Discover a true hidden gem set deep in the Leicestershire countryside. The heart of the pub remains steeped in local history and memorabilia, (it’s a shame we can’t have the fire roaring all year round), while the dining room and comfortable outside areas have been refreshed to give a stylish modern feel.
Our well thought out menu caters for every appetite, whether it’s a light snack or a hearty roast, and all our food, locally sourced and home cooked, is supported by imaginative seasonal specials that will keep you coming back to try something different – or the same again!
We keep a great selection of well-maintained beers, as every traditional country pub should, complemented by a broad range of gins, wines and other spirits to suit every taste.
A warm welcome awaits all those in this gem of a relaxed traditional pub in the leafy village of Illston, half way between the A47 and A6 in the rolling countryside of East Leicestershire.
Sue and the team look forward to welcoming you soon…
