Cracking pub, always visit when City are at home, either pre or post match. Handy for the Tigers too. Great selection of beers, friendly staff and the Cheese and Onion Cobs are perfect if you fancy a snack with your beer.

Favourite place to drink in Leicester. Relaxed, busy, traditional ale house feel. Exceptionally well selected and kept range of cask and other ales. Friendly staff and affable bunch of customers. Highly recommended.

Visited to meet up with friends Friday lunchtime. Lovely as ever, ham cobs and cheese cobs yummy and good value. Barman friendly and welcoming, other customers friendly too. One thing, really freezing cold, we are hardy hikers but none of us took our coats off. Real ale should be served at room temp, well it was but room temp was 13 degs. Planned a few drinks each as celebrating, but driven out after 1 pint each and into nearest coffee shop for a warm up and hot drinks. Plse sort heating out as it ruins the experience and loses u trade.

This great little craft ale pub has become a firm favourite with me and my friends over the past few months. Having been treated to the most offensive service of my life only a week ago in the Two Tailed Lion along the road, I return to this pub for the quality and range of ales, the friendliness of service and the doorstopper cheese and onion cobs - all of which come at an extremely affordable price. The absence of a television screen is a blessed relief as it permits people to actually talk, listen and find a little oasis of calm.

We searched this place out when in Leicester for two nights for a film event based on reading about the quality of beer on offer - they were as good as expected. It is clearly a place for real ale lovers - we had a very enjoyable evening and departed very contented.

Myself and friends visited on the 8.6.18. Although there were some initial issues with the beer we selected, the way the staff on duty conducted themselves with professionalism and transparency I felt, should be noted as exemplary and a credit to the owners of this fine establishment.
Thank you very much.

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. CAMRA members discount here. Over the road if you need food is the Rutland and Derby. Weakest of the three for beer but still ok and adequate pub food. Next time in Leicester I shall return.
