user reviews of Markeaton, Derby

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

It was crowded, noisy but good atmosphere. Beer was OK I suppose. Not great by any means, but I would say adequate and inoffensive.

Contrary to what has been said, I found the food very high quality. Yes it's a chain pub, but don't let that put you off. Good staff, good beer, good atmosphere.

The Markeaton is a large rambling late 1930s pub which over the years has undergone several radical makeovers and is now one of M&Bs Ember Inns. So, if you are familiar with the Ember brand, the Markeaton will hold no real surprises.

It is clean, comfortable, but bland; the staff are friendly and it serves a selection of 3 or 4 mainstream cask ales (Bass and Pedigree seem to be permanent fixtures, with a couple of guests) which are normally all in reasonable condition. Food wise, I guess that the menu in the Markeaton is pretty much the same as the menus in most other Ember Inns; in other words, bog standard pub food, the quality of which seems to vary from average to very poor.

In summary, the Markeaton is OK, but there are MUCH better places to drink and eat in Derby.

A decent place for a pint, not the cheapest but certainly not unreasonable either. The lagers on draft always seem to be spot on, and the interior's welcoming as well which helps. Unfortunately, it's very similar to every other chain pub of its ilk...

Same company as the Broadway down the road (furnace inns?). Inside is nice (like the boardway), staff seemed pleasnat and the beer was nice but again the food was naff!
