About the Pub

Claimed to be Derby's oldest pub and certainly looks the part with a number of small rooms, including a traditional snug which has fires in winter and conversation all year round. Well patronised by all sorts of people, who enjoy the relaxed and friendly atmosphere, perhaps a bar meal, or even a visit to the reputedly haunted cellars. There is live music from Wednesdays to Saturdays, and in the warmer months in Sunday afternoons. There are quizzes on Tuesdays and Sundays. There is a large outside drinking area. On Derby's real ale drinking circuit and with it's own beer festival.

Historic Interest

The pub is of considerable historic interest, dating back to the 16th century, but much of it changed in an inter-war restoration. The latter created much of the considerable character of the pub today, which attracts visitors from far and wide.
