Well sad to say Steed , of your choices only one (The Bell) is still there !!

It was the Queen Elizabeth (Q E) up Bottle Lane.

sad really. My aunty use to own the Tavern in Town Upper parliament st up until about 1996? I always remember being in there when it was the first day of "all day opening hours"....when was that? I was with a guy from Leicester during my college days at trent Polytechnic as it was then. Central TV were in the pub & caught yours truly & the lad from Leicester still boozing at about 4.30pm.
