Nice English pub with an unusual attention for the menu. I have been here 3 times and always found good dishes and food.

Had a day off work so my wife and I decided to go out for lunch. Great selection of beers to choose from. Food menu offers something different from the usual "pub grub". The meals we chose were obviously freshly prepared, very well cooked and...More

I called in today with a friend before a football match at Pride Park. The pub is fairly small and consists of a number of small rooms. It was busy when we arrived and it was obvious that we would struggle to find a table...More

£12.95 for a Sunday roast. You're expecting the best at those sort of prices. You won't get it here. Dried up chewy beef I could have soled my shoes with. Vegetables almost raw. Sent it right back. No excuse at all. My two-year old granddaughter...More

Definitely a pub to visit for good beer and food. Great British style menu with regular favourites such as burgers, fish and chips and pork pies. Always good value and well presented.

Hi. Parking is by way of meters immediately outside but free after 6 pm. There is also free parking in the nearby area but you need to drive around a little to find some. I have never had a problem with parking in this part... More
