Will Larter left this review about The Derby Inn

The Derby Inn is situated in a terrace on the main road towards Derby, though with a pub sign that seems to want top claim a link to the Epsom horse race of the same name. There are two fairly narrow rooms either side of the central bar, and a sort of snug to the rear. Beers available at the time of my visit were Abbot, Bass, Timothy Taylor Boltmaker and a 9% imperial stout (brewed locally at the Museum Brewing Company) that I gave a swerve to on this occasion. If we'd won the game just up the road it might have been another matter.

Lengthy walk out of town but worth it. Choice of bar or lounge on entry - I went right into the bar. You can tell from the noticeboard how seriously they take their beer....

Choice of Bass or TT Boltmaker. Bass in perfect condition.

Lovely place.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Derby Inn

First of all, Wentwell Brewery has ceased trading, so no Wentwell beers available here now. Nevertheless they did have a choice of four well kept ales on handpump and two ciders. The pub consists of two rooms either side of a central bar, accessible either side of the front entrance. The pub is traditional in style and is quite basic in décor, with cream painted walls and green leatherette bench seating.
The manager and manageress were friendly and welcoming and very helpful with directions around town. The wood burning stove in the lounge side was welcoming on such a cold day. I also had a good sized cob, freshly prepared, which went hand in hand with a good pint of Timothy Taylor Boltmaker. Other beers on were Titanic Plum Porter, Theakston Old Peculiar , Wychwood and Harvest Pale.
