SET

This shop was in St Martin's Square, but now it's in the Highcross. I'm unsure how I feel about this, but I do really love this shop. It is for people who love...stuff. Useless things mainly. And...

Mrs Bridges’

This place is cute. It has really nice breakfasts. I really love Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine (not both at the same time, that would be far too EGGStravagant) and they're both really good here....

Kebabish Original

Kebabs are iffy at the best of times, so when a place describes their food as being kebab-ish, then even those with cast iron stomachs have cause for stepping with trepidation. Despite the unfortunate...

Paddy’s Marten Inn Bar and Grill

This place is a strange one. So, the first time I went was on my mum's recommendation and it was a dark and rainy night in winter. And it's on this dark and rainy road where it looks like nothing is...

Bottle Rocket Comedy

I should rightfully detest Bottle Rocket Comedy after the shit of a comedian Patrick Monahan laid into me like Vanessa Feltz lays in a family pack of profiteroles last year sometime. But - I try and...

Troodos Taverna

Troodos Taverna doesn't look like much from the outside. But inside it's like being on holiday! There's even a naked mermaid painted on the wall, for those of you who like to see breasts. The chap who...

Firebug

Firebug (or the pub formerly known as Firefly) is open all the time. And they serve a good range of beers on tap alongside their slightly alternative atmosphere. I think quiz nights are Tuesday and...

Swithland Woods

Grab some wellies or dust gathering underused new years resolution running shoes that are never going to get used otherwise and head over to Swithland woods for a breath of fresh air and all round...

(Dave’s) Leicester Comedy Festival

It's in February and it brings some good comedy to Leicester. A large number of venues across the city pack out their programmes with a good mixture of comedy priced across the entire range. The...

Manhattan34

Manhattan 34 might at first glance seem a bit pretentious and up itself what with the vintage stylings, men in horn-rimmed glasses and wooly jumpers and slightly inflated prices. But... if you like a...

The Wardrobe

A small indy vintage clothes shop with some 2nd hand and some new clothes. I used to buy the odd item here when I was fashionable and stuff. I know fashionable people who shop there. I know that...

Yokos/Toros Express

Chicken places have a bad rep and the so called 'dirty chicken' trade doesn't get it's name for no reason. Navigate the places I recommend and you'll experience the finest in tasty chicken that's good...

Roma Cafe

Roma is the place I can't stop myself from going to if I want a coffee in Leicester. The food is good and cheap for lunching and they've started a later service too for dinner. Personally I frequent...
