    Don't beat about the bush mate, say it how it is ... lol

    If you are looking for a new meeting place in Leicester, I can recommend the Swan and Rushes, Oxford Street, near the LRI, they have real ale and real cider on draught as well as a good selection of bottled beers.
    It's also on the bus route From Artypie's house, so handy for us ;)

    I have heard that is a good pub, never been there though.

    Bit dark, but the extension at the back is now rubble

    Maybe we should arrange to have a drink one Saturday evening to mourn the loss of the Pump and Tap and the Bowstring bridge, in the Swan and Rushes.

    It makes me angry and worried. What hope do pubs have left. This looked fantastic architectually as well. The closing of pubs is just wrong. Seems though i semi live in a pub im hoping were goin to be safe!

    ps The demo seemed to go ahead quite quickly. Had it been planned for a long time in advance?

    It's all over.

    With so many pubs closing and hanging by a thread it's criminal to demolish one that's thriving.

    I used to know the landlord in the Swan and Rushes, and those in the Nags Head and Star (demolished for flats), the Oxford Boater (now a nasty chain pub) and the Angel, to name but a few.
