Millstone Lane is the place to go in Leicester for beer lovers. The Blue Boar is a friendly micro pub with a big range of well kept real ales. In October there was a good range of autumnal stouts and porters ( Titanic Milk Stout exemplary) as well as lighter pales, ruby and wheat beers. This was a stroll from my hotel and only paces from the Two Tailed Lion which is even smaller inside but still welcoming to a stranger and a smaller but still fine choice of beers including many bottles.

On recommendation from a friend I wandered in here. This is the pub I would have. Real ale, proper pub food, I.e. cobs, cheese, pork pie, crisps, nuts, scratchings, real cider . No music, clean loos. End of. Bet this place rocks. 5 stars is not enough.

Dropped by with my son for a couple of pints before the Leicester v Fulham match. First class beer, great atmosphere.......and proper cobs! What more do you need?
