Award winning Entropy Bar 
opens new restaurant in Leicester city centre

Tom Cockerill and Cassandra Soulsby, owners of award-winning Entropy Bar, have opened a new Entropy Restaurant in Leicester city centre. The stylish new urban restaurant features Tom Cockerill’s modern European cuisine marked by the use of local quality produce and a skillful mix of modern and traditional culinary techniques. The result is cooking that is both technically precise yet unpretentious.

Tom and Cassandra Cockerill joined forces with their first venture Entropy Bar which opened in March 2000. They helped rejuvenate the Hinckley Road/Braunstone Gate area by converting the old H North butcher’s shop and neighbouring Worthington’s grocery shop into the award-winning bar. The new restaurant follows in this tradition with the regeneration of a property once used as a joiner’s workshop – a concrete construction warehouse built in the 1970’s. The powerful minimalist design of the interior creates a refreshing contrast to the gritty urban view through the vast windows from the top two floors of the restaurant.

Tom Cockerill, the Executive Chef, has developed the restaurant menu taking strong influence from his work in both France and England. Although a Physics graduate, he decided his vocation was really in the kitchen while working in the restaurants of the French Alps for two snowboarding seasons. On returning to Britain, he has spent much of the past 5 years developing his culinary skills at restaurants across the country including Hambleton Hall in Rutland, The Opera House in Leicester, The Vineyard at Stockcross and more recently at the three Michelin starred Fat Duck in Bray.

Marc Billings, Entropy Restaurant’s Head Chef, complements Tom’s cooking with food that is best described as modern British. His career spans over a decade and prior to working at Entropy he was the Head Chef at Watson’s in Leicester.

In February 2003, Tom’s food at Entropy Bar was awarded ‘Best Pub/Bar Meal’ at the Leicestershire Tourism Awards 2002/2003 and in September 2003, Entropy was a finalist at the ‘Best Pub/Bar Meal’ Heart of England Food and Drink Excellence Awards.

The couple’s philosophy for both Entropy Bar and Restaurant is based on a wish to, “provide a high quality experience of eating and drinking. If you’re looking for a great night out in the bar, a pre-theatre meal or a full a la carte menu in a relaxed atmosphere, visit Entropy Restaurant. We offer great service and food.”
