This was a pre-arranged stop on our way to an away game at Derby. They opened early for us. Inside it's like a step back in time to a pub from 50 years ago. Small, friendly and decent pub-grub. I enjoyed a few pints of the Harvest Pale. I really enjoyed my visit.

This place needs a shake up. There is no competition in Kegworth and as a freehouse it is sadly under-par. Too many blonde beers, disinterested bar staff and probably the worst outdoor area for miles around. Three years ago this was a real ale flagship pub, so what I ask has gone wrong?

To look at it you wouldn't guess but this was CAMRA Leicestershire pub of the year this year and as both the food and drink are spot on I wouldn't argue.

A proper locals' drinking den with a good selection of real ales to chose from. Busy when I was there on a Sunday, perhaps too busy to get a good judgement.

Proper Friendly local. 3 seperate rooms. 8 Real Ales on top form including 1 mild. Traditional Food menu looks good although was not being served due to weekly Sunday Carvery. Real fire added to homely feel.

Another good friendly boozers pub, good selection of ales served and conditioned extremely well. Good pub grub (especially like the burgers with nearly all the fillings)

They usually serve about 5 different cask beers plus the usual fizz offerings in 3 separate drinking rooms. In summertime there is an extensive outdoor area where you can play boules.

This is a lovely little village pub - you know:

log fires in winter, darts, pigeon fanciers' meetings, kiddies welcome - jumpers for goalposts - enduring image
