The Generous Briton

Welcome to the Generous Briton in Loughborough

The Generous Briton has been at its current site since 1937 making it one of the oldest pubs in Loughborough. What’s more amazing is that it sits on the same grounds as an original pub that was opened in 1837…now that’s history!

The pub became a genuine free house in 2011 and won the CAMRA Pub of the Year in 2012. “The GB” is ideally situated between the town centre and university.

The pub has now undergone an extensive refurbishment programme and particular attention has been paid to retain many of its period features (the open fires are still here!) and is equipped to serve drinkers from all walks of life.

Our Lounges

As a recently refurbished pub in Loughborough. We strive to provide the best drinking experience possible! We have a number of drinks areas for all types of events or a casual drink. Come and enjoy a drink with us!

Ashby Lounge

Dubbed the “lighter and brighter” side…actually was the very dark and unloved side before the renovation works were undertaken. And all of this was still achieved by retaining the original wood panelling but selecting a colour palette that compliments the décor and topped off with an illuminated copper frieze around the perimeter. This lounge area now as an atmosphere that many of our drinkers seek and appreciate. There is a contactless “Sam” pool table and 5 conveniently placed TVs that allows a great viewing angle of sporting events from any area of the lounge.

Regency Lounge

The Esher-esque floor design and multi-coffered 3 tone ceiling are just some of the key features that get a lot attention. This makes the side of the “Bar” an interesting place to sit whilst enjoying your favourite beverage, admiring the Ogee fronted Marble bar top whilst being able to enjoy some events on the 2 conveniently placed TVs. With the original open fireplace retained, winter nights will surely be a cosy place to catch up with friends (whilst making new ones!) and loved ones too!

The Garden

New for 2021! The garden has been completely revamped and is now a new “outside/in” area. What was once a place to nip out during sunnier months has now been transformed into an area that is useable all year round. This is mainly down to the way we have created a sense of warmth by the choice of colours but also installing touch operated heaters above every table under cover. Therefore come rain or shine…you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors whilst having some additional comfort features. There are TVs well positioned and light background music to help enjoy the area but  whilst being respectful to our neighbours
