If you're a fan of Wetherspoon's, meaning you like knowing what you're gonna get and that the quality and interiors are not gonna be a surprise to you, the High Cross is definitely the place to go.

It's what you want from a pub. Quick, cheap, and cheerful. The food was good, although our order was messed up when we ordered on the app (could be user error, could be the app not being so user friendly).

The High Cross had a poor interior, no ice, no tables and was full of drinkers who had just turned 18. Although drinks prices are reasonable this is best avoided on a Saturday night. There are better Wetherspoons in Leicester.

Very busy Wetherspoons pub. 1 of 2 “Spoons” in Leicester city centre. As Haggis, neeps & tatties still on menu, plumped for that. Dinner service was quick & hot. About 10 mediocre real ales available.

The High Cross situates in the city center of Leicester. Outside this pub, some granite sets are laid into the road in the shape of a cross. This marks the site of the High Cross, the center of medieval Leicester. The cross was actually the last remaining pillar of the old Market House. With daily offers on both food & drink, you'll definitely find what you're looking for! We have a fantastic selection of guest ales, wines & craft beer. If you need further information or would like to book a table please contact us.
