Pubs to the South of Leicester showing rugby

Post by byrontiger » Fri Feb 15, 2013 9:18 pm

I'm on a visit to the area and will be between Stoneygate and Market Harborough.
I'm hoping to find somewhere that will show the England/France rather than football.
Any ideas, please?

Is it normally a football pub?

Do you do food?

Check the Pub recommendations list thread on the chit chat forum.

Personally I'd recommend The Old Horse opposite Victoria Park just as you go out of town, good food & they usually have the rugby on.

Fox and Tiger in Blaby show most rugby games I think.

I watched Tigers away to Worcester (Friday night game) earlier this season and at half-time the landlord bought out loads of chips and cobs for everyone to tuck in...

Couldn't have got much better at that point... then we went and scored a penalty try to win in the last minute :smt026
