This pub failed our “bad pubs test” ! In fact the main thing that was wrong with was that it was completely empty ! (7pm on Tuesday). There was also only one real ale available, though there were a couple of other handpumps that had run out, and the one left was a very nice pint (well half) of Adnams Ghost Ship. This is the one pub on our crawl that I might actually go back into – though I hear it does tend to attract football crowds so will need to be careful with timing.

stopped in here as part of the pub crawl beofre derby v chelsea.

only got a quick half and kept my mouth shut as only when i igot inside did i realise pretty much every one in there was a stone island wearing derby casual.

very partisan crowd on match days and not a scarfer in sight. avoid if your from out of town.

I visited this pub at the weekend as I had heard of its peculiar heritage and thought a spooky visit to Derby was definitely on the cards! This establishment is said to be home to a poltergeist and the remains of a damaged female skull reside behind the bar (an ancient skull discovered in the cellar no less!)

Aside from these little eccentricities and the beautiful frontage this pub was rather a let down. It looks like a quaint 'proper' pub, inviting and suggestive of a cosy pint....this couldn't be further from the truth alas.

The inside is very modernised and there is no doubt that this is a football pub. There is also a Jaegermeister machine behind the bar offering a range of concoctions and shot containing the stuff....above which resides the skull!!!!

Not bad for a curious gander and a quick pint but certainly not one to visit again I don't think!

One of the so-called haunted pubs of Derby....oh really. Good boozer at weekends.

Of the four city centre pubs we visited during our weekend visit, for me this was the most dissapointing.
It has the outward look of a good old fashioned english pub, but on the inside is just another football-focussed tap room with basic furniture and blaring sports tvs.
***
No food.
There were 2 or 3 cask beers available. we had the youngs special, which was okay but a bit over-priced at 2.70/pint.
***
verdict:
"Admire the exterior and move on". couldn't agree more!
a disappointed 3 from me. mostly for the beer.
