Sterile chain with a wide range of clientele, not a lot of atmosphere nice selection of 4 or so cask ales though and reasonably priced.

Four real ales available, one of which will always be from Oakham.. Making a real effort which is unexpected given Slug & Lettuce’s reputation. Beer quality good and cheaper than most of the town. Its cheaper prices does mean that occassionally the customers are there simply for the cheap beer if you get my drift.

It’s a sterile chain, but it has two rotating microbrewery guests, with Wells Bombardier and Oakham Oblivion as the regulars. The ales are reasonably priced. I think the price is £2.50. Never had the food. Service is perfunctory to good. Very decent beer festivals are held once or twice a year.
