About the Pub

Named after the victorious Governor of Gibraltar when it was besieged for three and a half years (July 1779 – Feb. 1783) by the full naval and military strengths of the French and Spanish. The pubs interior consists of one L-shaped room with skittles and darts facilities at one end, public bar space in the middle and a snug type area at the other end. Conveniently situated to rehydrate passing hikers on Leicestershire Round and cyclists on cycle route 6. However, there is unfortunately no bus service to the village; the nearest bus stop is proably about 2 miles away in Countesthorpe.
