Of course, no Leicester Beer Festival would be without our on-site curry house selling authentic curries to make the beers go down a treat. These will be available throughout the duration of the festival, although last orders for curries will be 30 mins before closing time.
We also serve tea & coffee. Soft drinks for nominated drivers are free.
