The Marquis of Wellington  

Refurbished in the summer of 1998, this pub is part of the Everards chain. As such on at the time were well kept Equinox, Old Traditional, Beacon Bitter and Tiger.

The lighting is dark in the evenings and the high wood panelled walls reminds you of a stately home. There is a gas fire (real effect) at the rear near the ladies.

Situated opposite is a snug type area, you can get intimate here by firelight.

Old pictures of Leicester abound as do raised drinking areas (disabled toilet available). The long bar with shiny marble top has lots of hand pumps on plus wine pumps! and the bar back shows special offers on the latest naff bottled alcohol drinks.

Out back there is a wedding marquee type area all done out in drapes and red carpet. Here they have the Xmas parties and such like.

Food is served lunch and evening until 8pm and is usual fayre including a vegetarian special of the day. Prices are a little high, but not bad seeing as they need to recoup the refurb cost.

No music to spoil conversation, though fruit machines.

Worth a stop if in the area.

No accommodation here.
