Entropy comes to an end
June 26, 2013
More sad news for Leicester in that Entropy is set to close on 19 July. Tom Cockerill (below, having prepared a South Devon steak and smoked oyster pie just for me – smug grin) said earlier this year that the restaurant was on the market but he has now confirmed the closure. He wants to find a suitable Leicestershire pub to take on but at the moment is still looking.
It’s a great shame for Leicester to lose such a highly regarded and characterful independent, one that had earlier spawned a very high achieving restaurant in the city centre, and as a bar had helped kickstart the Braunstone Gate scene. But nothing lasts for ever, or rather everything moves to a state of inert uniformity (attempted out-of-my-depth physics joke there). Would it be too much to hope that not only will Tom find the ideal place to cook – not too far from LE2 – but that someone else will be along to fill the space left by Entropy?
