Wygston’s House Bar & Restaurant


Wygston’s House Bar & Restaurant

Leicester's oldest standing house has recently been converted into a stunning bar & restaurant.

Opened in March 2017, Wygston's House is now once again a part of Leicester's great history. Standing proudly in the heart of the city's historic Old Town, serving real ales, draught beers and high-end cuisine every day of the week.

Thought to be one of the oldest houses in Leicester, this medieval timber-framed property in the middle of the city dates back to the 15th century and was the dwelling of Roger Wygston, Mayor of Leicester in 1472. It serves classic English pub food, sandwiches, Sunday roasts and cask beers.
