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 restaurant is in a quaint village location. Beautifully festive and cosy. The staff are very welcoming and attentive. The food is tasty well prepared and presented. We had a Confit Duck starter which looked divine, a soup which was warming and full of hearty...goodness. The Mains were, pork belly with crackling which melted in the mouth, lamb shank which just fell off the bone. Desert, well what can I say about the Chocolate Sphere? It looked magical as the hot sauce melted and cracked the sphere, (Never remove this from the menu!). We will be back again. Thank you to all the team.More

I've eaten of Softley's many times and it really is excellent. The food is always of a high quality and very tasty and the ambience of the restaurant makes it a special place to take family and friends. Staff are always friendly and service is...excellent. I would say that the food quality has actually improved even further in recent years. Highly recommended!More

Magnificent evening with fantastic menu and excellent service. All the staff were charming and efficient, the portions were generous and all the food delicious. I had duck confit salad in delicious dressing, venison and hot pineapple in rum with mango sorbet but I need to...come back as the scallops and fillet steak on the next table looked amazing. Very well done to chef and front of house team. Thank you.More

Fantastic jewel in the world of B&B. We really enjoyed our stay.. staff were brilliant and friendly. Would definitely stay at Softley’s again .. Inclusive Breakfast: Superb, really couldn’t be faulted and being varied enough to satisfy even the seasoned traveller ! Resturant: Lovely setting....Evening meal could have been improved with a little bit more care from the chef.. The fish dish was spoilt by covering it with soggy roasted tomatoes making it too wet... Duck dish was good but slightly over cooked and a bit dry.. dessert was so so tasty.. yum x Great bedroom, lovely size and decor.. needed another table to put coffee & tea making area more workable and functional.. had everything else one would need like a fridge.. 1st night was a bit hot as central heating was on !!! Staff were so helpful, room clean.. A big thumbs up for service. Loved our stay wish it could have been longer. .More

Myself and my friend visited on a Saturday evening.We were shown to our downstairs table by a very polite young man who took our drink orders and gave us menus,which was the a la carte & a separate specials menu. I ordered the beef fillet...with Diane sauce and my friend the rump of Lamb. The meat was cooked perfectly as we asked medium/rare and was tender and very tasty.For desert we had the Eaton Mess off the specials menu and the Sicilian Lemon cheesecake,very generous portions and both delicious.Would highly recommend.More

Softleys is a traditional restaurant that’s been a feature in Bosworth for over 40 years and it’s about that long since we last visited . The menu was great we went on a ‘gourmet’ night so could choose three courses from the al a carte...menu for £30 . For the choice and quality not to say the attention that has gone into the food this is really good value . There was also a couple of specials which both sounded nice . Our food was really good we enjoyed our evening very much .Service was just right too . The only but is that if you were going for a romantic dinner the tables are pretty close together . It will it be 40 years before we go back although that probably goes without sayingMore
