About the Pub

Micropub opened in 2016 on the ground floor of a building in a conservation area previously used as offices. There is a single light airy room with a bar opposite as you enter. Behind the counter, through a glass partition, the cellar may be viewed. Board games and reading material may be found on shelves, and there are displays of old maps of Leicester around the walls. Guest beers are sourced from microbreweries around the country and include many rare beers. A full range of Samuel Smith's bottled beers is also available. Oversize glasses ensure customers get a full pint. No meals, but local pork pies and well-filled cheese or ham cobs are sold.
