It's been 18 months or so since my last visit to Leicester, and on the back of that, I made this my first stop. WOW! How things have changed! Beer range is reduced, the quality is not what it was, and the once popular Oakham house staple, Inferno, is obvious by its lack of prescence.
The decor is now somewhat dingier too.
Pleasant enough barman, not one I remember from my last, distant visit, explained that there had been a change of management about a year ago. Seems that the chap who set this up, originally over the road at Out of the Vaults, had left to go fixing bicycles, or something.
On this evidence, the cyclists gain is the beer drinkers loss.

Second visit to the Pub yesterday and I didn't quite enjoy it as much as the first, primarily because they don't appear to have real cider anymore. There was still a good selection of 10 ales - Millstone Stout, Harbour H Amber Ale, White Park Stumped, Sadlers Spider Princess, Traquair House Stuart Ale, Lymestone Seven Stone Weakling, Burton Bridge Golden Delicious, Brighton Bier South Coast IPA. Dorking DB Number One & Rudgate Brew No. 8 Cherry Pale. The Pub was also much busier than on my previous visit and it doesn't make for a particularly enjoyable atmosphere. I preferred the King's Head across the street and we found other better pubs this time around too. Reducing my rating as this one appears to have taken its eye off the ball.

Long narrow pub, friendly staff on my visit.14 real ales on that tasted good, not that i had all of them, and plenty of foreign bottles in the fridges. Wood furniture and sofas.

Not quite a traditionalists pub, more student bar than pub. The ale (Leatherbritches) was just about drinkbale. Wouldn't rave about the place there are much better alehouses in Leicester. Maybe I caught it on an off day.

I'd have to say that the Pub was our favourite pub we tried in Leicester yesterday. As a drinking environment, it does not rate too highly. The interior is a long, narrow space with the long bar towards the rear and a skylight at one end of the bar. There is a small outdoor patio for drinking at the front, overlooking possibly Leicester's finest pedestrianised thoroughfare. The real highlight of this place is the drinks selection. There are 15 handpulls. Not all were occupied on our visit, one beer was repeated and another had a cider. Nevertheless, the beer range was the most impressive we witnessed in Leicester - Salamander Black Eyed Boy Stout, Her Majesty's Pleasure & Let It Reign, Beowulf Finn's Hall Porter, Oakham Inferno, Dorset Brewing Company Yachtsman, Partners Ghost, Frys Ruby Chough, Elland Yorkshire Lager, Orkney Corncrake Ale & Isle of Purbeck Fossil Fuel & Purbeck IPA. The cider was Charnwood Appley Av Another. It was very pleasant. There is also a good range of world keg beers too, if you fancy something of that persuasion. Well worth a visit.
