The Tap, formerly the Royal Standard, is Derby Brewing Companyís taphouse. Itís in a round-ended Victorian building close to the river. They had about sixteen beers on tap including some of their own plus guest casks and kegs.

Just over the bridge, actually called Derwent Street, from the city center. Corner pub with a half-moon bar serving a snug and a larger main room. More modern and trendy brick and wood outlook than other pubs we had been to in Derby. This was the only pub we visited that offered beers in thirds. We ordered five sample trays with five of their own beers from tap in each, £6.50 per tray, accompanied by cheddar cheese. In addition to their beers they had quite a few guest ales on cask and a well-selected range of international bottled beers. Fast and polite service. Background music from REM, Oasis and Red Hot Chili Peppers (visited 22.02.2015).

Visited a couple of times, latest february 2015 with beery friends. Modern style brewpub, in an old building. Rather spacy, and cosy place. Large bar, with a good selection of beers, served in good condition. Nice bottle selection as well. Both for the beery people, and not so beery ones :-). Friendly staff. Upstairs seatings.

This is a decent pub near the Derby QUAD that can be a stopover point between the station and the Old Silk Mill / Five Lamps. The house beers are nothing to get excited about but they do offer a couple of guest casks as well.
The food appears to be pretty standard fare though I did not order anything. Overall prices are in line with the rest of the pubs around here - a house pint should set you back about £2.50. Donít spend too long here but if you do find yourself needing to pass the time there are worse spots in Derby.

This is a pleasant place to have a few drinks. Their own beers are average so the fact that they offer tasting glasses is handy. Has a nice roof terrace with a view of the river.

Made a quick visit on the return to the Railway station. Seemed nice and open, modern feel in an old building, but it was very quiet when many of the other pubs were packed. Beer quality was fine, though choice not that exciting. It is worth visiting on a Derby crawl but itís not a pub you would seek out specially.

not a lot to add to the previous reviews. suffice to say i had a great time! the terrace is good if itís sunny. the one thing that lets it down is the standard of the beer! they really could keep it a bit better. the Exeter Arms was better

Went in here at 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Quick, friendly service. Interesting mix of old and new, but a pleasant place to sit and enjoy a beer. 6 hand-pulls on when I went in, I tried 4 from Derby Brewing Company, all drinkable, stayed here for an hour. Its around £2.60 up to £3.30 a pint, not bad. A recommended trip.

UPDATE JANUARY 2012: Beer quality not been great of late.
ORIGINAL REVIEW:Been too busy drinking here to review it, whoops... mix of exposed brick and white walls, two bars eiher side of a central staircase leading to a few secluded chairs and the roof terrace, ground floor outdoor area. 5 DBC beers, Landlord and four guests from the likes of Abbeydale, Black Hole, Ringwood, York. íThe Rackí offers 5 one-third pints of DBC and a bowl of cubed cheese for a fiver. Cafe-bar food available, sunday lunches planned. Foreign bottles are average choice and fantastically expensive. No íproperí cider, Thatchers Gold on draft. Staff all very co-ordinated with their black uniforms, always had pleasent and efficient service. Live music some nights, no piped music. Close to the bus stops so a popular place early evening. A worthy stop on a Derby crawl, especially if you want to rate DBC beers.

Derby Brewing Company has renovated the old Royal Standard and renamed it The Brewery Tap (Derbyís Royal Standard). The pub is a curious combination of old and new, with lots of sand-blasted walls and bleached wood, and a roof terrace with a view of the River Derwent. 10 real ales are on offer at any time, 5 from Derby Brewing and 5 guests. A special tasting rack of 5 third pints of the Derby brews is available, accompanied by some strong local cheese. There is also an expensive range of Belgium beers and other foreign bottled lagers.
