About the Pub

The best preserved medieval house in Leicester opened as a bar/restaurant in March 2017. The central entrance leads into a stone-flagged passage, and on each side is a small separate elegant room. The corridor opens out at the back into the medieval part of the house; here is a bar area with an old beamed ceiling, and a long medieval timber-framed window on the right. The ground floor is furnished with chairs and settees. There is an extensive and very attractive outside patio area looking out onto Jubilee Square. Upstairs there is a light airy room with an old beamed ceiling and good views over an historic part of the city. This is a formal restaurant with a high end menu. Simpler food is available downstairs.

Historic Interest

Wygston's House (or Wyggeston House) is a grade 2-star Listed Building. For many years it was used as a costume museum. The Georgian brick frontage was built in about 1760. but this is in fact an extension to a medieval house at the rear which dates from ca.1500. One of the outstanding features of the rear part is a long timber-framed north-facing window.
