First impressions here weren’t good. There was loud music playing when I entered. But on getting to the bar the noise had subsided. For some reason the speakers are right over the entrance doorway ! [ But music was still not really necessary ]

Once ensconsed at the bar though, you are amid a plethora of paraphernalia. Beermats plastering the bar, t-shirts hanging from the ceiling, along with dried hops and a collection of hats. There is even a red phone box – which appears to be in working order.

7 or 8 beers on tap, including 3 (possibly more) of their own brewery beers. I tried the Bullet, which was a darkish beer. It was OK, but by no means the best I tried that day.

There was a board advertising a limited range of food – which appeared to be somewhat expensive. I’m not sure if this was the full menu though.

7/10 – just lacking a certain something

Actually a hotel with pub part accessed from side entrance. Lots of wood paneling, covered with film pictures (mostly old) with what little wall space remaining taken by pubby artefacts. Old red phone box in one corner. Food being served at tables when we arrived, which smelt OK. The barmaid was very friendly & helpful, offering us a three thirds taster of their home brews for £3.20. Sadly, none tasted great to us, a comment other BITE reviewers have made, to my palate an odd antiseptic flavour to a couple of them. There were other offerings on at the bar which we didn't try. If this place could improve its beer we’d gladly return, but Derby’s no place to be so-so on that front.

Lovely pub. Lots of bric a brac in here well worth a visit but the beer is not to my taste. Try a pedigree. Beer garden probably the best in Derby

The beers weren't great but is worth a visit to a fantastic building. We had Passchendael, Big Willy and Bullet which was the best of those. We ate and food was good.

Called in late on a Thursday night with the lady wife after watching Derbyshire Falcons. Needless to say we were pretty cold and looking forward to a decent pint having eschewed the over-priced fizz at the Racecourse Ground. The place was pretty empty and the bar person was a little tardy in getting up out of his seat to serve us. We bought pints of Mr.Grundy's Golden Dawn which was pleasant enough but lacked a little bite. The doors to the place were flung wide open and it felt a bit parky but maybe this was just the after effects of an evening spent viewing cricket. The decor is fascinating, from a collection of hats to photo's of movie stars there is plenty to look at including a red telephone box. Well worth a second visit.
