The Falstaff is situated in the southern backstreets of Derby, in what appears to be a multi-ethnic area. Its 3 rooms ooze character. Most people were in the main bar area. You got the feeling that you could leave and come back here in 5 years time and exactly the same people would be sat there! But they were friendly. The room at the rear holds a pool table and there is a smaller lounge. The 4 ales are all brewed on site - Slender Man, Fistful Of Hops, Phoenix & Smiling Assassin. I had the Phoenix, which was a bit too hoppy for my liking. No real cider is served. Worth the trip out of the city centre though.

Both my previous quibbles seem to be being addressed. They do now (temporarily ?) have a dark beer available, as they are participating in “mild in May”. And Steph does have some qualities similar to the infamous Polly – namely the tendency to be constantly cleaning the place !

P.S. also just got around to drinking the Hades - see Ye Olde Dolphin for reason for celebration.

Well I find I hard to believe there is anyone who DOESN'T rave about this pub ! I would give it 7/10 even if it only sold Sharps Doom Bar !!!!

As it is, I had a very nice pint of Smiling Assassin (5.2%) and bought a bottle of Hades (15.4%) for future consumption.

Absolutely brilliant place, full of various memorabilia. One room dedicated to Offilers brewery, and passageway full of huge signs on way to gents. Very friendly staff and locals, though I guess they may be a but cliquey to some. [ Trick is to get there first, and act like you've been going there for years ! ]

Be careful not to sit in "bullshit corner" though !!!

Can only find 2 things wrong with this pub
1) no stout / porter
2) Polly isn't the barmaid !

9/10 - am tempted to give an unprecedented 10 !!!

Well don't know what people rave about in this place the pub is very hard to find and a little dissappointing when you get there. Ales are on the whole good but not my first choice.

Another must-do when in Derby even though it's a bit of walk (20 to 25 minutes)from the centre. They only sell their own brewed beers and we had Poseiden and Fistfull of Hops. The preceding pint to those two had turned and the landlord/owner changed them immediately. I wish him well.
