This is, by a long way, the best pub in Belper. Great beer, real fire, no music- just people enjoying each others company. It's not been sanitised, academised or customised...i doubt it's changed in the last 40 years!!! And it's all the better for it....More

Not my kind of pub, nice fire, but seems quite "clicky" Been in better pubs in the area. Not in the greatest of places to sit outside with the dog.

Popped in with a couple of members of my family mid-afternoon on a late august weekday. One friendly barmaid was plenty as it was fairly quiet . So much choice on beers. The best we had was the Valencia. A traditional local with reasonable prices....More

Well worth a visit if you like your ales and ciders. Good atmosphere and country pub feeling. The pub is split into a lounge and bar with an extra bar outside in the shed... sounds funny but it's worth a visit to the shed.
