Summer Food Fest at Highcross Leicester



It's the last week of the school summer holidays here in Leicester. And what better way to spend it, then treating the kids to some yummy food! Highcross Leicester are celebrating all that's good to eat with some fantastic offers and discounts at their amazing eateries.
Grab the kids, download the Highcross PLUS app and head down to the Highcross to snap up those discounts while you can! 
I was invited down with a few other local blogger ladies to enjoy some of what Highcross' finest have to offer.
We started off in Pizza Express to enjoy a table full of starters including antipasto, calamari, bruschetta and of course some garlic dough balls [as you CANNOT visit Pizza Express without demolishing a plate of dough balls! ;)].  It's a great restaurant and the food is always on point!

Next we moved on to Bills for mains. Now, if you've been to Bills before, you'll understand when I say how beautiful it is, totally instagrammable! ;) The staff were super accommodating and told us how we were about to be treated to their famous Fish Finger Sandwich, and the story behind it. And let me tell you, it looked and tasted SO GOOD. Perfectly thick, toasted bread with crispy cod fingers, tartare sauce, rocket and ketchup, accompanied by skinny fries. I couldn't finish it, it was so filling! I'll definitely be back for another in the future though, it was truly delicious! We happily washed them down with a gorgeous cocktail.

The ladies then moved onto Ed's Diner for dessert but I had to rush off to work but I popped back at a later date to see what they had in store for me. We're big fans of Ed's Diner, my eldest is a huge fan of their shakes and I'm rather partial to them too! I took the Mr along with me and we were both treated to a malt shake, I went for Reese's while James had Nutella. I'd never tried a Reese's shake before and it tasted ah-may-zing!! Since I have a crazy sweet tooth, I was a huge fan!

And this is just a handful of the fantastic places to eat. Highcross offer a choice of stylish restaurants, cafes and places to grab a snack, so if you're picking up the last bits of the school uniforms with the kids, rest assured you have plenty of great places to choose from to refuel!

Don't forget to check out the offers on the Highcross PLUS app including kids eat for 25p in Byron, 15% off YO! Sushi & kids eat for free at Handmade Burger just to name a few!

  3. We're in Canada so, unfortunately, can't visit these places any time soon. However, there is a place near us that looks almost exactly the same as your Ed's Diner. These 50's diners seem to be rather popular these days. #fortheloveofBLOG
