The pub was closed and will close permanently today being sold off at auction after 500 yeas as a pub. so sad to see. all makes me wonder if I should have drank in here instead of going to spoons but too late to worry.

Derventio - Cleopatra5.00GoodInteresting sweet fruity malt reminded me of pear and rosewater maybe though it apparently contains apricot not a session beer unless your very dedicated

All the talk was of the Welland Valley Beer festival 11 pubs free buses between the villages they put a minibus on from the pub and a great time had by all it seems. Looking forward to trying the guest ale the landlord ordered while there.
