Brennan’s Candy Cabin

SWEETS! Old people sometimes have whole bags of just the strawberry creams from Quality Street and I always used to wonder how they managed to sift through the Woolworths Pick n Mix efficiently. In...

Markfield Quarry

When I was a teenager, Leonardo DiCaprio was hot property and everyone proper loved him. The Beach was a bit of a crap film but he looked amazing in it and it's sort of the look I imagine I achieve...

Tin Drum Books

Narborough Road isn't as twee and full of middle class women with scarves as the general Clarendon Park area, and that's why their 2nd hand stores and vintage-y outlets are a little more worn and a...

Leicester Royal Infirmary Urgent Care Centre

Firstly, I hope for obvious reasons that this review is entirely useless to most of you. Also as a 'day out' it's not recommended but I didn't know where else to put it! But I feel I want to write it...

Bradgate Park (again)

Bradgate Park, it's already been reviewed by the other half of the leicesteritsnotshit team. But I'm posting again anyway because I like it too and wanted to shout about the more active things that...

Tilt Coffee House

I used to really like playing pinball on my old windows 98 PC as a younger person. It had wicked graphics and you could make all the lights go cool colours if you aimed the ball right. As an old PC...

Yesim Patisserie

Leicester City FC

I have been loads and have had a season ticket in the past when getting a seat in K block didn't cost more money than I can currently afford in a year. So yeh, it's definitely fine for me to review...

Bradgate Park

Once upon a time, I went on a first date to Bradgate Park. We brought each other balloons, walked up the hill to what we called the giant penis, it's barely phallic in shape but it seemed funny at the...

Leicester Tigers

My dad goes loads and I had a season ticket when I was 14 so clearly, I'm an expert. I only get down to Welford Road about once a year now a days, if that, but I get enough blow by blow accounts when...

Knit One

As a very sporadic/crap knitter, I'm unsure whether I have the authority to review this shop. But whatever, I'm going to do it anyway. I got a Groupon voucher for a beginners' knitting workshop here....

Angel Gateway

So, in response to the tweet below, we now have a review for Angel Gateway: @lestaitsnotshit As u reviewed Castle View, can u review Angel Gateway, off Gallowtree Gate? My mates' band had a song...

Jones’

I said I was going to review my (as it's bloody freezing, two pairs of) socks off last night but instead I ended up going out to eat. All in the name of research, of course. And, as always, ok, as...

Rossa’s Donuts

I've somehow been reading Cosmo magazine and have realised that people like asserting life decisions using the multiple choice quiz format. Work through the quiz below to help you decide whether or...
