Yet another student pub which is generally oretty busy day and night during term time. It’s usually slightly grubby and the toilets tend to leave a little to be desired, but it’s ok for a cheap drink and some standard pub grub. There’s a pool table and numerous flat screens that show sport or music videos. The best feature for me is the 'balcony’ outdoor area which overlooks the River Soar (hence the name) and in the spring you can watch the baby duckies floating by. Very peaceful, if, again a little dirty.
This place is totally inaccessible though due to the large staircase you have to negotiate at the entrance so wheelchair users or those with mobility difficulties steer clear.
