Project Detail

The Knight & Garter, Leicester

Regeneration Project of the Year Award 2018 Finalist

The Knight & Garter is a new luxury pub and restaurant that has regenerated the former Molly O’Grady’s site on Hotel Street.

Contributing to the wider regeneration in Leicester city centre Lanes area, the Knight & Garter has exploited the demolition of the indoor market, including by creating an outside terrace.

Now welcoming more than 2,000 customers per week, the Knight & Garter is encouraging a new clientele to the area, encouraging a better atmosphere and a safer environment for visitors.

Project Overview

The site has long housed a pub, with the original premises demolished in 1904 when the current building took its place. It was then the first building in the city to have fully electric lighting on the outside. 

Now a complete rewiring of the building has introduced an environmentally friendly LED and motion sensor lighting system plus external LED lighting.

The interior has been given modern twists and features, including an open kitchen and a prohibition era style revolving book case for entering the restaurant.

The surrounding area has seen further regeneration with the refurbishment of the 45 West Bar and independent businesses moving in. The New Market Square is now being regularly used for events.
