Real ales currently on tap

You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline – it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.
Frank Zappa

  • Micro pub, big passion

    We’re small but we have a big heart and passion in plenty. We love real ale, cider and fine wine and as all these things are for sharing with like-minded people what better way to do that than to open a pub? We also stock vegan and gluten-free beers. We are dog friendly too so don’t feel that you have to leave them behind!


Proper job ciders

He Looked and smelt like Autumn’s very brother, his face being sunburnt to wheat-colour, his eyes blue as corn-flowers, his sleeves and leggings dyed with fruit-stains, his hands clammy with the sweet juice of apples, his hat sprinkled with pips, and everywhere about him the sweet atmosphere of cider which at its first return each season has such an indescribable fascination for those who have been born and bred among the orchards.
Thomas Hardy

  • Rather good wines

    We sell a number of fine wines specially selected for us by Andrew Hill of George Hill Ltd., Loughborough, one of Leicestershires longest established Wine Merchants.

Whoever drinks beer, he is quick to sleep; whoever sleeps long, does not sin; whoever does not sin, enters Heaven! Thus, let us drink beer!
Martin Luther

  • Selected traditional pub snacks

    We’ve tried them all and have selected crisps by Slabs and Ten Acre, and pork scratchings by Snaffling Pig! In addition we have pork pies, cheese boards and fresh cobs. All ingredients are sourced from Leicester Market.
