This is a fine place to stop for a drink or two during a crawl of the best pubs in Derby. Nicely located halfway between the Furnace Inn on one side of town and the Alexander Hotel on the other thereís no reason not to at least stick your head in the door.

The selection was nice though as with many pubs the biggest beers are in the ballpark of 5% ABV. For the ticker the beers turn over regularly and should be fresh. I look forward to seeing what their festival offerings are later this summer.

A very nice place to have real ales. Became one of my favourite places because thay had Thornbridge beers on tap (2010).

Not a bad find, opposite the Dolphin pub on quite a busy road, four real ales all kept very well. Looked like this is a good music pub as band setting up whilst we were there. Bar staff very good and appeared quite knowledgeable.

Another very old Derby pub, just by the Dolphin and less than 5 minutes away from the sublime Flower Pot, so you may stop by for a quickie on the road to other interesting places. Itís not a must, but itís a nice, very authentic pub, quiet and welcoming.

On my first Derby visit this place was being renovated but the next time I went it had reopened. A good selection of ales, about 8 on including the excellent Derby Triple Hop.

Now re-opened. Not been in yet, but plan to soon. If it returns to itís past glory, could be a very good ale pub.

haddonsman  (56) Derby, England | May 10, 2005| Updated May 5, 2009
UPDATE 2009 Now reopen, 8 beers on cask + 2 gravity, Purity beers always stocked, bring your own food UPDATE DECEMBER 2007 Yet another change of licensee has seen the beer range revert to fairly blandly kept regionals casks. Not worth a special visit. brbrUpdate: Quite smart inside, clearly set out as an eating pub rather than a drinking pub. 8 pumps but just four beers on, had a slightly dodgy Bass. Needs to bring in four guests alongside its four regulars to make it a worthwhile stop on a Derby crawl.
