About the Pub

Friendly, Victorian, two-roomed local, situated towards the northern edge of the town, which had changed little since the 1950s until the public bar was extended in 2013/14. Very much a community pub, it offers a step back in time to a more relaxed pace of life; except on match days when it is popular with football supporters! The pub is en route between the railway station and Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium, the latter being a mere 800m distant.

While regular food is limited to fresh filled cobs, lunchtime meals are available on Sundays (limited choice of traditional roasts) and evening meals on Wednesdays (limited choice; type varies). Hot snacks (eg. pasties and sausage rolls) are offered on match days.

Quiz Night Tuesday.

Pub now accepts card payments with limited cash back to £30.

Historic Interest

The building is thought to date back to the mid-1800s, but it may not have been a pub initially. There are stories of it once being a drovers’ pub, with livestock pens sited on the opposite side of the road. It was an Evershed’s house until the merger with Marston’s in 1905. Marston’s sold the pub to Piccadilly Licensed Properties in 2007 (but it was operated by a subsidiary of Scottish & Newcastle). Bought by Admiral Taverns in 2010.
