Free beer... well almost. The price of the Sam Smiths OBB is ridiculously cheap. I ordered two pints and pulled out a fiver and two pound coins, it came as a complete shock to the system to find I only needed the note and got handed one pound forty change! The place itself is dark and atmospheric as it was once an abbey. The landlord was friendly and efficient and the food looked to be decent. The Old Brewery Bitter was fine although one of our party tried the wheat beer and felt the need to empty the majority of it into a large planter containing a bush. The pub's situation is very pleasant on a summer's day being only a stone's throw from the river Derwent, part of a world heritage site.

I am pleased to report that the Abbey has now almost fully recovered from the trauma of Humphrey Smith's totally disastrous decision to let a couple of completely inexperienced kids try to run the pub. During their tenure of the Abbey, it was only kept alive thanks to the heroic efforts of barmaids Nikki and Philippa. Thankfully the new tenants, Kevin and Sue seem to be intent on keeping up the high standards set by Lee and Sally Jackson. The mass exodus of regulars after Lee and Sally departed last November has been reversed and the atmosphere is starting to buzz again – and the OBB is as good as ever. Good luck to the new management and thanks again to Nikki and Philippa for keeping the Abbey alive.

Good historic interior but beer is not great, atmosphere is OK. All in all only 5/10

The sad news for Abbey regulars is that Lee and Sally will be leaving for pastures new at the end of next week. In a little under two years the couple have transformed the rather moribund atmosphere at the Abbey into a vibrant, welcoming and popular village local. The new tenants have got a really hard act to follow.

Lee and Sally are taking over the County and Station Hotel, a dozen miles north along the A6 in Matlock Bath. I wish them the very best of luck, but given their track record at the Abbey, I will not be at all surprised to soon see the Station and County high on the list of top CAMRA pubs in Derbyshire.

Pint of Taddy lager and Sam's bitter for less than 4 quid! Unbeatable.
Authentic olde style little boozer with a welcoming open fire. Don't miss it.
