Muddy’s Little Black Book of fab Businesses

Our hand-picked endorsements of the very best that Leicestershire and Rutland has to offer.

The Little Black Book is our hand-picked endorsement of the very best shops, eateries and services in Leicestershire and Rutland. Check it out!

If you’ve been reading about the Little Black Book on Twitter or various newsletters and have been wondering what the bejesus it’s all about, then you have come to the right place – I thought it was high time I give you the low-down on our exclusive directory.

Since the yellow pages stopped thudding through our letterboxes in I-can’t-remember-when, Google has become the number one go-to place to find local businesses, pubs and restaurants. But, which site should you click on and who should you trust? Well that’s where Muddy comes in! The Little Black Book is our hand-picked endorsement of the very best shops, eateries, services, cultural and leisure experiences in Leics.

It is an exclusive club, and we wouldn’t feature any business we wouldn’t recommend to a friend. Entirely Leics-based and vetted personally by me before anything so much as puts a toe through the Muddy door,

The Little Black Book will be there for you – whether you’re after a lunch recommendation or have a house emergency that only a super handyman can fix. This is the Muddy Stilettos mark of quality that our loyal subscribers, as well as our 301,000 national subscribers will immediately recognise.

We’re excited to shout about those businesses that offer a high quality product or service, a stylish physical space (for those with premises), exceptional customer service or something different, unique and unusual and that sets them apart.

With a fresh new design and new members joining up every week, it will be an invaluable resource that’s also available on the move.

If you’re a Leics based business and want to be considered for the growing Muddy club, just get in touch at So whether you’re looking for great places in Leicestershire, or you are the great place; here’s to getting Muddy together : )
