    A restaurant so popular it has its own foodie festival! Muddy jumps on the Boboli bandwagon.

  • Muddy’s fave new hangout, The Priory

    After a stylish gastro pub for lunch or dinner? We've found just the joint.

  • Modern Indian fare at Lilu’s

    Riddle me this; when is a curry not just a curry? Lilu's Indian restaurant has taken the idea of a curry, turned it on its head and given it a spin. The result is a fine dining-esque restaurant with posh Indian food at the heart. Muddy tucks in.

    • Muddy goes vegan

      Move over limp lettuce leaves and dry chickpea burgers and make way for some seriously delicious plant-based creativity at Plant and Bean's vegan takeover. Elasticated skirt on!

        If you lurrrve Italian food but always get food envy from your partner's dish (guilty) then you need to eat at Pesto. The restaurant serves small tapas style dishes, perfect for sharing.

        • The Blue Bell Inn

          This gorgeous gastro pub in Rothley has all the charm of a village local and as dieting isn't on my list of resolutions, I was only too happy to tuck in.

        • Muddy eats at Black Iron

          This stylish new restaurant offers modern fine dining quality British food and a wine list well worth plundering.
