Leicester Pubs - The Western

An Everard's owned pub run by the Steamin' Billy company since October 2007.
Vastly improved from the old days of fluorescent strip lighting and Tiger.

The walls are covered in old breweriana. Signs advertising beers long gone.
Two rooms, a real open fire and plenty of room outside when it's sunny.

Seven cask ales including three from the Steamin' Billy range.
I'll be honest here and say I wasn't paying too much attention to the guest beers. I usually just stick with the house beers. £2.40 for a pint of Tipsy Fisherman with a Billy card.

Another pub in Leicester that serves fresh pizzas.
There's an eclectic mix of drinkers; students, regulars and football fans on match days.

It's only a short walk from here to the Black Horse pub on Braunstone Gate, also worth a visit if you're in the West End of Leicester.
