An award-winning pub in the city centre has announced that it is reopening after being closed for six months due to coronavirus.
Knight and Garter, in Hotel Street, is set to welcome customers once again from Thursday, September 17.
The pub, which was named the best pub in Leicestershire at the National Pub and Bar Awards 2018 and 2019, is run by The Beautiful Pubs Collective.
The independent pub company also runs The Rutland and Derby, in Leicester, and The Forge Inn, in Glenfield, which have both already reopened.
It will give you regular email updates on the latest from restaurants and bars in Leicestershire.

Announcing the reopening, Sam Hagger, founder of The Beautiful Pubs Collective, said: “Both myself, our general manager, Bea, and her team cannot wait to welcome you, your friends, family and colleagues back to our carefully considered city centre pub and restaurant.”
Customers can look forward to enjoying new food and drink menus, and paying a visit to the underground ‘Gallery Venue’ which will now be open every weekend as a ‘Cocktail, Champagne and Oyster Bar’ playing host to DJ Fitz.
Sam added: “We are also delighted to announce our partnership with charity Hospitality Action, who are doing everything they can to support people in our industry who have been worst affected by the Covid crisis by selling portions of their ‘Invisible Chips’, so please do check out our menu for more information when you visit.”
Housed in the building formerly occupied by Molly O’Grady’s, Knight and Garter opened in May 2017, after six months and £1.4 million of refurbishments. It features a restaurant which is accessed via a hidden door.
