Other Places to  Drink

The ground is walk able from the city centre, where there are plenty of pubs to be found.

For those arriving by train, then as you come out of the main entrance turn left and cross to the other side and there you will find “The Hind”, which, though basic, does have real ales.

A better bet may be the Wetherspoons pub called the “Last Plantagenet”. If you turn right out of the station and cross the road and turn left into Granby Street, then this pub is down on the left.

Also not far away from the station in the general direction of the ground is “The Pub” which is located on New Walk. This modern bar boasts 15 hand pumps for real ale, many of which are supplied by local microbreweries.

Just across the road from The Pub is The Kings Head, on Kings Street. Cosy with a decent part-covered patio area, it’s an unfussy drinker’s pub offering basic pub grub.

The Swan and Rushes is another fans’ favourite that can get very busy on match days.

Criterion on Millstone Lane is another beer drinker’s pub – a regular CAMRA pub of the month.

Salmon is another CAMRA award-winner, a handsome old pub behind the Highcross shopping centre.

On Churchgate is the Longstop, another good free house with lots of good ale on offer.

Also worthy of mention is the Ale Wagon, on Rutland Street, off Charles Street. A little shabby, and not one for those who like elegance.

The Bricklayers Arms has reopened after refurbishment, while The Old Horse has a range of ales, a beer garden and even the odd barn owl.

If you want something a little different, Apres Lounge is styled on an après ski bar.

 

Other Places to Eat:

Leicester is famous for its curry-houses: Here are a few..

Kayal on Granby Street, and The Tiffin, are within easy walking distance of Welford Road and are known to serve up a good curry.

The Taj Mahal on Highfields Street is one of the oldest in the city.

If you don’t mind a bit of a walk, the Golden Mile along Belgrave Road is renowned for its authentic Indian restaurants. Recommendations include the Grand Durbar, bobby’s Chaat House, and Feast India

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter
