Overview
More
The micropub concept is all about keeping things small and keeping it simple! Our aim is to provide a continuously changing range of at least three real ales at all times. Depending on the time of year, the beers will range from Indian Pale Ales (IPAs), bitters, golden ale, browns, milds, porters and stouts. We also stock draft cider from traditional cider makers As we are a 'free house', we are not tied to any one brewer or supplier - so we aim to use local microbreweries in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and beyond... In addition to our cask real ales and cider, we supply a small range of high quality wines, some bottled fruit beers and traditional soft drinks. Please see our Facebook page and Twitter feed for information on our current range of real ales.

We enjoyed a selection of beers and ciders, most of which we hadn't seen before. Our particular favourites were the Primordial Ooze ale and the rhubarb cider. Very interesting micropuncture.

Our regular Saturday evening place, and it’s superb. Excellent choice of beer and ciders, with some wines as well. Friendly staff, and it’s a great place to start conversations with other customers. Highly recommended.

We love this little micro pub which never fails to satisfy our thirst for good beer new and old (as well as other drinks and some snack foods). It is a credit to the owners. Well done
