Have been in here several times now, but don’t seem to have got around to reporting on it before. Unfortunately I didn’t realise this before my latest visit, so I only have vague memories to go on (well it was my 7th pub of the day !). Anyway, it odes seem to be going down hill a bit. The range of real ales seems to have declined and now there isn’t much more than the Derby Brewery standard range. Because of that, on my last visit I decided to have a “craft keg”. Unfortunately the first one I chose (Kostritzer Schwarzbier ) defied the efforts of the barman to pour it. My second choice (Titanic Stout) got into the glass Ok, but unfortunately was so cold I spent the next 10 minutes trying to warm it up !

They also have a number (abour 40 ?) of bottles available, thoug I have never sampled those. Food is available though I can’t remember anything else. I expect it is rather pricey though. In general the place is designed to appeal to people who like to think they are hip, sampling the latest craft beer, and prepared to be ostentatious about showing how much they can afford to spend !

5/10 – rather too fashion conscious for my liking !

Amazing range of beers, I was on the real ale which was also good. The tap has more of a "bar" than "pub" feel to it but is still good. The downside is the beer garden which is small, dark and a bit grotty.

Great selection of authentic beers from around the world.

Similar to the nearby Exeter Arms, the Tap is now a little upmarket. It is the brewery tap for the Derby Brewery. Ales on from them were Little Belter, Navigation, Dashingly Dark, Business As Usual, On Tap & Hop Til You Drop. Guests were Titanic Lifeboat, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Goffs Camelot & Navigation Mayflower. One of only 2 pubs we visited in Derby without a real cider. Sat in a covered courtyard at the side. But you will get traffic noise from the main road here. Expensive, but decent pub.

Used to be called the Royal Standard. A bit trendy for my liking but good atmosphere and good beer. Has an expensive reputation but I had Hop till you drop or something, at 2.90 a pint.
