Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Blue Boar

I still rate this micropub as the best pub in Leicester. It's a fairly large and simple, square-shaped room, with the bar at the rear. Cask ales and craft beers are all listed on TV screens, whilst real ciders can be found listed at the side of the bar.

With tables and bench seating on the left-hand side and taller tables suitable for upright drinking in the centre, there is plenty of space, even with the usual number of customers late on a Sunday afternoon after the football match. Service from the single barmaid was swift, despite the numbers and she was even happy to make us extra cobs which we devoured on the train back home.

Regular real ales are Shiny Rocky & Beowulf Finn's Hall Porter. Guests were 8 Sail Doomed Baa, Blue Bee Reet Pale, Beowulf Black Cherry, Wensleydale High Fives, Salamander Gecko Gecko, Alter Ego Future Sailor & Mr Brown & Church End Grave Digger's Ale. Ciders were Abrahall's Thundering Molly, Biddenden Dry & Lilley's Tropical Cider. Craft beers were S43 Windowsill of Conspiracy & Alter Ego Stockholm Syndrome.

Fine place. No frills with the bar to the rear. Nine real ales and some craft on the wall. Definitely worth a revisit.

Stripped bare boarded pub, small, many beers shown on big screen. High barrel tables set for standing around in the middle, other areas for goups.
