Great live music scene
Oct 2018
Seen so many great bands at the Donkey I thought it was time I gave them a review. I've enjoyed seeing some amazing well established artists as well as great up and coming bands. It's always worth checking out their gig listings to see what's coming up. I recently had food there too and it was excellent.

Successful quiz night held att he Donkey and welcoming helpful owners
Oct 2017 • Business
We held a Charity Quiz night at the venue which was a huge success and the owners (Zoe and Warren) were great in their support of the event and contributing towards it. It is a cosy quirky venue and the event was enjoyed by all. Thank you to Zoe and Warren for allowing us to hold our event there and for being such great sports.

Very quirky and friendly pub.
Aug 2017 • Friends
Popped in here for a drink after visiting the Antiques Warehouse across the road.

It as late afternoon, so not many people there, but we received excellent service from the bar owner.

Very quirky decor and a tired but comfortable seating area outside next to the carpark.

There was a band just starting to set up as we left and from the photos we saw the place has a great reputation for it's live music.

Would definitely go there again.

The Geordie Girls night out at The Donkey
Mar 2017 • Friends
Stayed overnight in Leicester as part of our coach trip, As no entertainment on at the hotel we googled for something to do. "Stax of Soul" on at "The Donkey" popped up.
Well nothing ventured.... 21 Females from Newcastle turned up there on Sat 11th March 2017. Not the biggest venue but the atmosphere, the staff and the friendly locals made up for it.
Bar staff were brilliant made us feel very welcome and what a night we had.Fabulous music from the band we sang and danced all evening. We even made some new friends.
The Guys on the door were amazing, even called for our taxis back to the hotel.

Gig
Feb 2017 • Couples
I do like going here but I think maybe they should hire more security in the venue when a popular act it on. After being pushed around and pushed into the wooden sound thing in the middle which hurt, we moved to the bar only to be pushed around again. Eventually got bored of being touched and abused so we left. Went to the pub next door and overheard some ppl saying the same.

Went with a group before dinner elsewhere on New Year's Day - wish we could have stayed longer. Fantastic welcome, great range of drinks and brilliant live music. I want the saddle bar stool. Will be back next time we are in Leicester.
