This proudly independent, family owned eatery situated on Leicester’s bustling Market Street has been a go-to spot for tired shoppers and busy city workers for over 30 years. Since opening, the team has honed a menu of classic dishes, a welcoming atmosphere and a commitment to fast and friendly service.
When Dean and Christine Newman opened the restaurant back in 1986, their aim was to serve quality, homemade food at reasonable prices – a philosophy that’s still very much evident today. The team is renowned for its first-class breakfasts, fresh roast dinners, and homemade soups. My mushroom stroganoff was rich and flavoursome and served with seasonal vegetables. My companion enjoyed the breaded plaice – a simple dish that was expertly executed.
A frequently updated specials board, several children’s options, and a range of wine, beer and liqueur coffee complete the menu. Just make sure you save room for dessert. With options ranging from traditional favourites such as apple pie and sticky toffee pudding to ice cream and a range of handmade cakes, those with a sweet-tooth won’t be disappointed.
Newmans is the perfect pit-stop for those looking for a tasty bite to eat in an informal environment. Whether you’re looking for a hearty family meal, a quick brunch to fuel a shopping trip or a leisurely three-course lunch with wine, this friendly restaurant has it covered.
