To misquote John íHannibalí Smith: I love it when a Plantagenet comes together. And since the bones of Richard III were found in a city centre car park, Leicester has certainly come together: the once dormant tourist industry has sprung to life on the back of the infamous monarch now so closely associated with the city, and who can ignore the top-of-the-table (at time of writing) antics of LCFC, perhaps bouyed in no small way by the cityís success? Well, sorry to disappoint but the Last Plantagenet is just another Wetherspoons: cheap food, decent beer and an instantly forgettable experience. It certainly serves a purpose but it isnít a place to linger, especially in light of the other delights, both beery and otherwise, offered by the city.

Visited a couple of times, itís a few minutes from the station, had a good range of well kept beers on and decently priced. This is one of the nicer Spoons, the staff seem friendly and the clientele not too bad either. Handy for a quick beer if got some time in Leicester but not enough to go somewhere better!

Slightly scruffy, run down Wetherspoons close to the Railway Station. Feels like a soup kitchen canteen inside. Slow and slightly gruff service. Didnít linger.

One of the more "earthy" spoons in Leicestershire. Some of the characters that sit near the door are both entertaining and terrifying at the same time. Service can be slow. Does a good job with the beers, though. And puts some effort into the JDW festivals.

Leicesters first spoons and a rum one at that ! 5 or so minutes walk from the station and as well as the trad spoons clientele as an added bonus thereís a doss house on nearby Dover St. Never had an issue with the beer quality here, they get the guest beers in, but this is at the low end of the spoons market in terms of punters.

Wetherspoon in the standard look, but comfortable enough. It extends back quite far so thereís enough seats for most times. The bar has three sets of real ale pumps that include some local ales. WiFi and food as standard. Itís closest to the rail station of all the ones of this chain in the city centre.

Big JDW close to Leicester train station. A bit moody and mucky looking, even by Spoonsí standards, but beers on handpull are fairly plentiful and cheap.

Oppressively dark, and solitary alcoholics dominate. Front is a typical Spoons canteen layout. Head to the back for a more intimate setting. Needless to say very cheap, beer quality is hit and miss. Large range, even by Spoons standards.
