Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is our second visit to the Bradgate and yet again it didn't disappoint. The food was beautiful. Service was really fast and the staff were incredibly attentive. Laiklyn was our waitress and she was amazing. She was friendly, welcoming and is such a credit...to the Bradgate. Highly recommend. Thank you for a lovely evening.More

We went to the Bradgate for Sunday lunch. My friend has a disability and a member of staff (Becky) came out to the car park to help her. The food was amazing and plentiful, locally sourced and beautifully cooked. We were given an extra plate...so that we could share a dessert. Staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Prices are very reasonable. We will definitely be back!More

Glad we tried The Bradgate since our local is under renovation. We had a great time with the family, service was fantastic and accommodating. Food was good and home cooked, but more important great value. We went back a second time and it was just...as good. Look forward to a third visit to try their Burger night.More

Hadn’t been to The Bradgate for years but booked a Table for 10 people for my daughter’s 21st. We pre ordered which was fine and ensured no one was disappointed but I noticed a specials board when we arrived which had some delicious sounding dishes....If I preorder again will definitely ask if the specials menu is available.

Booked well in advance as driving 4 hours from the south coast to visit my 90 year old dad and take him out for lunch on Christmas eve. Researched a dog friendly pub and also made reference to my dog in the additional notes section....Arrived at a huge pub with many empty tables to be told that the 4 dog friendly tables were taken as they hadn't bothered to read my booking correctly. No apologies or attempts to accommodate us. Staff were rude and unhelpful. By all means enjoy the wonderful bradgate park with your dog but do not be under any illusion that this pub is dog friendly.More

My recent visit to The Bradgate with friends and a small dog was regrettably underwhelming. Our group, consisting of four adults and a well-behaved canine, went there with the simple hope of enjoying a drink together after a walk through Bradgate Park. Upon our request...for seating, we were promptly informed that the presence of our small dog precluded us from dining in the main area, which was notably almost empty at the time. We were then told that the designated dog-friendly zone, was fully booked. The size of this indoor pet-accommodating space was surprisingly limited compared to the rest of the establishment. Further exacerbating our disappointment, we noticed a table becoming available in the dog-friendly section as a group left. However, our hopes were dashed when the staff informed us that the table was reserved – a rigid stance, particularly considering our plan was for a brief visit of merely 15 to 20 minutes for a drink. We waited for a taxi for the following 15 minutes, during which time we noted that the table that had previously become available, was still available. The complete lack of flexibility or the offer of a temporary seating arrangement until the reserved party arrived was disappointing. Moreover, the interaction with the staff lacked any semblance of warmth or hospitality. We were met with a blunt and unwelcoming attitude, with no effort made to accommodate or empathise with our situation. It was disconcerting to see a customer-focused business display such indifference, especially given the conspicuous availability of seating in the larger part of the pub. In conclusion, our experience at The Bradgate was marked by rigidity and a lack of customer service. The inability to adapt to a simple request, coupled with an unwelcoming demeanour, overshadowed what could have been an enjoyable experience at the pub.More

We called in for an early evening meal on Friday , as we like the atmosphere and the wonderful friendly staff. I wish we could say the same about the food. Fish and chips is difficult to get wrong, but it was awful. The fish...was tasteless and the chips were rock hard. Even the mushy peas had no flavour. Very disappointing. There were only a handful of customers in the building, so more attention could have been given to the standard of the food before just dishing it up.More

Visited family in Leicestershire and booked the festive menu. We ate at lunch time and it was quiet. I would love to know a bit of the history of The Bradgate. A venue with lots of character and I suspect a story or two to...tell. If I was going to make any suggestions there is a need for some cosmetic improvements to the building and interior. However, 5* to the staff. Very positive, engaging and customer focussed. Nothing too much bother. And if you want full wholesome food you will not be disappointed. All three course were plentiful, served piping hot and well presented. The crackers and mini Christmas tree with chocolates on it a nice touch. Only one out of four managed to clear their plate! Great value for money.More

I organised a family gathering here for 25 people and wanted a hot meal rather than a finger buffet. Gary and his team were more than happy to cook what we chose and supplied speakers for the area near to the back door in main...restaurant for some 60’s background music) we had older relatives who probably couldn’t make the stairs for the bigger events room) It was cosy and warm and looked beautiful with some balloons. The food was spot on, having plenty of leftovers to take home! It honestly was the most wholesome lasagne and chicken curry with a mixture of sides. Everyone, young and old commented on how tasty it all was. The staff were so very kind and helpful, I really couldn’t of wished for a better venue. The price was very reasonable too.

When we went for our dinner today, our initial thoughts through walking in were outstanding. The inside is very luxurious, clean and a great dining experience. The service was friendly and we were served immediately by a kind waitress. After ordering our drinks and food,...we were served quite quickly and the quality of the food/drinks was exceptional. I decided to have a Beer Battered Fish and Chips and my parents had a Vegan Burger and Chicken and Bacon Pie. We were served within minutes. However, the wrong table had been served and was a slight error but we were offered a 10% discount through drinks and food and were initially even told that it was on the house. After the error, we were served our main course and the food was incredibly appealing to look at, absolutely mouth-watering! We were all impressed with our meals, however the chips were definitely a let down. They were soggy, dry, blanched in oil and had absolutely no crisp whatsoever - it was like tasting the inside of a raw potato. On the other hand, the fish was absolutely banging and would definitely recommend. As said, you are warmly welcomed by staff and treated very nicely; service is quality. Would definitely recommend a visit.More

After a nice hour or two walk around Bradgate Park, the sun was shining and we headed to The Bradgate for a spot of lunch. We started in the garden with a nice chilled pint of cider and then headed in for a Sunday roast....The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We booked a table for around 3pm and they managed to squeeze us in earlier (around 1:30ish). We were placed in a small room at the front of pub by the bar, which had a nice olde atmosphere. We ordered beef roast with all the works including cauliflower cheese, which was delicious! The portions were big and the Yorkshire pudding was huge! It was difficult to finish so no desert was ordered. We will most definitely be back to try more from the menu!More
