Ale Stone (Bar)
660 AYLESTONE ROAD
“New micropub in Aylestone, owned by the same company as the Blue Boar (q.v.) in town. They have a somewhat similar feel: like the Boar, the Ale Stone is sparsely furnished with a good selection of beer. 5 cask (Everards, Raw, Hart and Abstract on my visit) plus four keg (Skylark Cider and Sam Smith's Taddy Lager as well as two more interesting beers). I got a tick from an Italian brewery that was new to me. There's a bottle fridge here as well, with some craft and trad Belgians as well as a good Sam Smiths collection (including Winter Welcome). Be warned though that the prices fluctuate for packaged beers: I had a Kernel Dry Stout for £3.90 so many bargains to be found, but some of the drink-in prices for the Belgian beers bordered on London prices. Would make a good trip out, especially if combined with the nearby Black Horse.“

“Popular with pre-match football fans, families, dog owners, and anyone who likes a nice pub. Open plan but there are a few distinct sections. We opted for the larger area, which has wooden furniture and dark panels, almost in a nod to faux-Victoriana. The lighting and the music are low, so the hum of conversation is the most noticeable sound. It's an Everards house, but they are fond of guest beers and even have some excellent cask ale festivals (they have 15 stouts, porters and milds on for Halloween). There are a few craft bottles and cans, nothing you can't get anywhere but good breweries such as Anchor and Nene Valley. If you're not in the mood for beer you can try one of the 87 gins. They know their stuff as well, and were happy to talk us through the selection. Good food. Worth checking out if in the area.“
