35 High Street, Market Harborough, LE16 7NL
This incredibly popular restaurant, situated in Market Harborough, offers a stylish and relaxed dining experience. Opened in August 2005, the restaurant is spread over two floors giving that necessary feeling of space, yet still keeping the atmosphere intimate. If you are looking to tantalise your taste buds with something different, Ascough's menu will stretch your imagination, enabling you to experience a new and stimulating combination of flavours. Menus change every month and feature starters such as salad of seared scallops, black pudding and banana with sauce Béarnaise. Main courses include honey-caramelised duck, garlic and rosemary potato purée with ivory cream, and are accompanied with fresh seasonal vegetables and potatoes. There is an excellent array of meat, fish and vegetarian options to suit all tastes. Complimentary, home-made bread served by pleasant and welcoming staff is a delightful gesture. Choosing between the delectable desserts can take some time, especially with such mouth-watering treats as passion fruit and mango pannacotta or blueberry and lemon cheesecake. The wine list is extensive and very reasonable but doesn't overlook the connoisseurs who may prefer something extra special. With two courses for only £12.50 or three courses for £15, this restaurant truly is a market leader. Lunchtime also offers exceptional value for money with two courses for £6.50 or three courses for £8.
