Leicester Arms, 90 Stoney Stanton Road
|These premises have been known by different names during their history:||FROM||TO||NAME|
|This name probably refers to the fact that the pub stands on a route to Leicester, although it may also refer to the arms of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester and favourite courtier of Elizabeth I.
In 1854 an inquest was held here. In the same year William Howe, brickmaker, mortgaged the pub to John Ralphs and Joseph Cash. In 1870 the executors of Joseph Cash sold the pub to W. Ratliff for £375. It remained a Ratliffs pub until 1899 when Ratliffs was taken over by Phillips and Marriott who valued the pub at £2,500.
It changed from the Leicester Inn to the Leicester Arms around 1912.
It closed in 1940 due to enemy action.|
