“Great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Had a Sunday lunch here today and it was fabulous! The quality and service was super, friendly staff. Will definately go again, as it is hidden away, but well worth finding.

“Great place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

This place is a little hidden gem. We go there every time that there is a football game on, and despite the "No football tops" sign to descredit some of the more rowdy followers, you can sneak in providing youre discrete. The bar service is very good and friendly and staff above the normal standard that you seem to get nowadays.
The food is excellent, but you do have to wait sometimes, even though it doesnt appear very busy, but all of it is well worth it, from what seems to be a simple sandwich (the chips are to die for!), all up to the more ambitous fayre on offer.
Being local to the "Uni" you do get your fare share of students, quite how long they can make a pint last is truly staggering and im certain they only come in for a warm! I think if the place had to rely upon them for a living it wouldnt last long!!!
Overall, a great place, very much recommended, keep up the good work!!

“Great food, staff and furniture.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Stopped by on our way to the Sunderland friendly for a burger and a beer. Great selection of drinks and food was tasty and traditional but with a twist. Staff were really helpful giving us directions to the footy ground too. I just can't understand why the place was so quiet?! I assume it's much more busy in University term-times.
I loved the decor, very old school and there were classic arcade machines on the way to the toilets (if you can't find the toilets, follow the painted sign that says 'Bogs') Nice touch!
If we're ever in Leicester again we'll be sure to pop back here 10/10
