Who ever does the staff interviews at Ascough's is very good at finding great staff, who are welcoming, smiley and good at their jobs. Just the right amount of attention not too intrusive. They all seem happy to be working at Ascoughs and it shows. Food as usual very very good. Just wish we had a few more restaurants of this standard in Market Harborough.

Before I race to review a restaurant, I always ponder "what can I write which has not already been written" - certainly, Ascough's Bistro has received its share of accolades - and from our experience, they are well deserved.
I understand that Ascough's has recently reopened after extensive renovations and the results are amazing: contemporary and light - with sufficient "nooks and crannies" to provide elements of privacy.
The menu (regularly changed with preference is given to seasonal, locally sourced produce) is simple, well thought out with innovative treats throughout (I loved my starter of Black Pudding Scotch Eggs).
Portions were generous - with plenty of vegetables and hints of exotic spices to make things interesting.
The wine list was extensive (local wine merchant Duncan Murray has a fair input), with a good selection available by the glass (no Pinot Noir though?)
Service, throughout, was friendly and professional.
Having been away from home for almost three months, and having done more than our fair share of wining and dining throughout Britain, Ireland, France and Italy, our dining experience at Ascough's is right up there with the very best.

This is our second trip to this hidden gem in Leicestershire.Impeccable food and service and extremely reasonable prices.The refurbishment is fantastic and a big improvement on the characterful but cramped former premises.The whole family was impressed and we will definitely be back very shortly.

Well done to the team Ascoughs the new layout is really in keeping with what we have come to expect from this fantastic restaurant
Smart and well designed with excellent taste and good fitments and the food is fantastic too
My wife and I spent a really lovely Friday evening in its first week of re opening with really good wine and an excellent choice on the menu
If you haven't been to Ascoughs it's a must but don't expect to walk in and get a table seems everyone else knows what a great place it is
Thanks to the team and see you in a month
