The Lady Chatterley, Eastwood

As the previous review states, not much of a drinking area. This spoons is geared towards diners with a large area at the rear. Great selection on ales including a Locale which is brewed especially for the pub called Mellors. This is a pale ale by Lincoln Green i think. All beers cheap as you would expect and well kept. The place still looks new but how long will this last?

Sun Inn, Eastwood

standard town centre pub, nothing special. friendly enough but the beer range is limited to Abbot and IPA. Abbott wasn't on when i popped in so had an IPA for £2.50.

The Three Horseshoes, Morley

Agree with the previous poster, visited early November on a saturday night. Open fires were going, decent pub food followed by a few pints. Pedigree was expensive at £3.50 however, the guest ales were slightly cheaper at £3.20. Both well kept as this is a cask marque pub

Scruffy Murphys, Blackpool

not a bad pub, full of people watching a scottish football match so didn't hang around long. Standard prices for a pint of Carling, didn't fancy the Old Speckled Hen in this pub

Albert and The Lion, Blackpool

Visited with 2 mates Saturday 27/9/14. Plenty of ales on offer. Service not great as Blackpool at home to Norwich so was really busy. Toliets were surprisingly clean though. Had a Farmhouse breakfast Sunday morning which was decent and the service was notably better when it was quieter

The Millers Barn, Cinderhill

place has recently been re branded as Beefeater. Bit of a re vamp and cleaned up however, it's still a bland chain pub, nothing special. Visited 26/9/14 Friday, 2 ales on offer Black Sheep Ale and Pedigree. Decent enough pint around the £2.90 mark but ANY pub that can change £3.15 for a pint of Boddingtons and £3 for a coke deserve closing down. Absolute rip off and the clientele hasn't really changed

Market Hotel, Heanor

visited last night with a mate. Pint of Carling and Hardy and Hanson Cool £4.70. Also enjoyed a couple of Copper Dragon beers at only £2.30 a pint, both well kept. Went for the limited edition one which was a pale ale, other was Copper Dragon best bitter. Jukebox does now have a good range of music

The Queens Head, Heanor

Went in Friday evening with a mate. Had a pint of well kept Scarlett Macaw from Oakham Ales. 4 handpumps on plus a couple of ciders. Fairly quiet but it was 5pm.

The Spring Cottage Inn, Ilkeston

Decent pub, spacious and friendly enough. 2 pints of Mcewans lager only £4.10. Has sky sports as well. Couple of ales on the handpumps. Traditional place with plenty of seating and child friendly also

26 Aug 2014 13:37

Spanish Bar, Ilkeston

popped in Friday early evening, only went for a carling which was cheap however, good selection of ales on. Good atmosphere and was quite busy with a range of ages. Will go back to sample an ale.

26 Aug 2014 13:36

Observatory, Ilkeston

Went Friday 22/8/14 with a mate, not very busy, great range of ales about 10 handpumps on .Went for an Oakham ales Citra which was in good condition, sat upstairs in the outside area. Was served quickly and took £3 from tarrant on the quiz machine

26 Aug 2014 13:34

Sir John Warren, Ilkeston

Visited friday night with a mate, busy with a younger crowd. Didn't fancy an ale from here so stuck with Carling which was cheap enough. Big place, toilets could do with a refurb. Does have the advantage of a large back for smokers

26 Aug 2014 13:32

Moon & Sixpence, Ilkeston

Now known as the Kings Head. Went in Friday night, pub quite busy with a disco but poor range of ale only having Doom Bar and Harvest Pale. Went for the latter which was cheap enough and a nice pint. Also does food

26 Aug 2014 13:30

The Stag, Kimberley

As per the previous posters. Fantastic pub with extremely well kept ales. Visited Saturday and will be back again, traditional pub with around 6 handpumps and some old pub games. 2 rooms with a small area at the back. Friendly landlady

26 Aug 2014 09:42

Cricketers Rest, Kimberley

2 of us visited saturday, small pub near the old Kimberley Brewery. Old decor but friendly enough and was quiet of our visit mid afternoon. 2 pints ordered a Kimberley Bitter and the house ale, Greene King IPA Gold was off and no other choice except for Lager. Decent enough pint but at over £6 their are better options in Kimberley like The Stagg. This pub does have a darts board and Sky Sports though

26 Aug 2014 09:38

The Falcon Inn, Nottingham

Cracking former Shipstones pub, now run by Lincoln Green as said below. Had 2 well kept pints of Hood bitter back in March here, friend who is a lager drinker also had the Hood bitter and enjoyed it. Traditional friendly pub which also has the old Shipstones sign hanging in the little room to your right. Don't try the Torkard Tipple tho, barman gave us a sample - it tastes of coffee unless that's your thing

The George and Dragon Hotel, Chester

Stayed here for one night in April with 2 mates out on the ale all day. Cracking family room for the price - clean and well presented room and pub, staff were also friendly and efficient.

Breakfast was decent and included in the b&b price, cereals, juices and a full english is just what was needed after the previous days ale. We had a beer and burger offer the previous day which was cheap and cheerful but good value.

The beer was well kept i had a pint of Greene King IPA and a St Austell Proper Job, both well kept and well below the £3 mark. Both mates drank lager but had no complaints. Had some sort of karaoke on the Thursday evening however, we didn't partake.

Would definately stop here again

The Boot Inn, Chester

visited on a Thursday night with 2 mates in April. Decent pub with a decent pint of OBB. 2 mates had lager with no complaints. fairly busy compared with some of the places we visited

6 Aug 2014 13:50

The Liverpool Arms, Chester

visited with 2 mate in April, gay pub which was 5 minutes walk from where we were staying. No real ale on but had a decent jukebox.

Red Lion, Heanor

Milestone ales were only £1.90 also

Red Lion, Heanor

Popped in saturday just gone, although this place is a dive the quality of beer and the service is better than most. 2 Milestone ales on and an ale from some place in Barnsley, can't remember what the brewery was but they were all decent. Also witnessed a comical moment where some elderly guy tried to take a walking stick that wasn't his - luckily it didn't turn too nasty.

Three Horseshoes, Whitwick

I agree with the previous poster in that i could stay here for a few. Visited on a Friday evening in Feb however, the pub only had about 5 people in, all over 60. Decent pint of Pedigree mind. Don't really mind about the outside toilets

30 Jul 2014 15:56

Man Within Compass, Whitwick

visitied this pub on a cold friday evening in February with a friend who lives local. Only ales on were Pedigree and Doom Bar. Was busy and struggled getting served as the rugby was on. Although the Doom Bar was decent and the pub was clean, it was full of people who clearly thought a lot of themselves. Wasn't somewhere i would stay for more than one pint

30 Jul 2014 15:53

The Cross Keys Inn, Chester

clean old school pub in a nice setting witha friendly barman. Tried a guest ale which was decent rather than the Joules beer (Oakham ales Citra). Was quiet for a Thursday afternoon

11 Jul 2014 14:57

The Albion Inn, Chester

Agree with NottsHammer. Went to this pub in April, Harvest Pale was decent however, noticing the signage on the way out stating no groups aloud forces me to give a low score. What's wrong with having groups come in? If they get rowdy you can ask them to leave. It also reminded me of a scene from waiting for god

11 Jul 2014 14:31

The Lighthouse Inn, Talacre

No real ales, had to go for a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale. Tired decor but does have a childrens outdoor play area and is friendly enough

2 Jul 2014 15:34

Sussex, Rhyl

Better than expected, 5 handpumps on last week. I chose Banks Lions Roar and Brains Summer Ale i think it was called.

Both kept well and only £2.10 a pint, other ales on included Bishops Finger, Abbott and something else.

Ate in here as well, standard spoons food, service was good and served quickly, place is a bit tired and could do with a refurb

2 Jul 2014 15:30

Beer Shack, Hucknall

Hucknall has been crying out for a place that does decent real ales for a while, good selection constantly rotated. Only downside are the irregular opening hours but it's the same with other micropubs

13 Jun 2014 10:11

The Standing Order, Derby

Best spoons i have been in, decent building, clean with a good selection of ales. Had some food yesterday also which came out fast and was nice. Service was good for a sunday lunch

28 Apr 2014 14:57

Revolution, Derby

poncy posh lookibg place, most expensive pint and a half of san miguel iv ever had at £6.85. very quiet on a thursday early evening

28 Apr 2014 14:55

The Exeter Arms, Derby

popped in with the mrs yesterday, decent pint of pedigree here. Nice place but when busy you wouldn't be able to breathe

28 Apr 2014 14:48

The Blessington Carriage, Derby

visited here with 2 mates last thursday, slightly worse for wear so can't comment too much on the cleanliness although the atmosphere seemed decent even though the pub was quiet. One of my mates did however stumble at the bar and end up on the floor - nobody batted an eyelid which probably tells you about the clientele that frequent this place!

28 Apr 2014 14:46

The Brewery Tap, Derby

visited this pub last thurs with 2 mates, decent atmosphere and friendly enough. Unfortunately had a pint of lager, will drop in to sample an ale soon

The Burton Bridge Inn, Burton-Upon-Trent

another pub in Burton closed around 3.30 on a Thursday afternoon

28 Apr 2014 10:55

Lord Burton, Burton-Upon-Trent

Not a bad spoons, quick service and a decent smoking area out back backing out onto the park. Dark inside without much natural light but this is apparent in most spoons. Didn't get chance to sample a real ale as was out all day so made use with a beer (Carling) and burger

28 Apr 2014 10:53

The Coopers Tavern, Burton-Upon-Trent

decent pint of Joules pale ale in a traditional pub, nice little sun trap in the outside smoking area.

28 Apr 2014 10:33

Devonshire Arms, Burton-Upon-Trent

This pub was closed @3.30 on a Thursday afternoon. An absolute travesty in this day and age. Had heard it was a decent pub with a good pint so was slightly disapointed

28 Apr 2014 10:30

Derby Inn, Burton-Upon-Trent

stumbled across this pub with a mate as we was desperate for the loo. Decent old school traditional pub, TT Landlord @ £3 per pint. Outside toilets though which coud do with an upgrade!

28 Apr 2014 09:59

The Old Royal Oak, Knaresborough

stayed in the rooms at the back of this pub November 2012, had a few theakstons old peculiar's that day. Well kept, traditional pub. Locals seemed friendly enough. Not very busy for a saturday evening mind.

16 Apr 2014 13:39

Little Acorn, Ilkeston

not been in for a while, had a succesion of landlord changes, some looked after the ales better than others. Beers from the Alcazaar range which were fairly cheap. Pool table and a quiz/card night on a wednesday. Not bad for a local boozer

16 Apr 2014 13:35

The Dewdrop Inn, Ilkeston

as the previous poster mentions, quality pub with open fire in the back room, a good range of well kept ales with plenty of bar snacks and a pool table. Always enjoy the Bishops Farewell and Blue Monkey ales in here.

bulldozed, now a care home

16 Apr 2014 13:29

Bridge Inn, Ilkeston

went in saturday 12/4/14. welcoming after a long walk down the canal. opted for a pint of Hardy and Hanson Dark and a pint of Hardy and Hanson Cool although they had Ruddles @ £1.95 a pint. Well kept beers and extremely cheap around the £2.40 mark.
Will visit again

16 Apr 2014 13:26

Great Northern, Langley Mill

renovated recently, smart pub although it's lost the traditional feel. Haven't tried the food but the ales are decent with a few on, nice position next to the canal for a few beers when the weather is decent.

Inn the Middle, Langley Mill

2 handpumps on, usually a guest ale and there own beer. clean and tidy with a nice decked area with heaters for the smokers. Bit soulless and doesn't look to be child friendly?

The Horse and Jockey, Langley Mill

pub closed, turning into a co-op

15 Apr 2014 15:05

11 Apr 2014 15:13

11 Apr 2014 12:14

Market Hotel, Heanor

standard town centre pub, cheap well kept ale around £2.30 a pint from the Greene King range. Ok to pop for a couple mid week or early on, gets full of rowdy teens on a friday/saturday night

11 Apr 2014 12:08

The Queens Head, Heanor

smart, clean pub with a good selection of ales, ciders and wine. Not the cheapest but a nice enough pub to relax in. Has an open fire indoors for the winter months and also an outside fire in the smoking area
