A few minutes up the hill from the train station. A richly decorated facade with lots of gold gilding and picked-out symbols. Reading over reviews indicates that this place has been refurbished more often than the average town centre pub. Nowadays it is a large space, opened-out inside though there are still some discrete drinking areas. Leicester City blue colours and some newish wood panelling, with some nice patterned tiling at the bar front. Decent enough, but a bit boring and it lacks any real character. In the rear garden are some beach hut style seating areas. A plethora of ales on the bar made me slightly nervous (an alehouse this ain’t!); 4x Everards, Milestone Azacca, Castle Rock Harvest Pale, Nethergate Old Growler and two ciders (interesting ones too in Orchard Pig Ginger & Chilli and Friels) alongside Titanic Stout on keg. Drank the Tiger (good), Everards Old (very good), Azacca (excellent) as well as the chilli cider and Titanic stout which were also fine – so someone is taking care of the beer (it wasn’t exactly flying out). Sampled the food and got a decent return for our money, no complaints with my falafel and hummus burger. Whilst it’s a bit large and corporate, there’s a good reason to put this on your secondary list of Leicester pubs to tick off.
