Website.

The pub is found in Leicester, Leicestershire, LE1 1RE.

Unspoilt 1930s style interior, a quiet and relaxing retreat. Serves Hoskins Brothers brewed beers and guests and cider. 2 distinct bar areas. The larger bar counter has 9 handpumps and the smaller counter has 3. In addition real ales are sometimes dispensed on the main bar counter from what look like keg taps on 2 T-bar fitments but which the pub owners insist are real ales in every way. Watch out for pump clips fitted to these taps.

We have visited this pub 15 times, seen 35 different beers and tried 10 of them.
