    It was in The Lamb pub, we went in there before the King's head as we were a bit early!

    Hi the bear is actually in the White Hart pub in Ashby which is just opposite Ciros. The lamb is a little bit further down the road on the same side. The White Hart is a 17th century coaching Inn and the story is that the landlord kept a real live bear in a pit in the floor which he would release if the customers got too rowdy at closing time! I can imagine that would be effective at clearing the bar! The stuffed bear has been in the floor for as long as I can remember ..... which is a very long time! It is also said that Dick Turpin stayed at the White Hart .... not sure how true that story is however because it is claimed he stayed in nearly every pub in Leicestershire ! There are also believed to be tunnels under the White Hart pub leading directly to Ashby castle .... just a little potted history of Ashby :) Ashby Castle is well worth a visit - said to be the inspiration for the story of Ivanhoe.
