Visited mid evening. After conversation at The Star in Bath on Saturday a chance to taste Bass and Pedigree head to head. They do have individual clearly defined characteristics after all!

Lunch time visit, this is probably my favourite place in Derby to relax with a pint. A very well run pub.

Very busy on a Friday evening. As usual the Bass was dispensed from a large stainless steel jug covered (when idle) by a red checkered cloth.

A traditional style of house. One large bar with large pool table to one side. In the Railway Station district of the City. 4 handpumps on the bar counter. Famous for its Bass from the jug. Long standing licensee David Lalor ruled here until he left in December 2013. At January 2014 the pub is boarded up with a heavy security door and metal shuttering surround. After a period of closure the pub re-opened.

We have visited this pub 15 times, seen 4 different beers and tried 2 of them.
