Will Larter left this review about The Elms

This is a lovely pub and a welcome sight after the traffic-dominated walk from the centre of town. To be fair, there are off-road alternatives once the bridge has been crossed, with footpaths meandering through the woods on the banks of the Trent, though the roar of traffic is never far away. It's relatively peaceful once inside, with two pleasant rooms at the front of the pub, the bar being on the left. I didn't explore further back, but there are other rooms there too, and outside seating areas to front and back. There were numerous hand pumps on the bar (which has an interesting carved and painted decoration which can be seen in my photo). Beers that I saw were Bass, Pedigree, Landlord and Rev James, and I think the other hand pumps simply repeated these. My Bass was a bit underwhelming, but later arrivals were presented with much better beer which seems to have come from changing the barrel (but mine wasn't so substandard as to warrant changing). This was a very pleasant pub which I would visit frequently if it was in my neighbourhood.

Situated the wrong side of the bridge as the town gives way to the suburban countryside. A pretty-looking pub with its Bass signage in fine fettle, and the interior retains a pleasing multi-roomed set-up via a corridor. There’s a small main servery immediately left with a lovely curved wood bar, bay window perch and various bits of breweriana. To the right is a classic lounge room. Another modern and plainer room lies further back which also has a serving area access. Four pumps at the bar, sporting recognised stuff in Pedigree (NBSS 3.5) Bass (3), Waddies 6X and a rugby themed one from Skinners. I enjoyed my half hour here and would be happy to revisit for an idle pint.

Yet another traditional unusual pub in Burton. Has a benched commual bar area with a couple of traditonal parlours off. A nice stroll through the washlands and by the river Trent is rewarded with this real ale lovers gem.
