The Western opened in 1895 at the same time or thereabouts that the Great Central Railway was starting up. The pub was originally called The Western Hotel and became popular with railway users and workers alike.
The pub also has a theatre, Leicester’s only pub theatre, called Upstairs at The Western.
A really warm and welcoming traditional British pub it currently offers a range of real ales including guest beers and ciders as well as good food.
