let’s give this place another chance, again the food was nice. However yet again the service was slow! The waiter only took our drinks order after we were seated for at least 20min?! food was slow to come out. When we wanted to pay the bill the waiting staff were all laughing and talking by the till area – we waited ages to pay the bill. We would of like a dessert but we were soo let down by the service we just wanted to get out of there and we went somewhere else. Some members of staff seem to know what they’re doing, but others don’t seem to care or even apologise for slow service.

    The food, service and ambience were excellent. The price was very reasonable too. The makeover is fantastic. Well worth a visit. I have booked a Christmas party here on the back of my lunchtime experience.
