The Italian Greyhound

The Pug & Greyhound is a quintessentially British boozer, making it one of the best country pubs in Leicestershire. Thanks to a gorgeous beer garden perfect for those balmy summer evenings and cosy interiors for when the cold sets in, it's a top-notch spot to kick back with a pint or a plate of hearty nosh. 

Soar Point, Leicester

A top choice of places to drink and one of our favourites near De Montfort University, Soar Point is serving up canalside views and tasty drinks in a colourful setting. It's also got table football and shows all your favourite matches on various screens around the venue.

The White Horse

Searching for the best gastro pubs in Leicestershire? The White Horse gives you everything you need, from delicious pints to yummy Sunday roasts and a friendly staff. They also serve a slew of vegan and vegetarian options for those wanting something more plant-based. 

The Black Horse Pub

When it comes to the best pubs in Leicester for food, The Black Horse has to be right up there. Expect fish 'n' chips, scampi and rump steak across the main menu, as well as burgers covered in everything from poutine to loaded nachos. Plus, there's live music, comedy and that beer garden to boot.
