Orton’s Brasserie is set to open up as soon as the lockdown is lifted. Their new restaurant in the Cultural Quarter may have been put on unexpected hold but what can we expect when we’re finally able to eat out again?

Being as nosy as we are we took a little look through their website to see what other details we could find out.

The restaurant describes itself with the following, “Food is our culture, we strive to be the culinary heart of Leicester’s Cultural Quarter. Modern British Cuisine Lovingly prepared and expertly served.”

And what about the menu? You can expect a 3 course selection of British classics or instead why not opt for their British tapas? Alongside the food there’s also a lengthy menu of over 30 cocktails!

The main menu includes dishes such as Homemade Ham Hock Terrine, Chef Andy’s Chicken (pan fried, free-range chicken breast served with tarragon infused mashed potato, wild mushroom fricassee and charred corn), Belly & Beets (12 hour slow cooked pork belly, carrot & anise puree, pork crackling served with salt baked beets and cider jus) and desserts including Eton Mess and Chocolate Fondant.

The British Tapas menu choice sounds really interesting. Chorizo Sausage Roll, Scotch Egg with soft centre and black pudding, Parmesan & Truffle Arancini, Baked Camembert and Courgette Tempura are just a few of those that catch your eye. Priced at £4.95 per dish it’s an excellent after work option alongside one their 30+ different cocktails.

Of course we also know they’ll be running a brunch menu and hopefully we’ll get to enjoy what’s left of summer on their brand new terrace on Orton Square.
