Enjoy a gourmet taste of Leicestershire

Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire

Literally meaning ‘beautiful view’, the Vale of Belvoir and Melton Mowbray offer the perfect romantic or countryside getaway for foodies.

The UK’s Rural Capital of Food is a well renowned haven for local produce. The Gourmet Taste of Leicestershire short break captures the essence of the place, allowing you to taste, sample and learn about products.

This includes local and speciality cheeses at The Melton Cheeseboard, beers and ales at Belvoir Brewery, and the famous Melton Mowbray Pork Pie at Ye Olde Pork Pie Shoppe. Then, of course, take some home.

For pure indulgence choose a cream tea at the glorious Scalford Hall Hotel. For lunchtime relaxation, sit and watch the world go by with a gourmet platter at the Michelin Bib Gourmand awarded The Red Lion Inn at Stathern.

Totally stuffed…you will be.
