A large pub and music venue with eleven cask ales on tap.
The Lion has been left standing almost alone on the side of a hill whilst everything else around it has been demolished, apart from the impressive Shipstone brewery buildings across the way. It looks like an ordinary red brick Victorian pub on the outside but inside itís more like a warehouse, with bare brick walls and lots of open space. Near the bar thereís a well-like shaft down which you can peer into the cellar some way below. Outside thereís a pleasant patio and sloping lawn with picnic tables. The beer was in good condition, the staff were friendly and they offer a 15p a pint discount for CAMRA members. (Visited 15 July 2012).

Handy for the tram, this large pub enjoys a pleasant atmosphere (although this is often spoilt in this writerís opinion by amateur bands) and a fairly large range of real ales. In general, these are usually in fine condition. These often include offerings from local breweries in Nottingham and Derby. However, to my mind their selection often has a few too many dull middle-of-the-road brown bitters. Definitely worth calling in at if youíre already on the tram, the Lion is perhaps not worth going out of oneís way for.

Again a haddonsman introduction to this place. Large red bricked building situated close to the old Shipstones brewery and offering a great view of the place. There was a Christmas beer festival on during our visit and we also ate here. Can recommend both the beer and the food.

Large brick-built U-shaped pub with patio overlooking the old Shipstones brewery. Several regular Batemans beers alongside a half dozen guests from micros. Some continental bottles. Occasional beer festivals.

Great value food makes this an ideal lunch stop on a beer-by-tram crawl. Real fires, wireless internet, breweriania... itís not just the beer thatís impressive. Seconds away from the Shipstone Street tram stop. Great atmosphere and well kept beers.
