|The Brunswick is a very convenient pub for the station and has an excellent range of ales and ciders. There were 16 ales and 13 ciders - Leatherbritches Not Festivale, Everards Original, Beacon & Tiger, Brunswick White Feather, Triple Hop, Rocket, The Usual, Railway Porter & Black Sabbath, Batemans XXXB & Gold, Black Country Pig on the Wall, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Great Heck Patrick and one other I don't recall. The ciders and perries were Thistly Cross Jaggy Thistle, Westons Country Perry, Old Rosie & Rosie's Pig, Gwynt y Ddraig Haymaker, Scrumpy Wasp Amnesia, Abrahalls Medium Still Cider, Cock Eyed Mad Jack & Copper Beech, Aspalls Cyderkyn, Barbourne Painted Lady & Hopped Cider & Millwhites Rum Cask. The ciders and perries are printed on a list. So I assume they rarely change. The pub itself has a number of different rooms. My only slight grumble would be with the bar staff. They weren't the most responsive and didn't seem to be enjoying their jobs. Other than that, there was little to choose between this and the Alexandra just around the corner. They were both excellent pubs.|

|Just to say they've started doing their own Brunswick Discount Card, with similar reductions to those who have CAMRA cards. |
Otherwise, no change - still one of my 10 favourite pubs in the country !

|This is a proper real ale pub. A huge selection of beers, 16 handpulls in total, including Brunswick ales, Everards Beacon Bitter, Everards Tiger Best Bitter and Timothy Taylor Landlord. A nice pub inside and isn't too far from the train station. The staff seem to be quite knowledgeable about the beers. The prices are quite reasonable too. Great pub.|

|I cannot agree with the previous remark, The Brunswick is a friendly place and serves great ales and food. A must if you come to Derby by train|

|I can only agree with the earlier comment about bar staff ‘attitude’.|
We called in for a swift half about 10pm on Saturday night to find this multi-room pub almost empty. The four staff behind the bar were chatting to a few blokes propping it up. After a few moments, my partner ordered a drink from a young blond girl (Aussie/NZ accent?). She then returned to chatting with the customers she had been talking to, about exchanging email addresses and such lovely stuff.
After about 30 seconds of this entertainment, and with a train to catch at the nearby station, my partner asked ‘Are we going to get served’? The chit-chat stopped instantly, and the young girl turned to a male colleague and said we ‘were rude’. I pointed out that ignoring a customer is rude. Her male colleague then intervened and politely served us, as she had failed to do.
Whilst I can understand a member of staff ‘chewing the cud’ with someone she likes at the bar, this should never be whilst customers wait. Owners of The Brunswick please note: There are far too many wonderful pubs in Derby to ruin yours with an ill-mannered young fool.
