Comfortable enough on a quiet Thursday afternoon, looks to have had a refurb and is slightly food orientated with prices to match. Five handpumps but only had Doom Bar and Oakham Citra on, no contest really.

Visited the pub today, very friendly lady serving who was quite happy to let us have a sample try before you buy. They had Amber Gold, St Austell's Tribute and their House ale brewed in Wirksworth which seems to have improved in taste since my last visit. Nice warm fire to match the warm welcome.

Also visted the Black's Head nearby, a surperb little pub, again with a very friendly lady at the bar who was also happy to let us sample the ale before buying. I can't see this pub listed on the site but I do recommend it to you.
had a nice blonde ale brewed by Greene King as well as a guest ale by Milestone.

Visited yesterday and thought it very good...warm (coal fires lit) and very friendly.
Excellent beer in the form of Wirksworth brewery and another local which I forget.

Handy for the railway and the local farmers' market

Is this the worst pub in Derbyshire? Probably not, but it's doing its best. With fireless fireplaces, stone cold radiators and the foulest beer (which, apparently, "the locals like"), it was unsurprising to find the bar empty. There's absolutely no need to visit this pub when the much better 'Black's Head' is only 50 yards away and 'the Royal Oak' is just around the corner.

Two distinct halves to this pub, one half full of families and the other full of youths who seemed to be either very drunk or high on something; -seemed a bit early in the afternoon for that to me. Anyway the front bar seemed to attract a rum bunch but the pub's own ale is very nice and the pool table only costs 50p so I had a lovely time. Also, the sozzled youngsters were putting some excellent tunes on the clearly fantastic juke box so we were glad they were there.
