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.

A little gem. A brilliant selection of craft beers in a setting that I can only describe as a " front room". Don't worry when you get in looking for the bar... it's very continental with table service. The selection of scotch eggs are worth...More

Such a good place to go and try out some new beers and ciders. Really friendly and social and great service. Wines are really nice too which is sometimes overlooked in a ‘beer’ place. Scrummy scotch eggs and pork pies. Highly recommended

A good idea Melbourne needed this, one can tell because it was full to bursting. Waitress service is a revelation I really enjoy going there.

Despite its name, this is a cash only establishment, no music , no juke box , no pool table , no sticky carpet , no credit , no one armed bandit. Conversation is optional, but encouraged. In actual fact it doesn’t even have a bar!...More
