This was my first visit to Leila Lily's and I was not disappointed. We were meant to be a party of 5, but for various reasons it ended up as just 2 of us, but this did not concern the staff, who were very friendly and welcoming.
We went for the 3 course Sunday lunch, and everything was very good. We had Tempura Broccoli and Yakatori Chicken Skewers to start. Both were excellent. We both then plumped for the lamb, which came with a delicious assortment of sides, all of which were cooked perfectly. For dessert, we went for the Eton Mess, which was beautifully presented, and the flavours matched the appearance! My friend is Coeliac, and had no trouble finding Gluten Free options on the menu.
We steadily worked our way through the cocktail menu, ending up with 6 each (we were there for several hours, I hasten to add!), and they were all inventive, original, and delicious!
A special mention must go to our waitress, Vanshika, who was an absolute delight - attentive, friendly, and professional. She really helped make our visit a pleasure and is a credit to the restaurant.
I should also mention that the restaurant is clean, comfortable and attractively decorated, with nice seating areas, and clean and spacious toilets.
All in all, we had a thoroughly nice time, and will definitely be back!

I booked up for a hen do and was absolutely not disappointed. The staff were accommodating someone who needed to drop out, they were attentive to us and our needs while we were having cocktails and awaiting all our guests arriving. Luckily the hen do fell on restaurant week which was 2 courses for £15 and 3 courses for £20. The venue is gorgeously decorated and really stylish. The food was stunning I have salt and pepper cauliflower (gutted I didn’t take a pic to remember it) it was so delicious and a good portion. My main was pork fillet with tempura broccoli and the dessert was sticky toffee pudding with caramelised banana. The food honestly highly recommend I will definitely be going again. Thanks so much Chelsea and the team we all had such a good time.

We was greeted by a lovely lady who was polite and showed us to our table. The bar is truly beautiful! HOWEVER I got over charged and then when I asked why I had been over charged he made out I was lying and that he stated what he said earlier was correct which he didn't. I don't appreciate someone lying when I clearly remember what he said about the prices of drinks earlier on. No apology, nothing. It really put a damper on the whole experience then. So just be careful when they ask you to pay and how much.

Visited Leila Lily’s at the weekend for Sunday dinner, and my partner & I were very impressed. The prawn & crayfish starter was delicious, and so was my partners nduja scotch egg. Mains were gorgeous and portions plentiful, lots of lovely fresh veg and the meat was very well cooked. The Yorkshire puddings were absolutely lush as-well. Staff were very friendly and accommodating, the only slight criticism would be that the pepper mills on the table barely worked & were a nightmare to use, and I LOVE black pepper 😂. Other than that everything was perfect 🤩 will defo visit again!

First visit here and we’ll definitely come back! Beautiful interior, extremely friendly and welcoming staff and beautiful food with the best cocktail menu in town.
We booked in for Sunday lunch. You get plenty of food for a reasonable price. The quality of the food was spot on.
If you like a good cocktail, this place has plenty of choice. Might make multiple visits to try every one!
Highly recommend. Can’t wait to go back.
