Wheel Inn (Bar)
14 CHAPEL STREET
“Locals pub, very friendly and relaxed. Radio 2 playing quite loudly in the background. Decent enough beer choice but nothing to get too excited about: mostly national with Jaipur and a couple of Dancing Ducks. Can be missed but as there are some great pubs in the area, it can easily slot in to a local pub crawl.“

“Very friendly community pub with a modern feel. There are six cask ales available at a decent price. While some of them will be readily available, you should get a few ticks from lesser-known Midlands micros. Styles concentrate on the sessionable UK staples (bitters, goldens). I had a late lunch here which was fantastic value and quite tasty to boot. Maybe not a destination but certainly worth checking out.“

“It would be hard to find many pubs more traditional than the Dead Poets Inn. Dark and atmospheric with multiple rooms to choose from (including a brighter more modern area near the back), it's a friendly place with eight beers. Some are less exciting, but there are offerings from the likes of Empire, Brunswick, Oakham and Abbeydale. They know their beer here, although they might be slightly restricted on ABV and styles by a more conservative clientele. Certainly worth a visit, although the beer is secondary to the atmosphere.“

“This is a community owned pub where locals have invested to keep it running. Very popular for Sunday lunches as we found. It is quite a large building with numerous rooms, there is also a community owned cafe behind called the spotted calf. There are 6 cask beers available but nothing really stood out for me. Friendly and busy, hopefully it continues to thrive.“

“This is a lovely old inn within the village of Holbrook, just outside Belper. On entering through the front it is initially very dark and takes the eyes a while to adjust. The bar is to the left and to the right are hidy-holes with tables in a series of small rooms. On our visit there was a beer festival on out the back in the conservatory where beers were racked up on a stillage. This is a really very decent little pub and is rightly popular.“

“Friendly pub with different rooms inside and a terraced area at the back leading onto a pleasant garden area. Beers were available from Thornbridge, Titanic, Taylor, Dancing Duck and Bass. We enjoyed our Titanic Plum Porter in the terrace at the rear f the pub.“

“An excellent quirky and welcoming pub. Real fire, comfy seats, friendly locals and a cracking range of ale. Definitely worth going out of your way to visit.“

“We went here Thursday 15th March 2012, this was the first time that I had been back here for about 4 years or so. Another pub that is very local for my dad (jammy git) cosy pub with flagstne floor, nooks and crannies, open fire and a friendly atmosphere. Good choice of 6 beers with offerings from Blue Monkey, Salopian, Oakham etc. Forgot how much I liked this place, and would love to get here again without leaving it quite so long. I am insanely jealous of my dad’s overabundance of good pubs within walking distance of his house, this area of Derbyshire has such a high quota of great pubs offering 6+ handpumps of really good beery offerings, it puts so many other areas to shame.“
