Visited february 2015 with beery friends. Larger city pub, within walking distance from the city center. Nice spacy pub, with a good range of beers. The beers are served in good condition, and with a smile from the friendly staff. This beery pub is for sure worth a visit. Think they from time to time make small festivals in the pub as well.

An excellent, busy, real ale pub at the edge of the city center, not far from the old Derby Cathedral. Several adjoining rooms; one with a mini beer festival at our visit, and another room for live concerts where Stan Webb and his Chicken Shack were playing British bluesrock. The mini beer festival was devoted to eight beers from the Black Iris Brewery that used to be on the premises in Derby, but has now moved to Nottingham. A new brewery, Frontier, has taken its place at the pub. In addition to the beers on gravity, there were eight operating hand-pumps serving ales from regional breweries. Black Sabbath music in the background. Hardworking but friendly staff. During a weekend in Derby we visited more than 10 great pubs, and we all agreed that this was the best of them. However, disgusting gents prevent the pub from a higher score (visited with Are, Dag Erik, Knut and Johnny 20.02. and 21.02.2015).

Not too far down the street from the Five Lamps the Flower Pot makes a good stopping off point for a trip into Derby. The selection of casks is usually fairly interesting and the prices are very fair (especially if you want to get a number of ticks as most half pints are under £1.50).

There is often music or some food special each night as well. I have yet to order food here but the menu looks to be basic pub fare. This is definitely worth a look while doing the rounds in Derby. If not then keep walking towards either the Furnace Inn or Old Silk Mill.

One of the best selections of cask beers in Derby. A good reason to come back (2010).

Terrific pub with a large selection of house brewed beers, all of which I found quite tasty. The bar staff is topps! and quite knowledgeable about the ales they are pulling. Super friendly regulars really enjoy there lagers and bitters. The concert venue in the back room adds a great bit of atmosphere to the weekends. A must visit for anyone in Derbyshire. Cheers

Not my favourite Derby pub. A good ale selection, particularly there own Headless range, but rather run down. The atmosphere seems to vary from visit to visit, because of the mixed clientele, and on some occasions it isn’t the sort of place I like to hang around.

There is something about this place... Humongous, varying selection totally fit for the ticker and popular enough to be in good condition. Large than it initially appears, but it feels cozy anywhere thanks to well-done room separation. I could spend a whole day here. I think this may be one of my favourite pubs in Britain. Consider it a must. And of course the staff is knowledgeable and the locals at the bar seem to have this tendency to speak.. of all things.. about beer..
