Housed in a former shoe factory, The Boot Room showcases some of the finest modern British cooking in Leicester. This is a charming eatery that’s been recommended in The Michelin Guide every year since 2011 - a serious achievement. The menu is well thought out and boasts sophistication at every course. Perhaps scallops with crispy pork belly and pea puree to start, then lemon and thyme flavoured chicken leg with baby vegetables and beetroot and goat’s cheese beignets. For dessert, why not see what the souffle of the day is? Such a wonderful a la carte is, of course, prepared using the freshest, local ingredients but served to diners at prices that are competitive. In the heart of the city on Millstone Lane, The Boot Room is a short stroll from the historic burial site of King Richard III and is a restaurant you cannot miss. Reserve a table now.
AS usual we found the service excellent and the food delightful. We would use this restaurant regularly and always go there on Valentine day when we receive a glass of champagn
Food and service were excellent. We also liked the location of the restaurant as it in located in the middle of the city centre close to other drinking establishments.
Went for lunch at The Boot Room first time experience but it won't be the last. We were a party of four and had the lunchtime special. The food was lovely and the waiter was very attentive and accommodating. Really enjoyed the experience.
A lovely meal-had the set Tuesday menu-a great deal of choice on this menu. .Very well cooked and presented in a lovely atmosphere.Can thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
The service and ambience at The Boot Room were good but unfortunately we all felt (our party of 9 people) that the food was a bit disappointing. The starter portions were very small eg the halloumi with a chilli dip is just 4 match stick size pieces of halloumi and a sharing platter for two was just enough for one and comprised too much of the same thing ie., pot of olives, pot of tapenade - same thing really. Two people had steak and both commented they were very tough and gave them jaw ache and the total cost of the meal seemed very expensive at £40 per head (4 out 9 were not drinking alcohol either). Shame as one of the guests had been before and said he'd had a very good experience and so was even more disappointed. Maybe our evening was not the 'norm' but we all hope that The Boot Room is not letting its previous standards slip.
Lovely food and very good service from the staff. I love the building and the atmosphere at the Boot Room, and there is something for everyone on the menu. I had sea bass which was cooked to perfection and my family also commented on how good the food was. We will definitely go back again.
Interesting setting in old factory, which kept some of the character, yet now a very pleasant restaurant. Very helpful staff, as we needed to leave promptly for the theatre, so ensured we were able to order in good time and all served very efficiently. Perhaps slightly pricey but the food in general was very good.
Interesting building, really like the lights hanging from the conduit! Great service, not too pushy but very welcoming and attentive waiter. Menu was good, great wine as expected, and not over priced. Great start to an evening out in Leicester
Food and service very good. We used a Travelzoo offer which was excellent value, but normal prices are rather expensive. It was very cold in the restaurant (they had just re-opened after a few days break). The staff moved us, but it wasn't any warmer. However, we were not charged for supplements and side dishes as recompense.
The food and service for our group of five was excellent. Everyone had something different & we received the food together & we'll presented. If we're ever in Leicester again we wI'll definitely book here again.
