And It's From The Old I Travel To The New (Or A Short Walk From "The Globe" To An International Place Of Beauty)
Whilst I was on my way to the subject of this review I found a plaque stuck to the side of a building which was rather intriguing.
Unfortunately, I will never review "The Globe" as it fails my External Menu Test (as in I need a microscope to read the menu they have "helpfully" stuck in a glass box on an outside wall near the door.
Apparently, "The Globe" is the most notable Pub in Leicester.

Maybe you can read the writing a bit better on this photo???
However, this was not my intended destination.
Those of you who read the original "Inkyworld" blog may remember I reviewed "Taps", on Guildhall Lane, a few years ago.
"Taps" is a very apt name for this pub as it has taps serving lager at the tables (apart from in the main bar area) so you can serve yourself.
Main Bar Area of Taps
This is a truly international establishment - you can try lagers and other alcoholic drinks from all over the globe.
If you want my honest opinion the best room in the place is to the right of the bar (then turn left - mind you don't (a) trip over the step just after you get into the room or (b) fall down the staircase to your left as you walk in.
As you probably know by now I hate dark or dimly lit spaces - however, I will definitely always make an exception if I am provided with stunning scenery to look at. (Call me strange but - if you stick labels and posters on your walls advertising drinks from exotic places - I will read them.)
A Tap at Taps!!!
Something to read with your pint Sir (or Madam)???
