Quinno _ left this review about The Roebuck Inn

A timewarp locals pub that looks 1976 both outside and in. Connoisseurs will find much to admire in the mostly untouched 70s refit, replete with velveteen banquette seating with inbuilt heaters, varnished tongue and groove ceiling, striped curtains and old skool ales from Theakston, Greene King, Bass, Marston and what I assumed to be a recreation of Ind Coop Burton ale which whilst in good nick (NBSS 3.5) was a ghastly buttery thing not fit to lick the originals boots. Friendly landlady. Plenty of good pubs in Burton, this one doesn’t demand top billing but it's good crawl fodder. 6.5

Another classic looking pub - nothing remarkable but friendly welcome and typical pub interior.

Bass in fine condition.

I remember coming here back in the 1990s when it was a carpeted Ind Coope house with a pet parrot in the bar rather than the more basic style ale house it is now. It's long and narrow with a wooden floor, a dart board at one end and TVs on that nobody seemed to be watching.
As noted below the beer choice is rather mainstream with the only items of interest for me being Gates Burton Ale and Peakstones Rock Black Hole. One of the eight hand pumps was unused and one had a cider. I went for the Black Hole beer which was in good nick.
I thought the unwatched TVs and mainstream beers let this place down but it's worth a look.
