Got here late on in the evening and it was fairly busy. Nice pub with plenty of red wall paper. There was a good atmosphere and it had the feel of a beer drinkers pub.

The pub is found in Kegworth, Leicestershire, DE74 2FF.

In Borough Street, a tradition here is for the Bass to be served at the table from a jug. Quite food orientated these days. A very impressive interior which has won a CAMRA refurbishment award. The pub has a tidy, friendly, unspoilt feel. There are two cosy front rooms and a back room with French windows leading to the boules piste and garden.

We have visited this pub 5 times, seen 8 different beers and tried 5 of them.
