North Bar and Kitchen

North Bar and Kitchen in Leicester is a sophisticated restaurant and bar that makes its own gin. Owners Sally and Joanna launched North 42 gin in 2019 and almost immediately got it stocked by Selfridges. They’ve just launched a new flavour – Valencia orange and passionfruit. It has an open kitchen and you can enjoy watching the chefs at work!

When we visited, we enjoyed the six-course tasting menu which was beautifully cooked by head chef Joe Latham and his team. The star dish of the tasting menu (although it was hard to choose) was the Bradgate Park venison loin with cocoa, parsnip and grape. We also made sure to sample a North Star cocktail, which makes perfect use of the new house gin. During the day, you can enjoy brunch, light lunches and hot drinks and the full dinner menu is available from 6pm.
