About the Pub

This traditional village pub dates back to the early 19th-century when known as the Lord Rodney, but was substantially rebuilt in 1959, and later extended and refurbished in 1998 to provide an open-plan L-shaped drinking area, retaining the original oak beams in the former snug. A small raised area behind the bar is served through a hatch.

Current and imminent guest beers, usually from SIBA members, are listed on a board above one end of the bar. Quiz night Sunday; cheese tasting on first Monday of month.

Several clubs and groups meet here: a Derby County supporters group, a Diving Club, Hartshorne Bellringers, Hartshorne Cricket Club (whose ground is behind the pub), a Ladies Club, Rodney Ramblers walking group.

Historic Interest

Existed in 1827 as the Lord Rodney, but name appears to have changed soon afterwards to the Admiral Rodney Inn. Bought by Salts Brewery in 1891, but it became a Bass pub when the latter took over Salts in 1927; around this time it is believed to have been called the Rodney Inn. Bought by Enterprise Inns in 1991 and the name subsequently reverted to the Admiral Rodney Inn. A pub called the New Inn was once located on the site of the car park to the west, from the 1880s until it was demolished in 1962.
