About the Pub

After several years as a struggling pseudo-nightclub culminating in closure, this erstwhile pub (built for Bass in 1962) has been refurbished, re-opened (November 2014) and revitalised by new owners under its original name. The interior comprises a large, smart, bright and airy, L-shaped room with the bar counter running around the inside corner. There is a mixture of booths at the side (which can be pre-booked), comfy settees in one corner, and high tables with bar stools in the centre. As a sports bar managed by former Burton Albion star Aaron Webster, there is an inevitable football theme, and no fewer than 20 wall-mounted TVs spread around the premises! Discos, with DJ, are held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 8pm. No meals at present, but there are plans to introduce food in 2015. No pub car park, but large public car parks nearby (free after 8pm).
