Decent Food in Loughborough
I'm going to be spending 5 days holed up in the Ramada in Loughborough, can anyone advise of some decent places to go to escape the usual chain hotel horrors? Doesn't have to be too fancy, a good indian/chinese would be a starting point.
You could try The Basin (by the canal) for Chinese (with a bit of Thai and Japanese on the menu too IIRC). I had a decent/reasonable meal there in April with work colleagues but it seems to have mixed reviews on Tripadviser etc. Good cocktails too, which might help the 5 days in Loughborough pass more enjoyably!
If you had the time/inclination to get the train to Leicester, Kayal is close to the train station there and does very good South Indian food.
A friend of mine from Leicester suggested the following towns which she says have some very nice pubs. I hope you have a car.
Quorn, Newtown Linford, Swithland, or Woodhouse Eaves.
