user reviews of Local Hero, Leicester

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I have visited the Local hero many times the food is good , its cheaper than cooking at home & no washing up.The staff are very friendly & helpfull. I find it better than going to town free parking for a start . And have also have met the manager who is very approachable & friendly.As for the price of the drinks blame Mr Brown for that.

Bit of a plastic chain pub built in 1997 on the Freemans Leisure Park site next to the Odeon cinema and Mecca Bingo and across the way from Morrisons. That makes it equi-distant between the Walkers Ground and the Leicester Tigers ground.
Itís very much in the mould of a spoons (except for any decent ale) in that it tries to drag people in with food and drink deals (Two for one on main meals, that sort of thing). Unfortunately the beer is only John Smith Keg which is usually just bearably drinkable and the foods not up to much either.
So why bother? Well itís handy for a pre or post pictures pint and as its pretty big (can seat over 200) so you can usually get a table.
However, as they run a system where you have to order food at a designated till at the end of the bar that seems to need the IQ of a Mensa member to operate, the service can be patchy.
And donít make the mistake I did to visit when both Leicester City and the Tigers were playing at home. Now you would have thought that any landlord of a large drinking establishment so close to two sporting stadiums would check the fixture lists and staff accordingly. Apparently not this landlord.
