About the Pub

A handsome riverside pub with a central bar serving the main bar and separate quiet back bar. The pub is situated opposite Trent Barton's bus garage about 10 minutes walk from the bus station. The Railway Station is also 10 minutes walk across Bass's Recreation Ground. There is a car park to the side of the pub. On a fine day the large outside terrace overlooking the river is very pleasant.

The beer range is very varied with a strong emphasis on new breweries. There is also a good selection of craft keg beer.

Derby CAMRA Pub of the Year 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022. East Midlands Pub of the Year 2019.

The pub has a large curved frontage which once served as a corner between Meadow Road and the road bridge (now removed) over the river which rose up from the side of the pub. The pub once boasted a two-story hotel block which occupied the space now taken up by the car park.
