The menu seemed full of very usual dishes with ingredients that you wouldn't usually bring together. We chose our courses with a little trepidation .... But the food definitely lived up to our expectations. The beef was beautifully cooked as was the lamb.

Buried deep in the Leicestershire countryside, 2 AA Rosette-awarded Grinling Gibbons delivers refined British cuisine in a fine dining setting. The French Renaissance-style dining room features ornate plaster walls and ceilings along with stately, candelabra chandeliers, while gourmet menus, sumptuous Sunday roasts and an accomplished selection of international bins steer the culinary helm.

Finely-sliced tuna carpaccio leads the Grinling Gibbons menu, and is matched with a cucumber salad, soy jelly and lime foam, while a main course of melting chateaubriand for two, paired with thick-cut chips, a béarnaise sauce and seasonal vegetables heads the meat dishes. A trio of baked lemon custard, raspberry jelly and raspberry sandwich dominates the beautifully presented desserts, along with an apricot and almond tart.

Inside, the pedigree design and elaborate furnishing is a nod to the country house’s period setting. Surrounded by immaculate lawns, pretty gardens and 500 acres of Stapleford Park estate, Grinling Gibbons in Melton Mowbray is a timeless, historic hideaway.

Encircled by the winding River Eye, Grinling Gibbons is a 9-minute drive to Melton Mowbray Rail Station.

    We were part of a group and had a set menu. The food was fine if a little bland but was served tepid which spoiled it. Nothing worse than cold canneloni topped with fridge- cold goats cheese. It would have benefited from being hot, some parmisan or seasoning and black pepper.
    Starter of salmon was pleasant, but very small and lacked flavour. portions of terrine were ridiculously tiny. Bread was good.

    As hoped the food was divine and made you appreciate every mouthful! The canapes were wonderful. I had Pigeon Breast as a starter and it was, genuinely the best I have ever tasted, so tender and melt in the mouth. My wife had the 3 hour cooked duck egg that had her commenting on it all the way through. For main course I had the Quail and again the blend of flavours were magnificent. My wife had the Cornish Cod and again had her commenting on how good it was. (We go for 'fine dining' for me and this is only the second time she has been so enthusiastic about her meal!)

    The ambiance was enhanced by the grandeur of the carvings around the room.

    However, this whole experience was tainted slightly when, with only 4 tables occupied at the time (7.30) a family were seated between us and another couple with a one year old child in a high chair!!! I love children and this child was the same age as our grandson and would never bring a child of that age into a restaurant at that time. The child was a child and screamed and played with its toys as any one your old does. Why were they not asked to dine in one of the other dining rooms and why on earth were they seated between two tables that were occupied and not on the far side away from the diners?

    We were celebrating my wife's birthday and we had a superb evening. The food was perfect in every respect and the staff were delightful. We will return for many special occasions in the future.

    The food was delicious, really tasty and portions just the right size. Linguine dish came with extra Parmesan shavings which was a nice touch. A really nice range of choices on the menu, and it was difficult to pick just one dessert - they all sounded delicious!

    Setting was lovely, looking out across the green of a golf course, and the restaurant had a very relaxed, tranquil atmosphere. Staff were also attentive, without being too much so, and our food came vary quickly.

    To be honest, we are not great fans of haute cuisine and this venue was chosen for its ambience, not its food. We love the entry to the hotel through the trees and all the surroundings. Inside, the lounge bar for our pre-dinner drinks was a Regency-style delight, with its pillars, beautiful ceiling and welcoming log fire. The building is a very fine example of its type and set in gorgeous parkland.

    As regards the Grinling Gibbons restaurant, be prepared to pay a lot for tiny portions, which are beautifully presented. What we had was very nice, except for one dessert containing apples, etc. because the juxtaposition of warm food with the ice-cold sorbet did not work well.

    The staff were excellent - attentive, polite and unobtrusive.

    We paid £130 for three courses for two and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

    The food was good but not good value for money. The starter of crab was more the size of an amuse bouche. Not even a teaspoon of crab. Similar issue with the pistachio sponge. The Sunday dinner was nice but served on cold plates so went cold tooquickly. Nice venue though and a lovely setting.
