Aqualung . left this review about The Corn Exchange (Lloyds No1)

I'm surprised none of the reviews below have picked up on the fact that this one is a Lloyds. There was music playing at a fairly high volume when I arrived here late on a Thursday afternoon. As mentioned below it's a huge wooden floored room with an island bar and an upstairs area that I didn't look into.
The bar has ten hand pumps which had the JDW Trio Of Doom doubled up, a cider, Wold Top Wold Gold, the Everard's International Defender and Ascot Anastasia Stout. This isn't a bad selection for a Lloyds but it all got a whole lot better when I noticed that the latter two were "Manager's Specials" going out at £1.70 a pint. Given the standard guest price of £2.35 I would have expected these to be £2.49. I went for the stout which was in perfectly good condition. The cheap pint was a bonus but probably shows that they struggle to sell the real ales here.
I thought this was a better Lloyds than most but only average as a JDW.

This is a 2 floored JDW with an interesting balcony. It's quite a smart pub and there are loads of screens all around the pub. I called in on a Thursday night at about 9:30 and it was pretty busy, but not stupidly so. I got served fairly easily and watched the football showing on the big screen behind the bar. My pint was fine and there were quite a few guest ales available alongside the usuals. It's a decent JDW in my experience.

Was back in again Friday last week for a pre crawl-of-Leicester pint and primarily for the low cost breakfast which can be made even lower cost with a CAMRA card as this gives 20% off food as well as 20p off a pint in this particular 'Spoons.
The other good news is that the overpowering purple interior I experienced last time has been replaced with a toned down pastel colour that is much more pleasant.
The bad news is that the local 'personalities' who stalk the bar area of the Corn Exchange have not been replaced and were out in force at 11.00AM on a Friday morning. How you can get that loopy so early in the day is a mystery to me.
I still like this outlet of the Wetherspoons empire, but if they could loose the local nutters I could review it higher than the average I gave it last time.
