user reviews of Lord Keeper Of The Great Seal, Oadby

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Fairly compact Wetherspoons branch on what I guess is Oadby's main street. We visited on Saturday afternoon shortly before the horse racing finished. It was fairly busy with diners and families on the lower level and drinkers nearer the entrance. By the time we left, there were bouncers on the door. Service was decent. Ales were Morland Old Speckled Hen, Sharps Doom Bar, Greene King Abbot & IPA, Theakston Best Bitter & Ramsbury Chalk Steam. The cider was Black Dragon. Not the best branch in the chain. But unlike elsewhere, at least they had a real cider.

As expensive as the Cow and Plough is, you can atone for your flagrant spending there here, on the second and last stop on the "Oadby bar crawl". Ales are cheap and cheerful, with Theakstons Best at 1.45 and guests ales between 1.29 and 1.99, although usually hitting the 1.69 mark. Always worth popping in during an Ale Festival. The clientele is typically very mixed, as befits a Spoons. You will find all sorts in here. The pub overall is generally as good as it gets with a Spoons.

This was my local while I was at Leicester Uni from 1998-2001. It was always packed with students due being the nearest pub to the halls of residence about half a mile away.

I remember drinking Theakstons (89p a pint!!!!!!!!!) all day, until I think... we became known as the Theakstons lot. Hmmm. Well, we were students after all.

The bar staff were a mixed bunch though. Jeff seemed to like us, along with Beardy bloke. But the Fat One accused us of stealing a halloween trinket whilst we were in the middle of complaining about the food. Ally went out with the Lanky Plain One.

Oh well -those were the days.

Apart from my own memories, its basically a standard Wetherspoons, with the nice addition of looking a bit like a library. All the usual average food and drink, guest ales -you know the drill.

somewhat of a interesting pub name again from spoons. Usual cheap beer,with outside seating.
Nice 8/10

Great friendly pub with excellent ales and food but rather smokey at the no smoking bar area. Due to become totally smoke free before May 2006.
Service rather slow for ales as the coffee machine takes so long to operate.
Car parking is 150 metres away but is free.
