Ian Mapp left this review about The Blue Boar

Not the best time to visit - 10pm on a the first weekend night after new year - there was only one other punter - and she looked like she had been there an awful long time.

A single roomed micro but with a pubby feel. Not sure about the patio door keeping the cellar separated.

Maps of old leicester on the walls. An electronic scoreboard lots and lot of choice. St Barnadus and Delirium Xmas Ale detailed at £12.50 a pint.

Maybe thats what my drinking partner had been on :-)

The Blue Boar is a small floorboarded single room open plan pub with a mix of standard and high furniture, some of which is made out of old barrels. The walls are wood panelled, a wooden bench runs along the left-hand wall and a beer shelf runs along the right. There are lots of framed old maps of Leicester interspersed with multiple award certificates up on the walls. According to the drinks list on the TV screen, the bar counter along the rear wall was supporting nine cask and four nitro products during my recent midweek evening visit. I went for Beowulf Brewing’s Finn’s Hall Porter which went down well. The food stretches to rolls on the bar. If you’re looking for love I’d probably give this place a miss, but if a few decent pints take your fancy then come on in.

Cobs, cheeseboards and lots of dark beer. 8 cask plus keg. Our Brass Castle Trinitario (NBSS 4) and Totally Brewed Into The Portal (3.5) went down well. Surprisingly busy for a midweek afternoon with a nice bunch of drinkers in situ. Is this now central Leicester’s best cask pub? Might well be. 8.5

A newish (2019) Leicester micro-ish pub, bizarrely lit in UV as you approach which makes it look more like a cocktail and shots bar. Enter to a straightforward single room. Light wood heavy – floor, panelling and bar. Some simple unfussy bench seating and a couple of large barrels for those who want to stand to perch their beverage on. Tasteful decor majoring in old maps aerial photographs of Leicester. No music; sometimes a blessing, othertimes a slightly weird curse, I got both extremes here in the hour or so I stayed. Nine handpumps with a stock of micro and small regionals at the bar, presided over by the friendly owner. I went for Titanic Plum Porter (NBSS 3), Beowulf Porter (3) and Nene Valley IPA (3.5). Also proper cider and a key keg sampled from Twisted Barrel. Cobs available for 2 quid. I enjoyed my visit here and it also got the thumbs-up from Mrs Quinno too, an evening more discerning punter than me. 7.5 Rated 8
