About the Pub

Large, popular locals pub, still often referred to as the Wyggeston Hotel although accommodation has not been available since the 1950s.

Internally, there is an L-shaped public bar with a long bar counter, with a small snug / darts room off one end, and a large, split level, comfortable lounge with a stage area. There is also a recently refurbished function room, with its own bar counter, at the rear. The beer garden includes an enclosed children's play area.

Meals include carvery on Sunday. Live entertainment in the lounge some Friday and most Saturday evenings.

Historic Interest

Opened in 1904 by Salt's Brewery and named after William Wyggeston, a Leicester wool merchant who owned land in the area. It became a Bass pub when the latter took over Salt’s in 1927, and remained so until 2002 when the leasehold was purchased by the Unique Pub Company, which was acquired by Enterprise Inns shortly afterwards. The land is still owned by the charity 'The Chaplains and Poor of the Hospital of William Wyggeston', which supports Wyggeston's Hospital, Leicester. (The current lease runs for 99 years from 1956.)
