LOUGHBOROUGH

In some places only a few pubs  have been visited and it seems a shame to ignore perfectly fine hostelries because of this. Therefore, as the title says, here are some to see during a quick visit.

Hobgoblin in Loughborough is very basic. Wooden tables, floor, bar, stools - and only one real ale on. Perhaps just too basic - needs to offer more than one real ale to make premises acceptable. St Patricks day flag has been up for 4 months.
