I confess that I have not always enjoyed Mr Grundy’s beers, but I’m pleased that I came here. It is an appealing pub – spacious and a little quirky, with much memorabilia to admire. Busy with Sunday lunchtime diners, most of whom were arriving by car I noticed.

I stopped here on the way in to the centre of Derby, it was a glorious sunny afternoon and the vast majority of customers appeared to be outside, and drinking lager.
