About Black Iron at Winstanley House
CLASSICAL COOKING TRADITIONS WITH THE BEST OF BRITISH INGREDIENTS
Black Iron at Winstanley House is a contemporary British restaurant and steakhouse in the heart of Leicester. Serving a combination of quality ingredients including seven different meats, tenderly cooked over charcoal in our traditional cast iron oven, Black Iron fuses the tantalising flavours of classical cooking traditions with a modern restaurant setting.
Our team of experienced chefs prepare simple, exquisite dishes with locally sourced seasonal ingredients, creating a glorious dining experience. Cooking over fire is a primitive technique that lets our top quality ingredients speak for themselves, leaving you with a newfound appreciation for British cuisine.
Great Sunday lunch with the family More vegetarian options would be welcome, otherwise it was perfect
Great food and a nice venue (slightly strange driving down the drive of the park!) the service could do with some tweaks to match the food, eg appropriate cutlery for each course before food arrives so you’re not left waiting and food going cold/jug of water for table/menu to be explained regarding steaks available by weight. Overall enjoyed the food and would go back for a tasty steak.
Lovely food and great service. Will definitely be returning
3rd visit for afternoon tea, bought my sister this time for a treat & she thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Absolutely lovely meal and staff were great and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble. I Really can’t fault anything and will definitely be coming back! :))
First time visiting and will definitely be back! Wonderful food and service. Highly recommended ***** place!
Great service from staff , I think their names were ben and sam, really good. The place is very nice and nice relaxed atmosphere
Dining here was lovely. Our waiter was amazing (Jake), really friendly and attentive. The food was amazing and I would definitely dine here again.
Really good food and service! Sunday lunch done well.
Great night food was lovely and service was great
Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and I'm happy to hear you had a great time with us. We do hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Black Iron Management
Main course steaks and extras excellent but disappointed in deserts. Lemon meringue with pistachio ice cream, pastry overdone and ice cream was a few 1cm dollops. Mince tart a little better but not value for money , also lacked ice cream.
Thank you for your lovely feedback and we hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Black Iron Management.
Initial service was very slow and our table was almost falling over, once we moved table it was fine
I do apologise about the table and slow service but I am happy to here everything was fine afterwards. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Black Iron Management
The waiter was excellent many thanks
I'm happy to here that you had a lovely time with us and hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Black Iron Management
coke cola flat told waiter apologised didn’t take drink away still charged for soup luke warm sat in back room on our own for a while chairs very uncomfortable main also not very warm wasn’t tempted by puddings
Great Sunday lunch - meat is very good as was vegetarian option and nice to be able to have more gravy as well as vegetarian gravy Only issue was lack of seating in bar so we went straight to our table whilst awaiting all of our party Not rushed despite only having one course and drinks
I'm happy to hear that you had a lovely Sunday lunch with us and we hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Black Iron Management
A perfect way to spend a quality, leisurely Sunday morning. Breakfast in the Black Iron and then a couple of drinks at the bar.
I'm glad that you had a lovely breakfast and drinks with us. We do hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Black Iron Management
I rang to make a booking for afternoon tea for 6 people between Christmas & New Year but wasn't told that it would still be the festive afternoon tea by the lady making the reservation and it was not mentioned in the confirmation emails after that. We were informed at the table & a few people were not fans of the sandwiches offered sadly. It may have said this on the website but I rang to book & it should have been mentioned at that point so we could have gone elsewhere. Most of the scones we were served were not edible either, they were hard & well overcooked! We asked them to exchange one plate of them but couldn't be bothered with the rest and left them. It was for a special birthday & sadly now would think twice about returning for afternoon tea or recommending to anyone.
It would be nice to know the price of the steaks on the blackboard not just the weight
Thank you for your feedback and we will look into this for the future. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Black Iron Management
Good food very enjoyable
Thank you for your kind feedback and we hope to see you again soon. Kind regards, Black Iron Management
This was the latest in a number ... maybe five, or six, visits to the Black Iron restaurant. It follows that I am delighted in almost every single respect with all aspects of the restaurant. I must confess that on this last visit, I was somewhat disappointed with my starter. I chose the Beef Tartare, and it was delicious. The disappointment stems from the size of the dish. A starter is just that, and one doesn't wish for, or require, a huge serving. But the Beef Tartare was tiny, and I would estimate consisted of no more than a heaped tablespoon of beef, artistically shaped into a hoop, so to speak, with an egg yolk in the centre. Delicious, but very expensive, and I believe well overpriced, given the quantity of beef.
Our waitress was Vanessa and she was so attentive really made the whole experience great
A lovely afternoon tea.
Not a bad place good service and food
