Your guide to the best food & drink independents in Leicestershire

Our hometown is Melton Mowbray – the capital of pork pies and Stilton cheese. This inspired us to create Great Food Club in 2011. Leicestershire is the heart of rural England and contains a wealth of wonderful food and drink. Led by our Leicestershire editor Tim, who lives in Leicester, Great Food Club will guide you to the best independent Leicestershire restaurants, pubs, producers and food shops. And many of them are running superb member offers.
