Restaurants

  • John’s House Restaurant

    A few phone calls and a six month waiting list later, I finally made it to Leicestershire's only Michelin-starred restaurant...but was it worth the wait?

  • No 44 on the Waterside, The Arden

    Muddy heads for a working lunch of sharing small plates at the recently refurbished brasserie of this boutique hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon with river views.

  • Sanctua, Leicester’s first-ever fully vegan restaurant

    A plant based menu, clean eating, wonky veg - are you serious? Yes we are and it totally rocks!

  • The Pear Tree Inn

    This lively restaurant in the posh village of Woodhouse Eaves had a complete facelift and re-hauled its entire menu last year. We finally made it down to see if it still has Muddy's seal of approval.

  • 10 banging brunches

    Bring out the elasticated trousers! Hearty to healthy, from prosecco to pancakes. Does your favourite brunch spot make the list?

  • The Langton Arms

    This village local in Church Langton has had a complete refurb. Gone is the dated pub and in its place is something seriously stylish and the food's not bad either.

  • Mother’s Day treats

    Show your mum some serious lurrve and treat her to something special from personalised pink gin bottles to special spa days and more.

  • 31 Below, Marylebone

    You can keep Oxford, Bond and Kensington - it's Marylebone High Street and its new watering hole, 31 Below, all the way for me!

  • Muddy Eats: Paris House, Woburn

    Elegance, class, sophistication...no, we're not talking about ourselves! The Michelin recommended Paris House across the border in Woburn, Bedfordshire aces fine dining.

  • On the Waterfront

    The Encore overlooking the River Avon in historic Stratford-upon-Avon has just reopened after a swish complete makeover.
