Will Larter left this review about The Woodlands Hotel

This has to be one of the smartest estate pubs I've ever been to. It's part of the Stonegate chain and seems to have had a recent refurbishment - it's very smart, light and airy, with modern furniture all in good condition. The urinals have splash boards! There's a public bar to the left on entering, but the background music was a bit loud for me here so I went through to the lounge/dining room to the right, which was smaller and quieter.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a reasonable offering of real ales and cider (see photos), with my half of Doom Bar, which was in good condition, being only £1.22 after applying the Camra members discount. This is quite a pleasant place to spend a few minutes over a half, and for those who live in this suburb of Derby it would be a good place to spend a session.
