I enjoyed my visit to this friendly pub and had a wander round to discover an amazing roof garden. There is a front bar area, and a smaller room also served by the bar further back, and a few more tables down the passage where the toilets are. There was a selection of Everards beers plus 2 guests from Fullers-Gales, and Beerd I believed brewed by Bath Ales. Those we had were excellent. It is a good friendly community pub.

This pub really is the diamond in the rough on Braunstone Gate. The pub has been my local for the past few years now having moved to the area and I fully endorse the reviews below which describe all the great things that this pub has to offer. Many of the regulars travel several miles to this pub which tells it’s own story.

The refurbishment carried out a few years ago still looks fantastic and the pub is always clean and welcoming. The pub has live music several nights a week and generally always on Friday and Saturday. The quiz on a Wednesday night is one of the best in Leicester having a good mix of questions for all ages and interests.

There is always the standard Everard’s offering on tap and always at least two guest ales to try. There is also a wide range of wines and spirits to cater for all tastes. Although no hot food, there are homemade cobs with generous fillings.

The Landlord is doing a tremendous job here and he is always approachable. His wit is always at the ready, too!

Quality little traditional pub! I have heard it has had its ups and downs over the last few years but it would seem the current management are doing a great job! They obviously stock the Everards standard beers but its nice to see original on tap, for those moments when Tiger just doesnt have enough gravity! The constant live music and jam sessions just adds such character to this little pub in an area dominated by bars and overly loud music. This small traditional oasis has a great feel weather you go in with friends or alone. And if you're not an ale person there are some different lager choices and spirits...especially the scotch! In general theres a nice little feel to the place and I have made it one of my regular stops as its olde world feel and quality ales make a hard day seem easier.
