Visited on a Tuesday evening in September 2015 after a short stroll from the station. 3 Castle Rock beers plus 3 guests were available. All well kept and decently priced with a 20p Camra discount per pint. Barman was very chatty and friendly, there’s a little description in front of each beer. Picked up a few new beers and added them to the database. A good place to visit if changing trains in Derby, especially as the Brunswick is just around the corner

The place to go for everything railway - even an old digital clock in a style I’d completely forgotten about until now. The Alexandra is close to the station and also close to the Brunswick. They have eight or ten hand pumps with Castle Rock beers and guests. (Visited 15 February 2015).

Obvious a well-established community pub in the railway area and next to Brunswick Arms. A main room with the public bar decorated by railway memorabilia and a lounge with a rabbit, strange indeed! Four cask ales from Castle Rock and four guest ales supported by a decent bottled range. Polite service and relaxing atmosphere. Background music to our liking from Rush, Bad Company and Free. We stayed here until closing time enjoying the beers, music and friendly mood (last pub on our Sunday pub crawl in Derby 22.02.2015).

Visited february 2015, with beery friends. Oldstyle pub, with a train theme. Placed close to the station, very easy to find. Few beers on tap, served in good condition. Seemed a bit like a local mans pub.

Wonderful traditional railway pub near Derby station. Lots of Castle Rock beers, plus a few very interesting guest beers (including on my visit an English Gose). Great beer and service guarantee that you’ll never be ice cold in the Alex.

Really good boozer. Traditional decor and dartboard. Nice range of casks and a friendly welcome. Very close to the station.

A good place to drop by for a pint near the railway station. The selection here was good enough to keep me occupied for a few hours. If you do run out of things the Brunswick Inn is always just around the corner. This would be on my "must stop" list if I only had one day to take in all the pubs of Derby.
