As others have noted, this is supposed to be the oldest pub in Derby, it definitely looks authentic enough. I sat in the back room which was pleasant enough if a bit dull, the girls behind the bar looked pretty bored to be perfectly honest. Beer choice was limited but I drank a tasty enough pale ale which was served in top condition. Not a pub for a long session but worth a look for its historical relevance.

Genuinely old pub with a great ambience. Several interconnecting rooms, with always something going on. Beer range is reasonable, but a bit bland - they do have Bass from the jug though. Food is excellent, especially their vegetable chilli !

An olde worlde black and white timber framed pub that claims to be the oldest in Derby. There’s a central cobbled corridor and three small rooms with low ceilings and lots of character. We went in the bottom bar, where there’s a bell on the counter to summon the bar staff from upstairs. It’s cosy and worth a look - and the beers were in good condition - although the beer range is limited to nine rather ordinary casks. (Visited 14 February 2015).

Visited february 2015 with beery friends. A really old, cosy town pub. Should be the oldest in Derby. Really cosy multi room pub, lots of wood and pictures and atmosphere. A nice fireplace as well. Not impressed with the beer range, but the beers were served in good condition. Go there for the atmosphere, not the beer :-).. They do nice pub food as well, by the look of it. Next time I wouldn´t mind eating there :-)

A tiny, old city pub close to the cathedral. Very tight, noisy, and crowded on our visit on a Saturday night, still friendly ambiance and fast service, and we even found a place to sit down after a while. Eight different cask ales on offer. A pub with historical interest, well worth visiting. Nice and large terrace outside for beer enjoyment in the summertime (Celebrating the Rams on top of the league, visited 21.02.2015).

With claims of being the oldest pub in Derby this place certainly feels the part. Low ceilings and small rooms make it feel cozy even when the place is not busy.

The selection of cask ales was decent as was the price for a lunch. The food is not gourmet by any stretch of the imagination but gets the job of absorbing the alcohol done well enough. With the Flower Pot and Old Silk Mill a short walk away you should at least stick your head in here to find out if there’s anything of interest.

A very cozy pub with small rooms. The real ale selection is not the special one. Adnams, Black Sheerp and so on... (2010).

I like it in here. Beer selection is restricted to a few national ale brands- Bass, Black Sheep etc but very well kept and a lovely old world pub.

An intimate pub experience with lots of tiny rooms, low-ceilings and almost a museum through its age, but the beer range is not extraordinary. Still, it’s so close to the Flower Pot that not popping in for a half would be a crime even if you have only one day in Derby.
