Up to 16 beers on handpump plus 8 draught ciders. Owned by Everards but leased from them by the licensees. The on site brewery is currently (early 2015) operated independently from both Everards and the licensees although it remains a brewpub to all intents and purposes.
Visited 10/09/16. A major drawback here - it was a matchday so the three Newcastle fans I was with were not allowed in. I went in for my tick and then scarpered. Dropped back in a couple of hours later for another. Top marks to the staff. A guy who was the bar manager (I presume) was on the door and apologised for the home fan rule (enforced by the local police) and suggested other pubs to go in to. He also recognised me on my later return visit and was chatty. Scored low for ambiance as it was dead (more staff than customers on the second visit) and pretty bland inside. Decent enough array of beers.
Decent place a couple of minutes walk from the station. Thereís plenty of space and rooms to relax in and enjoy the decent range of cask beer.
Features beers from the local area and the Brunswick brewery. The beer is well looked after and prices are decent.
Had a decent Sunday lunch here on last visit washed down with a couple of beers. A good stop in Derby
The last pub of my trip to Derby and in terms of selection the best, a good mixture of styles and breweries. The two ales I sampled were top notch and the service was genial, although there werenít many punters in at the time. A lot of rooms to choose from, although the pub itself could do with a bit of spring cleaning. Very handy for the rail station on your stagger home.
A nice old pub originally built to serve the railway cottages and industry around the station. There are several rooms with lots of wood panelling and itís quite cosy. There are 16 hand pumps, with ten of their own beers on alongside some other local brews when we were there.

Visited latest february 2015 with beery friends. Our first pub-stop in Derby. Rather large pub, close to the trainstation. Oldstyle pub, with several rooms. Good range of beers, both their own and guests as well. Beers were not served in the best condition, and it the staff seemed a bit tired when we visited.
One of the many great real ale pubs in Derby. This is a well-established brewpub situated just a few minutesí walk from the railway station. An L-shaped bar serving different rooms and snugs. On our visit they had six of their own beers on cask, a few more guest ales and ciders, all together 16 active hand-pumps, in addition to eight interesting craft beers and a decent range of bottles. Crowded but still very relaxed atmosphere on a Friday night. Friendly service (visited 20.02.2015).
Multiroomed pub near Derby station. Three breweries are well-represented: Everards, Brampton and the in-house Brunswick. A trio of Batemanís on as well as a few wisely chosen guests and some non-UK bottles. A classic boozer and rightly so.
Excellent boozer - multi-roomed, warm, with nice furniture and a positive feeling. Good range of local cask ales. Very convenient for the station too.

Step outside Derby station and ignore the cluster of pubs directly opposite you. Instead, turn right and walk the extra couple of hundred yards down the road - itís worth that little effort. This is a large place, spread over 4 adjoining rooms. Itís big, uncluttered and rough around the edges, with bare stone floors in some areas and faded carpets in others. But the bar has a huge choice of ales and ciders. I counted 14. Being a brewpub thereís always a big selection of Brunswick and other local brews but the range is not just confined to the local area - nationally respected brewers like Arbor and Dark Star sometimes feature here. I often slip in for a swift half if I accidentally/deliberately miss my connecting train.
