Can't comment on the food as I didn't eat here but unfortunately our drinks were not good. Both my pint of ale and my girlfriend's pint of cider tasted awful. Neither of us could finish our drinks they were that bad, I get the impression...More

Encouraged by other reviews expected better. Booked table a week in advance but ended up crammed into a tight area next to a large table of 8. Music so loud almost impossible to converse. Pleasant if rather vacant girl serving, not sure what was on...More

If I have a drink in Leicester it will often be in the Orange Tree. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and a decent selection of drinks. This includes a fair choice cocktails although it does lack a variety of ales. It seems to attract...More

Having read good reviews about the Sunday lunch here and the quality of their veggie options we contacted them asking if they could cope with a table of 18 with 48 hours notice on the Sunday. Amy was very helpful and took the booking. The...More

Friends, Ben and Pugsy got let down at the last minute and failed to open a Bar in Goa. Still passionate about opening a bar after getting over the disappointment they went for something closer to home. Leicester - In 1997 it was a vibrant town where they both lived, and they thought they could create something that was ideal for the city and our all their mates.They took the first pub they saw, which was really run down and on a deserted end of the high st.Although the Haunch of Vension was it's traditional name, they felt it didn't quite fit with vision so after a few days in the records office (no internet then!) They found a pub called the orange tree that used to be just 100 yards away from this site. Both the name and the building worked perfectly as they filled it with vinyl, beers and friends, bright colours and old sofas.
