Last week the Steamin' Billy Brewing Co opened their 7th pub in Leicestershire, the Horse and Trumpet in Sileby.
The idea, it seems, is to run this similarly to the Dog and Gun in Syston. It's a drinkers pub. No hot food here.
3 cask ales from the Steamin' Billy range and 5 guests. The keg beers included Meister Pils, Blanche de Bruxelles and Timmermans Kriek on this visit.
The pub hasn't been spoilt by having walls knocked out, so it's split into four rooms. Low ceilings, exposed wooden beams and "Mind Your Head" signs aplenty. A gorgeous country boozer.
It's only a short walk from Sileby railway station, so a Steamin' Billy pub crawl by train from Loughborough to Leicester via Sileby and Syston is a must.
