Was closed for a while, but has now been refurbished and reopened under the name of The WICK. The decor is sort of minimalist grey (not very inspiring). The bar is straight ahead as you enter – to the left and right are narrow areas featuring gidh stools and tables. Further back to the right is “the Little Winery” – a new area with cage stule plastic chairs and wine bottles arounf the walls. There is also (to the front) an old fireplace which is completely occupied by an enormous sofa !

There were 5 handpumps, but only two of them appeared to be in use. I tried the Dancing Duck Ay Up – which was OK. They are now concentrating on food here, and the menu featured sections headed Pizzas (all £8), burgers and “nibbles”. I didn’t eat so can’t comment further.

I have to report that service was pretty dire. Despite there only been one other couple in the pub, it took me almost 5 mins to get served.

This was the 12 (and final) stop of my latest Derby tour – so not surprisingly I can’t remember a lot about it ! However, I do remember being pleasantly surprised that is was much better than previous posters had led me to believe. There were 4 real ales available, including two from Dancing Duck. I tried the Abduction which was very nice. Not wildly exciting, but a pleasant enough place, and better than the other places in the immediate vicinity.

Had a very poor pint of Batemans Rosey Nosey on when I went at the beginning of the year, it was warm and slighty cloudy. Barmaid seemed to have no communications skills. Not a place I'd rush back too!

Not happy with the 'Wick. Have visited twice in recent weeks and it seems a case of a previously good pub gone downhill in pursuit of a quick buck. No real ales, poorly kept keg beers (Carling, Fosters etc) and a general feeling that the place needs a bit of care from a proper pub custodian rather than trying to make cash trading on past reputation when the pub was ran well by enthusiastic and skillful landlords..

They have Italian 'SKY' tv which hardly works and has no commentary so there goes an end to the busy nights for big sporting occasions.

Sad demise
