Early evening and 'one for the road' before catching the 19:01 train to St Pancras. No hot food available again so we opted for a generous sized pork pie each. Same beers on offer as yesterday thus only listed what I had.

Mid afternoon very quiet 3 others in but soon joined by more. A fellow drinker recommended the Triple Hop as a lighter beer which I prefer. May try this on my way back should I have (or make) more time.

Evening. Noted the rather unusual dual nozzle handpumps on 10 of the 16 pumps. I suppose it offers the infamous northern or southern head option!

The pub is found in Derby, Derbyshire, DE1 2RU.

Lovely pub that was part of the original Midland Railway village. Flat iron building 5 minutes walk from Derby railway station. Multiple rooms. Real red leather seats. Brewery at rear with lots of railway and pub memorabilia on walls. Home of the Brunswick Brewery which is managed separately from the pub. A long standing licensee here retired in early 2013. Real ale price discount for card carrying CAMRA members. 16 handpumps in total in banks of 6, 5 & 5. The two banks of 5 have (at Spring 2014) been fitted with dual outlet nozzles for each pump - 1 with a swan's neck and sparkler and the other with a straight tap with a screw fitting for an optional sparkler. The units were manufactured by CFBS (Colin Farrar Brewery Services of Keighley). There are also 3 handpumps in the upstairs function room.

We have visited this pub 36 times, seen 139 different beers and tried 32 of them.
