Leicester Pub Reveals £250,000 Refurbishment

The Loaded Dog pub in Leicester has revealed their brand new look  after a £250,000 investment on with quirky add- ons including chargers on every table, neon lights, and an interactive boxing game (no contact)! in the sports zone, making it clear that all elements of a fantastic modern pub have been ticked off.

Leicester University Big Band Society’s 20-piece band brought the house down with renditions of Minnie the Moocha and Lady Marmalade at the opening bash on 20th January.

The big reveal exhibited the entire revamp complete with new bar, sports zone, ‘Kennels’ beer garden and an offer that included an entertainment line up fit for Leicester’s dynamic social scene.

“We are really chuffed the evening went so well and was received with such a huge amount of local support,” said manager Jay Barclay.

“We’ve well and truly brought our vision to life doubling up as a great relaxed workspace for both students and office-escapees, and a lively weekend and evening venue.”

Free printing, fast Wi-Fi, and more charging points than most offices, are just a few hints that this is a bar deliberately tempting students and workers away from their cold common rooms and bland meeting spaces.

Drinks variety is fabulous from astonishing freak-shakes involving cake, cream, nutella, marshmallows and candyfloss; to tin can cocktails available in a single or ‘Giant’ size, brilliant for sharing either in person or on Instagram.

A craft beer and cider wall is home to five rotational craft beers and Lilley’s craft cider whilst lager lovers also have ample choice, and there’s the perfect serve with frozen Heineken glasses – destined to be a best seller in the beer garden during the summer months.

All day breakfasts serve from 10am and for those on the run, grab ‘n’ go pastries and coffee are on offer. There’s amazing grazing food, geared up to keep customers fuelled up, from morning to night. Meat lovers, vegans, the health conscious, and grazers to big plate diners are well and truly catered for.
