Little Chester Ale House, Derby

Just to say that this place has had an internal alteration so that the bar is now on the right and enlarged. There are now 6 handpumps (previously 4), though I was told that only 5 are usually ever in use at once.

As previous posters have alluded to, the place is now run by the Hartshorn brewery (I believe Wentwell no longer brew and just run a micropub in Burton-on-Trent). Yesterday there were 4 Hartshorn beers on tap plus a guest (Brunswick Black Sabbath). Since I didn’t fancy a 6% beer for my first of the day, I went for the Hartshorn Reaper (4.9%), which was eminently drinkable.

And there are now two loos – though the ladies requires a key !

Thought I’d better report that they definitely still do food at lunchtimes. On my latest visit there were people eating ! However, I couldn’t actually see a menu, and didn’t ask because the beer range was decidedly uninspiring. Only 4 beers on out of 6 handpumps, and one of those was Doom Bar and two were from Salopian’s “standard” range. I had the Oracle which was OK.

6/10 – going downhill IMO.
