Good quality starters and mains, disappointingly bland deserts that appeared to have little effort put into them.

Friendly, if occasionally mis-guided staff - mistakes were dealt with, but in a slightly detached manner.

Would go back, but i wouldn't order dessert.

We have been going to Leigh Bistro since it opened and we have never had a single complaint or bad meal. Always fresh ingredients, well presented and delicious food. A very creative and well thought out menu for any occasion. Staff is friendly and attentive, atmosphere is casual and pleasant and it's very good value for money. Recommended.

Lovely little find along the Broadway... varied menu with so many choices that I need to go back to try the others! Excellent value for money as went for the 2 courses for £16.95 but had a dessert on top. One criticism... my hubby had the cheese board and some chutney on the side would have given a top score of 10 .

Started slow and I was a bit nervous at first about how the evening would go, but the staff seemed to improve as the evening went on and finished well. Food was lovely and good value for money.

Not only was the food delicious and very well presented, but it was also very affordable. The chairs were comfy, which for me is a huge plus. We also couldn’t fault the service, the team were very attentive and full of good humour.

Slightly disappointed because I'd bought a groupon voucher and booked a table, through Groupon, for Saturday 12 May 18. Upon arrival we were told they didn't accept Groupon vouchers for Saturdays even though it had gone through ok with Groupon. We stayed anyway and had a thoroughly enjoyable evening, with good food and friendly service.

It was a busy bank holiday weekend in Old Leigh and as it was Sunday, we thought we'd head up hill, away from the crowds for lunch. The restaurant was pleasant, service friendly and food was tasty. We were disappointed to find strand of hair beneath the dessert my partner ordered and told our waiter who was apologetic. It just ruined the experience.

We always receive a warm welcome at this lovely restaurant. There is plenty of choice and some great offers for one, two or three courses. The owner is very acoomodating for all dietry requirements. This is an ideal place to eat for lunch, dinner or a special occasion. I would recommend a visit if you are looking for great food and resonable prices.

Excellent service and food as always. The owner remembers us and asks about things he remembers from previous visits even after several months of not coming in.

Incredible value, service and personality.

Valentine’s Day!
Food was top quality -
Perfect size portions and the steak was cooked to perfection!

Poached pear for desert topped it all off - we left feeling like we had eaten in a Michelin star restaurant at a fraction of the cost and weren’t feeling heavy!!!
5/5!!!

I have eaten there for christmas dinner before and visited many times. The occasion was a family get together (sunday lunch) with my nan who is 101.

As always the staff were friendly, attentive and the food delicious. The bill was around £100 for 5 people for a 3 course meal which is incredible value so i highly recommend this place.

We'd heard such good things about this restaurant, but we were hugely disappointed. The food was actually pretty good (although steak was very fatty) but the service was poor. Waiting staff were friendly but totally disorganised, with drinks missed or wrong, food coming at miss-matched times and they weren't even busy. We had to call someone over for everything, which isn't such a problem when nothing else is going wrong. Won't go back.
