“Never thought of Ashby as a craft beer paradise, but that was before the days of Brew. While it's primarily a bottle shop (about 100 chilled and unchilled beers), it's also a cracking little taproom, with offerings from the likes of La Trappe, Castle Rock & Buxton on my visit. Nice array of styles too, from Trappists to German lagers to big ass impy stouts. On the expensive side but well worth it. Check it out if you're anywhere near Ashby.“

“A real surprise to find such a nice pub in Ashby. It is run by Tollgate (who also have the amazing Queens Road Tap in Leicester), but here they've got more space which adds to the relaxed atmosphere. Four cask beers plus five keg and one cider, split between their own beers and wonderdul concoctions from Unbarred, Frome, 71 and the like. They hold occasional Tap Takeovers (including Wild Beer over the Bank Holiday).“

“Stopped here for dinner somewhat unexpectedly after long hold-ups on the M40 (we had originally planned to stop further north). A bit of a bonus for me actually as I've always wanted to visit the town just because I like it's name. From the quick glance round we managed, it seemed quite an attractive town, and this slightly unusual Wetherspoons fits in well. It's formed from two old properties at the bottom of the high street, one of which used to be a butchers (hence the pub name) and the other a saddlery. It's an attractive brick-built building, and clearly the original layout has impacted the current pub layout. The staircase is right in front of the door, with a small seating "room" each side, causing a bit of a detour to reach the bar, which is midway through the pub on the right hand side. Beyond the bar a large, bright conservatory-like area has been added at the back of the building with what looked like a decent-sized patio beyond that. The toilets are possibly the highlight of the pub as they all feature ornate original fireplaces. Note that BOTH the toilets on the 1st floor are for the gents (the first is the traps and the second the urinals), and ladies should head up to the next floor for their facilities. You will be thinking "ok, so nice building, what about the stuff that matters?". Well, it's a 'Spoons, so you should know exactly what to expect. A large range of good value pub grub. Efficient and fairly friendly staff. The usual range of bottled/canned/keg craft beers (nothing too unusual, but reasonably priced by pub standards) plus eight cask taps. Little disappointed by the cask range here - 'Spoons are usually a fair bet for new local rates, but the casks here were still dominated by brews from the 'Spoonsfest that had finished 2 or 3 weeks previously. Still I'm sure normally it would have seasonal local brews on (other websites confirm this). Overall it made for a cheap and pleasant family-friendly dinner break exactly when we needed one, and visually at least it seemed quite a pleasant 'Spoons.“
