About the Pub

Popular micropub close to the railway station and the Town Hall, and en route from the station to Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium (nearly 2km distant).

The main room incorporates a J-shaped wooden bar counter; the available beers, other drinks and snacks are listed on a blackboard. A cosy smaller room is located through a doorway at the far end. Both rooms have open fireplaces.

No pub car park, but a pay-and-display car park is nearby, and free street parking can be found within easy walking distance.

Pub will open Monday or Tuesday evenings 5pm - 8pm if Burton Albion are playing at home.

Historic Interest

The building is a former coal yard office, probably dating back to the late 19th-century when the nearby Midland Grain Warehouse (now a Travelodge hotel) and the Grain Warehouse Yard were constructed. No information on when the office closed, but the micropub opened as the Middle Earth Tavern in 2015. Renamed the Weighbridge Inn after the lease was bought by the Wentwell Brewery in 2016; lease taken on by the Burton Old Cottage Brewery in 2018, and then by the Muirhouse Brewery in July 2019.
