A cracking little pub. Two roomed with the servery in the front room. On the big side for a micro as the rear room is slightly larger than the front. Loads of pump clips displayed along the walls and ceilings tell you that this is going to be a decent pub. 5 handpulls with beers I hadn't tried before, which like all the pubs I went into in Long Eaton and here I forgot to note. Anyway its a must visit place if in Ilkeston.

A fine pub with one room as you come in and another tucked away round the back. Five or six hand pumps including Jaipur which was our choice. Quite full but one to return to if back in the rea.

A very popular Micro pub that soon starts to fill, as soon as it opens especially at weekends.
The owner and the regular locals made us very welcome on our visit. Five ales on handpump and a beer served from the cask in the cellar on our visit. We went for the Fell Brewery Yolo, which was a fine contender for Beer of the Week. If you're quite partial to the odd pork pie and Pork Scratching's served in pots by the pint, then this is the place to be. You can also buy your free range eggs, brought in daily. If the front gets too busy, there's plenty of extra room around the back.

The Burnt Pig is Ilkestons latest pub to open,it is a micro pub that is just off the busy south street.
Once inside there is a small square shaped room with the bar on the right side,there is a narrow bench seat and two small tables a stools for seating,the floor looks like wood laminate,there is a separate room to the rear which is the same size as the front room,this room has anarrow bench seat and a some normal tables and chairs,there is an open fire which was socked with wood for colder days.
There are five real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Blue Monkey Infinity which was a very well kept drink,the other beers were Marpool Otters Pocket,Springhead The Leveller,Oakham Scarlet Macaw and Totally Brewed Voodoo Stout.
There are also a few real Ciders and a few single malt whiskies,crisps and pork scratching are also available.
The front room was very busy with a good mix of drinkers.
I quite liked this micro pub and will no doubt visit it again.
