Travellers' Choice
North was set up by good friends who have travelled the world together. We've brought together our experiences to offer traditional British food with a contemporary European twist, a great range of drinks and a warm, friendly atmosphere. We offer something completely fresh for the area including Tasting Menu evenings, Vegan Specialities, Sunday roast and afternoon tea. Our stylishly renovated bar and restaurant in Leicester is located on Hinckley Road close to Braunstone Gate. Pop down for a cocktail or to sample one of our 42 gins or book a table for lunch or dinner. We look forward to seeing you soon.

North's is in the west end of leicester and has no dedicated parking that I know of. Certainly it's an area of terraced housing. I suggest you contact the restaurant directly for an answer
