Changing trains at Leicester and I would have had time for a swift one had this pub been open at its advertised time of 11:00. I waited until about ten past eleven and went back to the nearby railway station for my connecting train.

Steamin' Billy (contract brewed by various) - Sheehans Music Draft Punk4.10Not TriedSheehans is a long established local music store. No brewery provenance on clip so I wouldn't touch it - guessing it is Steamin' Billy though - itself contract brewed at Belvoir

Evening. Handy for last knockings before the adjacent station. Airy high ceilinged with exposed brickwork some of which is fake.

Very large, quite smart pub next to the railway station. Surprisingly un-crowded, given its location, between 6 and 7pm on a Thursday evening. I think I’m right in saying that Steamin’ Billy beers continue to be brewed at Grainstore Brewery.

Steamin' Billy (contract brewed by various) - 14855.00GoodDark amber in colour. A nice, fruity beer with a long finish.
Steamin' Billy (contract brewed by various) - Tipsy Fisherman3.60AcceptableAn amber-coloured, malty brew. Served rather too cold.

Evening - had walked straight past it earlier. Bad news though - all 3 pumpclips turned round as they had run out at the weekend with a mad Rugby rush and had been unable to re-stock. Have listed the beers that might have been on if if if!

The pub is found in Leicester, Leicestershire, LE2 0QB.

A full renovation by Steamin' Billy Brewery of the former Time Bar. An L shaped property with entrances in London Road (right next door to the railway station) and round the corner in Station Street. Opened February 2013 and has a cocktail bar feel with restaurant seating away from the bar. 3 handpumps (a 4th added later) on opening intended to sell Steamin' Billy real ales. The layout is on several levels. Steamin' Billy beers were brewed originally at Leatherbritches Brewery then Grainstore Brewery then Tower Brewery then, once again, Grainstore and since March 2013 at Belvoir Brewery. CAMRA card holders receive the same discounts here as holders of the Steamin' Billy loyalty card.

We have visited this pub 9 times, seen 6 different beers and tried 4 of them.
