About the Pub

Large, imposing, friendly Victorian locals pub, set back from the road and close to an A38 flyover. A Grade II listed old (1828) milestone can be seen outside the front entrance.

There is a basic public bar at the front, with a section wood-partitioned off, plus a large, comfortable lounge to the rear. The latter has a projector TV and drop-down screen, so it can be busy on big match nights.

Large function room upstairs, with its own bar, and some unusual features: the bar counter is supported by half-casks, and the room is lit by small chandeliers!

The local British Legion meets here on 3rd Thursday of month.

Historic Interest

The freehold is believed to be owned by Wyggeston's Hospital and Hospital Branch, a Leicester-based charity which bought a substantial amount of land in Horninglow during the 19th century. The precise age of the pub is not known, but the pub was certainly operated by Eadie’s Brewery in the late 1800s. Eadie’s was taken over by Bass in 1932. It became a free-house in 1994 until purchased by Honeycombe Leisure in 2006. The latter company was taken over by Cains in 2007. The lease was later sold to Ma Hubbards (date not known, but probably late 2008 after Cains went into administration). It has been operated by the Pub People Company since 2010.
