The Pub has been well described already and I'll only add that it is opposite the back door of The Kings Head and is rather like a minimalist long and narrow 'spoons inside.
All the tables have rather grand faux leather menus on them embossed 'Food and Wine'. Inside there's a very short and basic food menu although no mention of wine. Alongside the grand menus, each table has a clear plastic tupperware type box containing condiments. The menus certainly beat the ubiquitous sticky plastic affairs but are, perhaps, slightly incongruous here.
The service was very friendly with the barmaid clearly knowledgable on the beer available, interested in discussing its merits and keen to let us try tasters.
Available on our visit was: Furnace Red Car, Wild Beer Bibble, Bude Neet, Siren Undercurrent, McConnells Irish Stout, Elliswood Best of Both - brewed for The Pub, B&T Mow and Blackwater Expressionist. That's a wide and varied selection and we enjoyed most of those we tried.
Despite the austere interior, I'd happily re-visit The Pub for its friendly service and wide ale range.

Interesting pub on New Walk, a quiet pedestrian street in the city centre (at least it was during my visit). Small looking from the outside it is one long open plan bar inside running past the serving counter. Numerous real ales of good quality.

Friendly, nice place to enjoy a beer, there is also a small drinking area outside the front

Quick revisit over the festive reinforced my previous views on this place as being rather sterile. Quiet inside, unlike most of the other LE1 pubs I observed (including the Kings Head, directly over the way) on my evening visit. Usual extensive line up of beers; my Robinsons Tom and Berry was ok, if a bit lackadaisical. The barman was good with a female customer who came up with an opening gambit of “what would my boyfriend like to drink?” I must admit that I don’t rate this one anywhere near as high as places like the Swan & Rushes, Salmon, Criterion et al. If someone plonked a JDW sign outside for a laugh, would people immediately notice?

Tucked away on New Walk which is one of the more attractive parts of Leicester by a stretch, The Pub has an ideal location. The building’s exterior is an enticing one and a good deal of money has obviously been spent both inside and out. The interior is long, narrow and open-plan with the bar at the far left end, illuminated by a well-placed skylight. It has a very contemporary feel though I must admit I found it a rather bland affair, more like a café than a pub with red walls a slate/wood mix flooring and trendy furniture. I counted 14 handpumps with 12 ales plus a cider spread across them. I tried a couple, my first (Growler) was little sub-standard but a King Richard-themed beer on my second trip up was an improvement. Apparently two Oakham beers are permanent here. There’s also an impressive keg and bottled range. Service was behind the bar was good, no complaints. We settled into the left-hand recess which afforded a little character. Worth taking in for the undoubtedly impressive range but it isn’t a place I’d want to spend all afternoon in. Rated 7
