Softleys Restaurant is a Grade II Listed Building dating back to 1794, which offers en-suite accommodation, lunches, and A La Carte dining in an intimate restaurant. Softleys is in the Market Place of Market Bosworth, an ancient town granted a Royal Charter in 1285AD.

Our modern name comes from the Rev. Derek Softley, a Methodist Minister in the neighbouring Leicestershire village of Barwell. When the old Barwell chapel had to be demolished due to unsafe foundations, some of the fixtures were used within Softleys.
