The Last Plantagenet  

Another J. D. Wetherspoon, this usually has about three guest ales on at any one time. The food is cheap, though quality has lapsed of late. It also has the occasional beer festivals organised by the head office.

Inside you could be forgiven for thinking you were in any Wetherspoon in the country. But what it lacks in original decor (pictures regarding the Plantagenets aside), it makes up for in its cross-section of society that frequents it. On any given day/night you can see the entire human condition in here. This is not helped by the poor staffing levels now in JDW which leaves tables dirty and glasses uncollected and unwashed for a long time. It also means that there are few staff at the bar to get served.

It has the usual comfy seats and a no-smoking area and some booths are situated to the back of the pub for the intimate moment.

Toilets are upstairs, though there is both access and a downstairs toilet for the disabled.

If you are just stopping off in Leicester and need a quick meal and a drink near the station, you could do a lot worse than sup here, as long as you don't expect The Ritz.

No accommodation here.
