They always have a brilliant DJ here at the weekend -- probably my favourite place for a dance in Leicester! Drinks are reasonably priced. They have a small outside area with benches which is nice for when it gets a bit warm!

I went here for lunch with a former colleague as we fancied a change. The food was actually quite good - around £7 for a ciabatta with chips and coleslaw. I had the avocado, tomato and mozzarella which was good and my friend was pleased with the pulled pork. It's a big space and a shame that we were one... More

For a so called premium bar, the place is a dive and the toilets are horrendous!!! Never again will I go in there. The drinks are over priced and the bar staff are rude.

Called in Friday night around 8pm for a drink before a meal out. I had a raspberry tickle, swapped the red bull for cranberry juice, it was delicious. Thoroughly recommend if you like fruity cocktails. Was a long wait to be served though and it wasn't that busy. Need more staff behind the bar.

Well, I was not very impressed by this pub, because there is not much place for dancing, the music is from 2000 year.
