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.

    Recently dined here for the first time Very enjoyable If you like fall of the bone ribs this is for you The food was great Whilst I may have had slightly better at some expensive venues, considering the price it was excellent value £25 for a 2 person platter & was ample Would definitely eat here again

    A great place to go and meet up socially in a group to eat or simply out for a meal. The food is cooked to a high standard & we've been coming here regularly before lockdown. So glad it's back open again. Keep up the great cooking. Well done all.

    Wasn’t even open !!! Booked for Sunday 12th. The website allowed me to book. And the restaurant would have obviously got the booking confirmation but they didn’t even contact me to let me know it was closed on a Sunday.

    I had chicken breaststroke which were lively but couldn't eat 2. Would have liked option of smaller portion. Son asked for steak medium rare. Came well done but they did do a new one with no trouble. Daughter had veggie burger which was horrible. Other son had chicken wings which he enjoyed. OK for carnivores. No other vegetarian options.

    Excellent burgers, perfectly cooked and good sides too. Felt the Pitbeans were a little lacklustre or they would have been a 5 stars for food. Both the servers were attentive and friendly. Highly recommend this place.

    I came for my birthday yesterday. The staff are so lovely they check on your table constantly so your never without a drink. Only thing that let us down was I asked for something to be left off my hot dog and it was on there still. Overall though it was really nice and a good venue for a birthday meal.

    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.
