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

Barman was really surly and rude. Otherwise good selection and very well kept.

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.

Didnít spend a lot of time inside this pub as the beer festival I attended was out the back, but there appeared to be a good range of pumpclips and staff jolly decent. Not in the most desireable of areas but not too far from the town and close to the river.

Again, a very old building, just by the River, about halfway between The Alexandra Hotel and Exeter Arms (5-min each). Not particularly nice location, by a big industrial parking, but the river is on the other side. Small and effective stop with around 8 casks offering a varied range. A most worthy stop, very welcoming, but not in the cityís very top.

Another of Derby impressive old pubs. Arc shaped stone building which stands out in the now sparse former market area.
Very busy at lunchtimes and although I didnít try the food it did smell very good!
Good ale selection and a couple of rooms to choose from.

In the growing gloom of a winter evening, this is particularly ifficult to find. Near an industrial estate, by the river, but it is worth it. Very well kept and decent beer list, didnít investigate a bottle holding. A little basic inside but friendly and welcoming. Another good basic Derby boozer.

***UPDATE JANUARY 2012** Sold to local builder who plans on renovating into a bar and fish restaurant. He was a regular and so wants to keep the beer flowing. Good man!
*** CLOSED DECEMBER 2011*** May be reopened by a brewery in the future but may end up as flats.
Cracking little pub away from the throng. Used to be the market area, now just has the evening newspaper plant next door. Great beers from Oakham and Whim plus guests, HUGE rolls, really good lunchtime food, small patio with river views, worth the short walk out the centre to find, downriver from the Silk Mill and upriver from the Alex and the Brunswick.

I was there with DeepBlack in February - very quiet when we were there in the early afternoon. Great selection of cask ales - I had not time to go through them all. Didnít eat. Close to the Alexandra Hotel and the Brunswick.
