Few pubs are as well run as The Rutland & Derby, which is located in the middle of Leicester. This is a really well-cared-for pub, and attention to detail, the desire to offer the best possible customer experience, and the landlord’s downright perfectionism shine through. There’s a great selection of wines and beers (including some unusual ones), and plenty of pleasant places in which to drink them, including a fantastic roof terrace.

The food is comforting and tasty, whether you go for one of the snacks or something a little larger. You can choose from a great selection of pub tapas such as scotch duck egg with brown sauce; Rutland fried chicken; “proper” meatballs in tomato stew and white sauce; Charlie’s mini bangers; and Hill Lamb kofta. Hand-stretched stonebaked pizzas are also available, alongside pub classics like ribeye steak with horseradish butter, and honey and mustard ham, egg and chips.
