The White Peacock

The White Peacock stands proudly in a fine location on Leicester’s New Walk and its smart facade and interior give it a sophisticated air. Inside, there’s a bar area that is a comfortable spot for nibbles and a pre-meal cocktail (The White Peacock prides itself on its cocktails), while the dining room opposite is as stylish as the grade-two listed building it graces.

Phil Sharpe is chef-patron at The White Peacock and his aim is to provide “affordable luxury and a consistently high level of customer service”. Phil is also committed to local sourcing and is working on a scheme he has christened ‘The White Peacock Growers’ Project’, where he teams up with Leicestershire-based growers and uses their produce in his cooking. Other local suppliers include Paul’s Catering Butchers of Lutterworth and Fosse Meadows Farm (poultry) of Frolesworth.

No children under 12 are permitted in The White Peacock during normal service. This rule may be relaxed by prior arrangement for special occasions.

    Perfect fine dine restaurant for Contemporary Modern British Cusine

  2. Avatar Helen Kenney says:

    Food and service here are extra special and a lot of attention to detail. Only thing to mark down on would be lack of “buzz”, due to the layout and it being quite small but definitely very enjoyable 🙂

  3. Avatar June Webster says:

    Best food ever. Even told my friends of friends to come

  4. Avatar Mike Gould says:

    Always enjoying popping in for lunch. Imaginative food – good ingredients, well prepared, all with excellent service. A city centre gem.
