Right opposite Leicester’s main train station, Hind & PB Lounge is a gastro pub fit for breakfast, lunch and dinner. On London Road, it’s one of the most popular spots in central Leicester thanks to classic British pub food alongside quality drinks/ good
The Hind Hotel, as it was then know, was erected in the 1870’s across the road from the railway station to cater for the increase in railway passengers. It is situated within, what is now known as, Leicester’s Highfields Conservation Area. In the 1960’s the Hind was a popular haunt for students at Leicester University. It was one of their first venues on periodic three-legged pub crawls and the tavern they attempted to drink dry each rag week. At around that time, and now long gone, a dive bar existed in the cellar illuminated only by candles stuck in wine bottles. Today the pub consists of an expansive open plan U-shaped room with a central bar. An unpretentious ambience is enhanced by uncovered floorboards and real open fireplaces. Out the back are a part tarmacadam and part timber decked yard furnished with picnic tables and three alcoves, set in the former stables block, equipped with tables and chairs.
