    There's always a lengthy queue outside there, so yes, I'd say it's good.

    Never been to that pub you mention to eat.

    Of course if you want to visit the best Indian restaurant in Leicester then just go up Welford Road to the Shivalli!

    Been a few times (admittedly not recently) and what I had was good value I thought.

    Walk up Welford Road away from Tiger's ground so that you walk with Nelson Mandela Park and the prison on your right, toward city centre.
    About 5 mins up the road, just past hospital car park. Shivalli is on the left opposite the council monstrosity, sorry I mean council building

    Sounds like a plan! :-)

    How are you getting there sparkeh? Send me an email. I don't want to be a loner there.

    *Do* turn up with some EG identifying stuff with you
    *Don't* forget that this is part of a procurement, therefore it is commercially sensitive and confidential!

    I seem to be the only person wearing an EduGeek lanyard ... I'm the 'broad-chested' (getting on to fat) bloke all in black wearing shades. Say hello.
