Visited here recently on a Saturday night. Decided to try the carvery. There was a choice of three roasts, Yorkshire puddings,roast potatoes and quite a few other vegetables and gravy. It was really quite good. The staff were friendly and the place wasn’t busy. I would recommend it for a peaceful Saturday night dinner

We spent the weekend at the wonderful Grange Hotel on a B&B basis, allowing us to eat out for evening meals. On our second day (Saturday) after Several hours of shopping, we came across Russell’s which boasted of their carvery & early dinner offers (was 6pm) We regularly eat a carvery meal in Leics. so decided to see if we could get a table. We were greeted by a very nice lady who took us through to the back of the restaurant where it was practically empty apart from a table of 3 nearby. We ordered drinks which promptly arrived & chose starters from the menu. The surroundings were pretty dated & a little shabby but didn’t sound alarm bells. Starters arrived... I had ordered melon & fruit salad & hubby chose garlic mushrooms. My starter was ok, my husband who usually eats ANYTHING and always leaves a clean plate ate very little of his starter. He had sliced mushrooms in a creamy looking garlic sauce? He said that it was sickly & tasted like Campbell’s condensed soup with added mushrooms & garlic. I was a bit anxious about staying but my husband reassured me by saying ‘ Don’t worry, I’m sure the carvery will be fine, you can’t go wrong with a carvery. We were still the only diners in the place & went to ‘queue’ . We both had a slice of roast beef (cold) and a slice of gammon which was the only thing that was ok. Gravy & sauces all had a thick layer of skin on them which the chef just mixed in. Veg was awful too, shrivelled up peas, broad beans, carrot & swede mash, red cabbage, tasteless potatoes & courgettes in tinned tomatoes. Stuffing was a strange colour.........really was awful.......I don’t normally complain but this was costing us £40 & I could only eat the small amount of meat. We started to realise why this place was empty when the other pubs & restaurants we had passed were so busy! The nice lady who had greeted us apologised & only charged £18 for starters & drinks. Couldn’t get out quick enough!

Russell’s has been here a longtime maybe 30 years I worked on its construction, I have eaten here a few times and never heard a bad report . For a carvery lunch I can’t think of better
