NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

Under this stage of the roadmap in England pubs can only open outdoor areas and many will only be open for customers who have pre-booked. Alcohol can now also be sold for takeaway, as well as delivery.

But please be aware that opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting feedback on the pub.


We will be offering a click and collect and a delivery service. More information will be forthcoming as we work out how it'll all work. See Facebook page for updated details.

About the Pub

The premises exudes an unpretentious ambience enhanced by bare unwrought timber floorboards, exposed ceiling joists braced with traditional timber herringbone strutting, a small free standing log burning stove and ornamental turned spindles in the balustrade to the open staircase leading up to additional first floor seating area and toilets. The bar is in keeping with its setting, being built of rustic timber front and side, with a thick slab of waney edge beech as the counter. Behind the bar, beer is dispensed straight from the casks, which sit on automatic tilting stillages in a Perspex fronted cooler cabinet with only the taps poking through. As well as the five cask beers, there is also a range of 'craft' kegs, cans and bottles. No meals, but cobs are often available.

Historic Interest

In January 2017, this pub opened in premises formerly occupied by Wigston Bargain Store, which itself replaced an amusement arcade in a battery of shops built some years ago, as part of a redevelopment which replaced terraced housing.
