I stumbled across the "Cap" whilst out walking and what a pleasant find it was. As a man over a certain age, it was like revisiting my early drinking year's as a youngster. I was pleasantly surprised to find a real traditional pub that still...More

I have been visiting the Cap and Stocking regularly for several years and its fortunes and atmosphere have been very mixed, largely due to the landlord at any particular time. I've been in at times when it was empty and more than once when it...More

A hidden gem in Kegworth. Great pint of Bass from the jug. Just Like pubs used to be. Well worth a visit.

Great bass from the jug (historically the pub's prime attraction) but limited other cask ales. Not open during the daytime in the week and doesn't do food (missed opportunities). With such little choice in Kegworth now, this pub is shooting itself in the foot.
