About the Pub

This was originally a tiny traditional city centre local owned by M&B, which was extended to its current size in 1993. It was acquired by Black Country Ales in 2012 and was fully refurbished in 2017. 12 handpulls serve 7 regularly changing guest ales with 2 varying ciders. Its open fire and roof terrace make it popular throughout the year with real ale and cider enthusiasts and visitors to the local football and rugby grounds. Two changing "craft kegs" and a range of bottles are offered. Seasonal beer festivals are held. No meals, but filled cobs are often available. There is a rear access to the pub from New Walk. Sky and BT Sports shown. Leicester CAMRA pub of the year 2015/16.
