Melton Mowbray, even the name sounds succulent. This teeny Leicestershire town, just 15 miles northeast of Leicester itself was the wonderful birthplace of kitchen favourites, the pork pie and Stilton cheese. Partly thanks to this, it's been pegged the ‘Rural Capital of Food.’
In light of these findings, eHarmony has decided to put together a culinary inspired dating guide to this delicious little dwelling –
In homage to its past, we’ve started with some fine British restaurants that offer traditional English food. The Anne of Cleves on Burton Street is one of the county’s most historic pubs, with some fractions dating back to 1327 – and the place was actually part of the illustrious Henry VIII's divorce settlement with his fourth wife. With rich tapestries, log fires and creaking old tables, it’s certainly atmospheric. For a daytime date, they do a ‘Pint of Mild & Pork Pie with Stilton and Pickles’ for just a fiver, or for dinner they have a pretty extensive menu of traditional hearty pub grub.
If, on the other hand, you're dating in Melton Mowbray and really want to push the boat out, The Crown Inn, in Old Dalby really cannot be beaten. With gorgeous grounds that cater to walkers and the kind of New Age menu you’d expect from a city like Birmingham or even London it’s bound to impress any matches you might care to romance here.
If your date has a Far or Middle Eastern passion, there are plenty of Melton Mowbray dating venues that could potentially fit the bill. The Panda, on Windsor Street is a local favourite with friendly service and excellent food. Meanwhile, The Thai Sabai on Burton Street, has an extensive and eclectic Thai menu, while The Spice Club, just a few doors down, is a brilliant Indian restaurant.
‘Pizza’ and ‘dinner dates’ have been pretty synonymous for as long as we care to remember, and with good reason too; it’s impossible to go wrong with an Italian! And despite the fact that it’s nigh on impossible these days to walk more than 10 metres without stumbling into a Strada, Zizzi’s or Pizza Express, resist their habitual comforts and instead try one of the town's independent Italian eateries. Mama Mia’s and La Torre both come very highly recommended.
Dinner dates can be scary, but when you’re with someone you really like, someone you could spend an eternity speaking to, there’s nothing quite like them. eHarmony is a leading Melton Mowbray dating site for single folk who'd rather three amazing dates than a dozen average ones. We can’t stand boring dinner conversation or stale small talk; and so eHarmony makes matches based on some of the fundamental things two people can share - and if someone out there shares enough with you, you'll be the first to know. It's a better way, not just to quality dates, but often enough to a lasting relationship. Sign up today, and see for yourself!
