still a good multi roomed pub, even the baneful influence of clueless Marstons can’t change that. lively and full of atmosphere despite its slightly off beaten track location. I cringe at the marketing bollocks on the new signage declaring it a ‘ale house and kitchen’. You’re a pub, why not be proud of that?

Tucked away behind the Castle Gardens just beyond the city walls, The Minster Inn is a traditional boozer which, mercifully, hasn't been knocked around inside and retains it's original, small, multi-roomed format with many original features including a real fire in the bar.
The pub itself is welcoming as are the staff and regulars who seem reasonably used to the occasional visitor straying from the city centre.
The pizza offer was very popular on our Saturday lunchtime visit and we were very happy with ours.
Beers on were Rudgate Brew No 11, Thornbridge Tapit, Ashover The Fabrick, Banks Sunbeam and Ringwood Razorback. A decent selection without Marstons dominating too heavily and everything that I tried was in excellent condition.
A delightful boozer which is well worth a visit for both the pizza and the beer.

Splendid pub tucked away in a side street by the city walls, retaining the old multi-room interior which has been beautifully restored with traditional furnishings and includes real fires. A good selection of beers is offered from the wider Marston's family (Cask Marque listing). Food is restricted to pizza and not always available, but it sounded good and is also available for takeaway, as is the beer. There is also a nice little courtyard garden at the rear.
