When you’re in the mood to have a memorable time, come down to our funky, family-friendly sports bar and restaurant. We are opposite the mighty King Power Stadium, with free parking at the Holiday Inn Express. Blues Bar & Grill is laid back, and offers a selection of rustic, wholesome meals, inclusive of our signature pulled-pork and slow-cooked brisket. We smoke our signature products for no less than 12 hours using Jack Daniels wood chips, locking in the flavour and providing that melt-in-the-mouth deliciousness. What’s more, we flame grill 28-day-aged, larder-trimmed steaks and have a secret burger recipe that is unforgettable. We apply the same quality and care to our customers and pride ourselves on delivering a standard that’s second to none.

Just a disappointed. Goood was tasteless, no seasoning, tasted like all the food was not cooked fresh, all pre frozen. Not enough outdoor heating. But the girls were lovely.

The food was fine for a bar and grill type place, i would say it slightly overpriced, cost me about £12.50 for 12 tiny chicken wings that were average at best. The music was louder than I normally like when eating bit the drinks were outrageously priced. they only had one ale available and they charged £5.20 odd for it.
Food took way too long to arrive considering, between the two of us, we ordered a plate of chicken wings, a burger and chips each.

My verdict is that its average at best in all areas but overpriced. I won't be rushing back.

Our favourite hangout, we often choose friday because it’s eat all you can spare ribs and chicken wings. This resto baris super awesome the manager/owner is hands on, approachable and friendly. Its the only resto bar in Leicestershire that I know that gives 25% discount for NHS nurses, everyday EXCEPT friday. The food is great 👍 the service is quick and we never had parking issue every time we visit this place.
