The Criterion

Chorizo is AMAZING! Chorizo on pizza with some garlic and chilli (The Diablo) at Criterion is the nicest pizza in the frikkin world. The Criterion pub, yes pub, a proper old school brewery pub isn't...

LOROS

They're a charity and a shop. Which makes them a charity shop(s) - plural because there's bloody loads of them! Some Loros charity shops have different themes. I like the bookshop on Queens Road and...

Pedestrian Gallery

We haven't had any galleries yet I think and this is one my favourite. Pedestrian Gallery is one of the most inviting galleries in the city with new (often localised) exhibitions on constant cycle...

The Humber Stone

It's a massive curvy cursed stone said to bring bad luck to anyone who touches it. Oddly, not many people know where it is and I came upon completely by accident myself. Up at the top of North...

James’ Cafe Bistro

Despite being right next to the Highcross, this place is pretty hidden in many respects but it's brilliant! I only discovered it recently when I went along with my ma and pa and was thoroughly...

Diwali Celebrations

So, unfortunately you'll have to wait a year (ish) for this to roll around again but get excited: FREE FIREWORKS DISPLAY! Everyone loves free things. This display is pretty good, and there's lots of...

Castle View

We've only gone and added a review of a street... which is bizarre. But we don't play by the rules on this website. We do whatever the frikk we want (by which I mean, we use expletives generously and...

Picadilly Cinema

My favourite cinema in Leicester. Typically, they show Indian films which have way too much melodrama and dancing for my liking, but they do screen the occasional big Hollywood film or mainstream...

Caff on the Saff

I think I like the name more than anything! What can I say, I'm a sucker for puns. Punning aside, the bacon cobs are spot on and the menu is your traditional 'caff' food of a very high quality, Ian...

Spinney Hills Park

I don't think there's many cities with as wide a cultural mix as Leicester. A walk through Spinney Hills Park during the weekend is a trophy for the cause for multicultural Britain. Imagine the...

Hakamou

It's really busy on weekends and dead in the week and it's certainly not cheap BUT they play cheesy 90s tunes, the bar people are wearing Hawaiin shirts and you get drinks served in coconuts and...

La Dolce Vita

Grotty looking on the outside, the food here is fab. I mean, really really tasty. The service is good, too. It's an Italian restaurant and they definitely make up for outside appearances with the...

The Vintage Fair at the Cathedral

This occurs every 2/3 months and it's good. You pay a pound to get in and then there's lots of stalls of lovely vintage clothes and jewellery and accessories and bits and bobs for you to look at. I've...

Abbey Pumping Station

As a young child I never ever wondered what happened to a shit once I flushed the toilet. After about the age of 8 I never had to wonder either after visiting Abbey Pumping museum. Every museum has a...
