first time in the pub today, beer is the best kept i have tasted for ages and the food is worthy of an award. i cant fault the staff as they are attentive, friendly and easy-going. well worth a visit as its served by buses and trains and the management make you feel at home. call in and give it a try one day

Doombar and Pedigree on my last visit waiting for my train. Can get a mixed bag of customers from chavs to suits. Some members of staff are okay but some need a lesson in communication skills. Pricey, but then so is The Widows next door. Hit and miss. Handy for the station.

Miraculously has an Everards Tiger on amongst the array of fizz and nitro keg lagers.

Has a tidy looking American Pool hall but the Station Inn, Alex or Brunswick are much better pubs.

Often empty or full of football fans and has been the scene of a few Derby / Forest fights.

A drinking barn for the unwashed masses. A mistake for the discerning drinker coming out of the station when there are so many decent pubs in the vicinity. Went out for a smoke only to be joined by a group of youths drunk/stoned/imbalmed on something who were mooning at passing cars... this was a little after mid-day.... must be 'fun' in the evenings.

Seemed a bit dead when I went in. Four customers including me and the person I was with. Spacious open interior, large multi table pool lounge. The staff seemed friendly enough too. Any real pub fanatic should head two minutes down the road to the Brunswick or Alex though.

Not a place I go regularly but it's nicely decorated and very good on match days.

A rather soulless attempt to create an American bar inside a large cavernous building with minimal décor and an atmosphere to match. One cask beer available Everards Tiger which was drinkable but nothing special. Large room out the back with half a dozen pool tables. Sky Sports on a couple of plasma’s which was what lured me in, to check the scores in the test match. Can’t really see me repeating the experience should I be in Derby again, especially as the excellent Brunswick is only a couple of minutes away.

Beer is a bit pricey but the quality is decent and if you only want to stop off for one between trains this is a sound place to go...

I visited the Waterfall three weeks ago,
whilst waiting for a train, I was in the pub
for about an hour and a half, i thought it was
very pleasant, clean and had great atmosphere.
The staff were really friendly, i got talking to the manager there, Dave, a very friendly bloke and very cute!

Only tend to go in on match days so my view is conditioned by that; has a great atmosphere on a Saturday afternoon & I usually go in after the match and watch the Prem live game. They have Tiger and now Adnam's Broadside on tap & both up to good standard.

We visited the Waterfall on Sunday in desperation for lunch as the Brunswick only had limited sandwiches and the Alexandria wasn't doing food. It is a cavernous place and was almost empty. The one Real Ale (Everards Tiger I think) was OK but not great. The food was pretty average, but quick to arrive. Not a place I would visit again by choice.
