About this opportunity

A legendary pub in a prime Leicester location!

After 28 successful years at The Old Horse, Kev and Dee are set to retire and pass on the baton of this one-of-a-kind and much-loved pub in a prime Leicester location.

The Old Horse is set on the edge of Leicester’s vibrant city centre, not far from the train station, De Montfort Hall and Leicester University, and right across the road from Victoria Park which is a buzz with activity and a calendar of epic events (It was recently host to Radio 2 in the Park with other live gigs lined up including Kasabian this summer!)

Those who haven’t visited the pub are sure to have heard stories of it, from the rugby posts that take pride of place in the huge garden out back, to the resident coffin and its epic Halloween parties, this is a pub that is well used, well loved and well known.

It offers an extensive selection of drinks, featuring new and exciting options that change with the seasons, from frozen ciders to mulled wine, along with a rotating variety of craft beers and premium lagers on tap. The pub has won many a CAMRA award for its real ales as well as awards for its range of hugely popular ciders.

When it comes to food, there is something to suit everyone’s tastes with a fab pub food menu, freshly made pizza, impressive fresh cobs, a traditional Sunday Roast Carvery and many a BBQ / Smokeout throughout the summer - popular with locals and visitors alike.

Whatever the occasion, The Old Horse is sure to throw the best of parties - just check out their Facebook page!

This pub supports so many local teams and groups it's hard to keep up, to highlight just a few, this includes the local rugby team, the fire station and the university. They celebrate key events like St George's Day, St Patrick's Day, Halloween and Christmas HARD - and their customers love it! Think Skeletons on the building, Santa's sleigh complete with Santa and rides and every occasion is a chance to dress up. This is what sets the pub apart - it is constantly alive and buzzing, celebrating occasions in style and yet still feels like your welcoming local.

The outside space connects it to the buzz of the city and the events taking place in Victoria Park - the pub has even been featured in one of music legends Kasabian's music video.

It's already a very successful pub business, so imagine what you could do at this pub with such engaged customers!

This pub would suit a characterful person with a real passion for people and keeping everyone entertained - you need to love people and a party (and fancy dress may help!).
