Hard to find and out of the way. Despite the modern exterior, the Smithfield is as traditional a pub as youíre likely to find. Selection is small - five handpull cask ales and four ciders with no craft keg/bottle - so what you see is what you get. Which on. Paper isnít bad: Bass, two Oakham beers, one from Whim. Unfortunately the pint I had was a bit warm and possibly past its best so a notch or two down for that. Still, Iíd recommend giving it a go.

Visited on 21st May 2016. Ideal for the bus and beer rater as next to Derby bus depot alongside the river Derwent in the industrial end of town. Nice 2 roomed pub with a central bar. Quiet on our visit but have been here on a Derby match day and it was heaving. Beer range is decent enough featuring local beers. Quality was good. Decent prices. Nice spot, more of a solid locals pub than a must visit raters mecca.

A basic pub close to the city centre but in a bit of a backwater. There are two rooms with the bar down the middle. Itís a localsí sort of place and was very noisy (but set to get noisier as there was a karaoke session about to start). The beer range was small but good. I donít know if they do meals but there were barn eggs for sale alongside the pickled eggs, cheese / ham rolls and pork pies. (Visited 15 February 2015).

Yet another pub by the river Derwent, this time a few minutesí walk from Exeter Arms in the direction of the railway station. Rather shabby surroundings, but it should be nice at the patio by the riverside in the summer. Inside there are three rooms; a lounge, the main room and a one for pool and billiard tables. A community pub with a modern outlook and a long bar serving at least eight cask ales, five of them operating at our visit. The housebeer Smithy is made by Derby brewing, A quite relaxing place with karaoke on Sundays, mostly Elvis and Sinatra tunes. (Sunday pub crawl in Derby 22.02.2015).

This place might be under different ownership now. If you can get past the quirky hours (mostly centered around the people coming off shifts and football matches) and the location (tucked away in an industrial part of Derby) it is worth sticking your head in. Located about halfway between the Exeter Arms and the railway station the beer choices here are simple but to the point.

On the occasions I have visited there were three regular taps as well as a handful of rotating casks. Nothing here is exceptionally rare or unique but they did seem to try for a local flavor. Food can be ordered although Iíve never done so. I would not go out of my way to visit but it could be a nice diversion when heading other places.

A good selection of real ales in a good condition. What can you ask for more (2010).

An old fashioned boozer with a good range of ales and good service. Not particulatrly appealing, and not the sort of place Iíd choose to hang around for long.
