About Taste Restaurant at Leicester College

Our ethos is to ensure our customers receive the highest level of service whilst enjoying the quality of our food that has been cooked using locally sourced ingredients where possible.

Wonderful experience for our students from Soar Valley College. Very different food and atmosphere to what they are used to.
Lovely food and atmosphere, super service . For me some of the vegetables were a little too al dente and I would’ve liked to be offered some condiments such as vinegar or mustard- however -overall it is a superb experience.
The food was excellent and the service was good and served by very efficient staff.
Excellent food and service. All the staff extremely helpful and pleasant. thank you a lovely evening.
That was a brilliant meal with excellent service. My sister and brother in law are real'foodies', and we're really impressed. Beth was superb! . Couldn't fault it. Well done all, as I know you were short staffed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch on 30th May once again. On our way out we bought 2 packages of bread that the students were selling for charity along with some cakes. When we opened the bread it was solid and seemed stale, we could only eat a piece once toasted, even the birds wouldn't eat it, it didn't seem fresh. This is not a complaint but hopefully constructive criticism that you may find useful for the student bakers. We will definitely book taste again.in Taste.
Wonderful food and experience - I have already booked for Christmas and for next week, having been twice before. Having said that I was disappointed with my brownie last Wednesday as it seemed a little bit stale certainly very hard! I was only able to eat about a third of it and it was served cold, where as I had expected it to be warm as they usually are and a bit chewy in the middle which it wasn’t . The young man who was our waiter seemed very anxious but I understand that he is training . None of this would determine from visiting again .
Taste Restaurant is a great value for money restaurant and a great fine dining experience.
Usual fab time I took party of 45 for afternoon tea and all can't wait for next visit great to see the students trying there very best good luck to all
A group of us have been enjoying the high standards at the restaurant for 4 years now. We all look forward to to our monthly get together so that we can have a good old natter over lunch. Yes the students and staff work really hard at delivering an excellent service with a smile at affordable prices. Well done and thank you. Angela Sutton
yet again another wonderful lunch time meal
Delicious food, good choice on menu. Well presented. Courteous and friendly staff.
Amazing food, great experience. Would highly recommend!
Food as always was excellent but I’m sorry to have to say that the service was poor on this occasion. Three of the waiting staff were messing around, resulting in food being taken to the wrong tables on more than one occasion, our waiter had poor knowledge of the menu (I asked if the mash with the pork dish had the black pudding mixed in with it and was told it did -but it was separate, and as I don’t like black pudding this was important for me). Our dinner plates were left in front of us for a good 10 minutes We had coffees delivered and no teas, had to ask after about 10 minutes for cream and sugar which then took another 5 minutes to arrive, by which time the coffee was lukewarm , and finally, our teaspoons were removed from our saucers before we had evenfinished our drinks, which we found really strange! The restaurant wasn’t full so I’m not really sure what the problem was. This was the first time I’ve had any issues-service and food have always been excellent on my previous visits
We had an excellent meal. Comments received from other members of our group were that it was the best meal yet. We always feel confident of a good meal on every visit.
A very good experience as always! Made for a lovely evening.
As always a very enjoyable meal nothing too much trouble for the staff who are always efficient and friendly.See you again soon.
Menu and service can vary from visit to visit but overall experience never fails to please,
Excellent fish and chips!
