Everards (see entries against Joule's & Robinsons from now on) - Tiger4.20ExceptionalBest Tiger I have had for a long time and best beer in this pub too. Everything in nose, taste, mouthfeel and lipsmacking was as an English best bitter should be

Website.

The pub is found in Leicester, Leicestershire, LE1 6FE.

Traditional town centre boozer only 3 minutes from the railway station platforms. The pool table was the centre of attraction until the early 2013 refurbishment which gave it an Ale House theme with 13 handpumps in sets of 5, 3 and 5 - some of which regularly carry ciders. At May 2013 a CAMRA card holders' discount of 30p pp on real ales and ciders applied but this was withdrawn in Autumn 2013 with a change of management who, instead, reduced some prices for all customers to become more competitive locally.

We have visited this pub 12 times, seen 12 different beers and tried 5 of them.
