I enjoy visiting the Live & Let Live. The beer is well looked after and there are usually two Oakham Ales on offer.

No music, no frills, great beer, friendly staff. I don't get here as often as I would like but it is nice and near the station so always handy when there is a cancelled train!

Live and Let Live is a lovely pub. The interior is quite traditional, which makes for a great atmosphere. The staff are very friendly and the beer is very nice. I'll be returning to the Live and Let Live very soon!
