Decent pub, friendly staff. Very, extremely busy on match days! A bit too busy for me, but the other people I was with loved it. Cheese and onion 'tiger' cobs are also worth mentioning!

Up at 5 and a 5-hour train trip to Leicester to watch "The Argyle " in Leicester today!! Really nice pub, plenty of real ales. And very good service. Met up with the "Midland cronies" and I had a couple of Black Horse Christmas ales, which were excellent. Could have done without the full Christmas music, though !! But hey ho I am a Grinch!!! We got stuffed, but who cares 🤔 😁. Still a cracking day out and we get to go back to sunny Plymouth 🌞

This WAS a pub that I really enjoyed visiting, until tonight. I was attending with my usual group of friends for the pub quiz, when I overheard a member of staff talking negatively about me. Note: I am a recovering alcoholic, and there are times when I relapse. The first time that I attended the quiz, I was relapsing, so I was rather drunk. Thankfully, my friends know of my recovery, and took care of me. Since then, I have had no issue. A member of the bar team, a brunette girl, was loudly complaining about me. She said that I "come in all the time and get sloshed, then have people take care of me." Two other members of staff agreed with her, and encouraged her rant, all whilst I was sitting barely a meter away, overhearing it all. When I confronted them, they shut their lips, and later gaslight me to try and make themselves look innocent. As a Bartender myself, I would never speak so ill of a guest, let alone in front of them. If I notice that someone drinks heavily, or is generally struggling, I reach out to them. The fact that this girl dragged me down speaks highly of her character, along with the two other members of staff who encouraged her 'rant.' I left the venue in tears tonight. I haven't spent a year in recovery to be dragged by a child without a lick of empathy in her. Better yet, why did those two boys allow it? And then try to convince me that they "weren't involved"? Embarrassing. Definitely won't be returning, despite the fact that I enjoy the venue, and the quiz. I no longer feel welcome here. The 'sloshed girl' will take herself elsewhere, hopefully somewhere that understands recovery, and has sympathy for those with former addiction.

Quite splendid traditional pub in the centre of Leicester that offers a great range of cask ales (a dozen taps or more) at moderate prices. The pub is nicely decorated and comfy, and there's a small outside seating area in the back that even has its own TV. Nice community atmosphere, friendly and competent service. All round one of the best traditional pub options in the city.
