Just One More

Just One More

It’s freezing cold outside but in side the Sir Robert Peel public house on Jarrom Street in Leicester its warm and packed with mainly men taking a drink before Saturday’s football match at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium. The beer here is good, a well kept cellar as they say. Walls and ceiling covered in beer mats and other pub related items. In the corner a group of five middle aged men play cards for small amounts of money, swearing happily at the guy who takes the pot three times in a row. The game is fast approaching but no one is quick to leave, timing their departure to give them just enough time to buy a hot cup of Bovril, take their seats and prepare for the kickoff.
