After a full renovation, the former Time Bar (located right next door to Leicester Train Station) is now open!The new name takes its inspiration from the building's original purpose as a sorting office and parcel yard for British rail.Come and join us in the relaxed new surroundings, with lots on offer including real ales, Great British fodder, all day brunch, coffees and fantastic lunches and evening meals.A great place to meet friends for a pre or post Tigers or Foxes matches. Ideal for meeting clients for a coffee. Fantastic new restaurant for birthday parties and family celebrations.Quote from Clive, a train commuter, "I purposely catch the later train now so I can enjoy the wonderful warm

Went here for the real ale and enjoyed the Steaming Billy. The service was spot on from very friendly staff. We went and sat in the far room wher the dartboards are so we could have a quiet drink. This was spoiled, not the pub's...fault, by one of the only other two people in there. Not only was she loud but she never shut up for the time we were in. How she managed to breath I don't know. And it was only four p.m.. We left after 10 minutes. We will go back though.More

Entered on a busy Saturday early evening and stood at the bar and waited patiently be served, lots of gins and cocktails and long drinks that take ages to pour, I only wanted a pint of ale, so I waited and waited and waited patiently...again and again and again until then observing other punters waltzing up and being served immediately at which point I decided to depart. Please sort your bar staff out Billy! Albeit the Security staff greeted me in and thanked me again on my way out.More

We had tickets to see the Leicester Tigers play the weekend and pre-booked 2 booths at the Parcel Yard. Although the place was super busy, the staff (Tara & Sophie) were really helpful and attentive, nothing was too much trouble for them. We had pre-ordered...food which came out on time and was great, a few in our party had the steak sandwich, others had roast beef and everyone was impressed. Good choice of beers and great selection of gin. Big thanks also to Eanna for booking for us. We will definitely be doing this again when we visit Leicester.More

Over from Nottingham by train for comedy at The Y Theatre across the road on East Street. Friendly welcome from the barman. Good range of drinks, particularly gins, but only Bad Apple or Somersby (from memory) cider on draft. We were slightly peckish and so...had the duck gyozas and the veggie ones, which were very good texture and flavour. Decent value given the quality. Having the screens showing the train departures in real time is very helpful and we relied on them for timing our departure when we returned after the gig before our train.More

Called in here as I was staying in an hotel close by. I was impressed by the range of real ales and the service at the bar was very prompt and very polite and helpful. The vegan burger that I had was really good and...tasty and after being told that there would be a bit of a wait it arrived very quickly. I could have done without the background "music" but that is probably just me...... It was a place that seemed to attract quite a pleasant crowd. Certainly a place I would return to when I am next in Leicester and of course it is perfect for the station.More

I'm a bit of a gin 'ticker' and love to try gins I haven't had before - Cat & Kyra were both so helpful - nothing was too much fuss. I got through about 5 I hadn't had before, and they helped with tonic and...garnish suggestions. If we're ever back in Leicester, we're straight back to the Parcel Yard!More

The best bar I’ve ever been to in my life. Fantastic service, value for money and the only place I’ll go on a Friday/Saturday night I Leicester! The security for the bar are amazing too! Very polite, friendly and professional! Not like most “bouncers” in...town! Especially the tall bearded chap, great banter and customer service. 10/10!!More

Yes children can eat here.. we also have high chairs. Would recommend to book a table instead of walking in due to high demand and to avoid disappointment☺️
