Polar Bear, Leicester

Welcome one and all to the magnificent POLAR BEAR!

Home of the YELLOW CARD!!!

We are on the main De Montfort University campus, in the heart of Leicester, on the site of the former Fox’s Glacier Mint factory – hence ‘Polar Bear’, after the famous Peppy the Polar Bear. The pub is one of the oldest in Leicester, has a tree holding it up (no joke...come see!!!) and is a focal point before, during and after Leicester Tigers and Leicester City home games, welcoming a mix of students and local customers.

In 2010 and 2011, we proudly won the Best Bar None award, for being the most family-friendly pub in Leicester, through our welcoming of families picking up or dropping off their children for University and local people who just wanted a pub where their kids would be welcome...

The pub recently installed SKY Sports, shows events in 3D for FREE and is the home of LIVE WWE events such as the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania!

Monday is Quiz Night, with Cocktails 2 for £5 to help lubricate the old grey matter, Thursday is QUIDS - with drinks from just £1 from 7pm

...pop in and speak to our Manager, Matt and the rest of the team to find out what else the Polar Bear has to offer!!!
