This pub is currently closed. Situated not too far from the excellent Criterion, the local CAMRA magazine hints that there may be good news ahead for the pub. Hopefully it will have re-opened in time for my next visit to Leicester.

I echo what others have said. It is as if the 1970s were back, only with 1990s prices.

Acorn Barnsley Bitter very pleasant (if a little cool) and at just over £2 who can argue, in an area where £3 is more the norm.

Yes, it is an old geezer's pub, but well worth stopping in for one.

Unusual etention of the sixties entrance with a circular theme leading to bar with pool table on left and what would have been the lounge to the left. Staff and clientelle were frindly and the barnsley ales drinkable and still cheap for a city centre pub.

Whilst it certainly wouldn't win any architectural awards or any for trendy decor, everything that's important is great! Fast, polite service and a lovely pint of Oakwell Dark Mild for just 1.80.

Cheapest & Best Mild in Leicester, OK sometimes its served a little cold for my liking so I order two and let the second warm up on the bar. Great jukebox as well. Whenever I am in Leicester this is always one of the two pubs I go to. Some of the regulars are an eclectic mix but it just adds to the charm of the place. Its like stepping back into the 80s with the prices, so much so that I expect to see DCI Gene Hunt on the next table. Go and set the best value pint of beer in the Minlands!
