Was a major music venue.

Now a supermarket.

To me this pub has been very lack lustre for ages, and will probably disappear quite soon.....

I was most impressed with the Charlotte. I'm told that it's now run by the people that used to run The Pub. 6 ales were on, plus a cider - Rudgate Brew No. 1 Vanilla Mild, Elwoods Puff, Tring Side Pocket For A Toad, Salopian Pathfinder, Grafters Cascade & Buck Pendeen American Pale. The cider was Joe's Dry - not one I'd had before. The interior of this pub has been stripped back to a minimum. But the atmosphere was good, with plenty of singing from the Leicester fans. It's fairly small and has the feel of a micropub. A good option and easy to combine with the Criterion.

Reopened again recently. Maybe worth a look for nostalgia but probably not for repeat visits. I can't comment on the quality of the cask beer as a couple of times I've visited they weren't ready to be served.

Reopened. For how long is anyone's guess. Rumored to be turned into flats sometime in the next twelve months.

I'm sad it's shut - this was a classic on the 'toilet venue' circuit, and a cracking place for gig (according to Mrs Quinno who was a regular here in her mis-spent youth).

Well it's shut now anyway for the time being so you won't have the delights...

This is not a pub. It used to be a pub until about ten years ago when the interior was ripped out. Many years ago you could sup an excellent pint of Boddingtons before paying to go into the venue at the back to see the latest band John Peel was spinning. It's now a dark damp gig venue that sells revolting lager at rip-off prices. Often holds gigs for under 18s, who then stand around the corner outside and tank themselves up on alcopops and cider until they vomit and the police are called.
If you do find a band on at this venue you want to see then you'd be well advised to go the Criterion first for some decent ale.
