In October 2010, this Inn Keeper’s Lodge became a Travelodge. But don’t go there looking to drink anything alcoholic. It is not licensed … neither was its predecessor.
The Inn Keepers Lodge should not have been listed as such on BITE in the first place
It is the Toby Carvery next door, formerly the Chaddesden Park Hotel, which most Derbians know as the Chad Park that has the license. I eat and drink here fairly regularly. The Toby Carvery is normally very good and the food can be washed down with three real ales … which when I visited last week were Bass, Pedigree and Banks Bitter, all at £2.40 a pint.
There are much better kept (and sometimes cheaper) pints of Bass and Pedigree available in Derby. But overall, the little below par quality of the real ales, is offset by the quality and good value for money of the carvery.

|Real ales are now Pedigree, Bass & Banks's, not the best I've tasted but ok. Carvery still good |

|another very satisfactory stay here on a city break.|
the place seems to have a relaxed, welcoming feel to it.
only let down this time by the carvery being temporarily out of action during twixmas!
rooms, breakfast, beer, service are all very commendable.
2 cask ales on. pedigree and banks bitter.
frequent bus service into town if required.
a 9 again from me.

|Congratulations to the company (and thanks to everyone who contacted them) on the recent improvement of the quality of their real ales. I often visit here with my family and although I loved the food, I was always let down by the drink. Thankfully this no longer happens! This is now a nice friendly place with top food, (mostly) great staff and nice beer. Some may argue that it's one of the best things about Chad.|

|I too can say that I know of a number of M&B pubs where the cask ales are poor or have gone off.|
however with regard to this particular toby, I can only say that the speckled hen I had on both nights we stayed in Jan [reviewd april'09] was a tip-top pint.
Its a beer I know and one of my favourites, and this pub did it due justice.
