A lovely old pub and whilst there was a reasonable number of ales, they weren't overly-inspiring when compared with what else Derby has to offer - ales were Brains The Rev James, St Austell Proper Job, Greene King Abbot, Sharps Doom Bar, Bass, Purity Ubu, Robinsons Trooper, Timothy Taylor Landlord & Sharps Atlantic. No real cider was available. Thatchers Heritage had run out and not been replaced. With time ticking on, we spent very little time in here, as we could still fit in one more pub before our train home!

Well, Lizzie is back ! Unfortunately she’s off on her globetrotting again in a few days time, so you need to be quick to catch her.

In other news they’ve started doing a range of specials for £4. The vegetable chilli was excellent ! Beer range remains as before, reasonable but a bit bland. At least they still do Bass from the jug.

One of oldest pubs in the City. Dates from 1530s, lots of tudor-style.cosy and comfortable. Interesting selection of ale, Draught Bass, Greene King Abbot, Marston's Pedigree, Sharp's Doom Bar, Skinner's Betty Stogs and Timothy Taylor Landlord, plus guests. Kept and served well.

Just logging in again to report that the gorgeous / wonderful / charismatic Lizzie has now left !

Apart from that nothing has changed. I recommend their special mixed grill - excellent value at £5.95.

I will be back - once my broken heart has mended !!!

This is a great genuinely old pub – I try and make it here every time I visit Derby. Four interconnected rooms with low beams, and comfortable seating – all to the left of the main entrance. [ Kitchens and toilets to the right ]. It is said to be haunted, but I don’t know about that.

They have a range of 6 or 7 real ales available, but most of them are common ones like Black Sheep and Landlord. There are usually a couple of guests, but on my latest visit even they were from Moorhouses and Brains. [ Have been more unusual ones in the past ] Bass and Pedigree are available from the jug if that’s your sort of thing.

Food is available and I have eaten here in the past – but not for some time. From what I remember the meals are expensive, but really good and with large portions.

Unlike the Flowerpot, this place has atmosphere to spare ! It’s never been chock-a-block full when I’ve been there, but there’s always plenty of hustle and bustle around the bar.

Saving the best till last, I can report that this pub has easily the most gorgeous barmaids in town !

Oh, and I almost forgot, another place with pointless music playing – though quieter than some .

8/10 – beer choice could be more exciting. – otherwise excellent
