At the edge of the nicer part of Leicester City Centre - just before you get to the usual dual carriageway related mistakes of 1960s town planning - lies the Criterion. An ugly box of a building, it looks like a post war public toilet, with cream tiling and a back street location. Cast all this aside though, as inside is a jolly good pub. Simply but comfortably laid out, there are two bars to choose from. One is festooned with beer mats - indicating their commitment to serving some excellent real ales - and this is where you can also hear the regular live music. If the hunger pangs start to bite, there are pizzas on offer and if you fancy a challenge, the Tuesday pop quiz is apparently pretty good. It can get very busy at the more obvious times, but the Criterion goes to show you can't always judge a book by it's cover.

A great traditional boozer with a top notch range of ales. Knowledgeable staff and lovely pizza!
