Dean Newman opened his successful restaurant 33 years ago, and it remains a long-standing fixture in the local community. Centrally located and offering an extensive menu of traditional British dishes, Newmans is the perfect place to rest and refuel after a day spent exploring Leicester’s shops and attractions. Set on Market Street, the restaurant is also conveniently close to Leicester’s historic and colourful daily market.
Inside, the atmosphere is cheerful and welcoming, with friendly staff tending to satisfied regulars and new visitors. Traditional café-style tables and chairs and framed photos of Leicester trams set the scene for all-day breakfasts, lunches, and three-course dinners. Newmans is fully licensed too, so you can enjoy a refreshing beer or glass of wine with your meal. Afternoon teas are the latest addition to the well-established menu; why not purchase an afternoon tea gift voucher and treat a loved one?
When we visited, our meal started with homemade vegetable soup with crisp croutons and a freshly baked baguette. My husband waxed lyrical about his main of tender, flavoursome roast beef served with a generous helping of fresh vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy, while I delighted in a deliciously fresh sea bass dish. The fish was plump, juicy and delicious. We followed with apple pie and custard and a steamed sponge pudding, and contentedly rounded off our meal with smooth liqueur coffees.
