Swan & Rushes Leicester
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 September 2018 via mobile

Lousy selection of beer, unnecessary bouncer presence, dull sanitised interior, people milling about who may or may not have been staff, dithering service and lacking any kind of atmosphere.
And I get that the food on match day is cheap so my expectations were low to begin with, but for it to be served in a polystyrene box having been bought from a nearby chip shop was quite remarkable.

The previous incarnation was a brilliant beer lovers pub that attracted people on a Tigers match day. You’d see people spilling out on the street it was so busy. This version won’t achieve that. It’s everything the old version wasn’t and sadly I think the new management believe that’s a good thing. Will fail.
