Aqualung . left this review about Jorrocks

I noticed passing this place on my way out that it was alleged to date from the mid sixteen hundreds and was haunted. It was open when I returned so I gave it a go. I don't know about ghosts but some of the punters could easily be mistaken for zombies. The interior of this split level, long and narrow room is more twentieth than seventeenth century. I counted four TV screens showing horse racing and I was alarmed to spot an Idiot Booth at the lower right. They were playing a soundtrack of old Pop / Soul rubbish.
The six hand pumps had five unused and St Austell Tribute (£3.50) which to be fair wasn't too bad.
I don't know if they go for rhyming slang in Derby but if they do there is a rhyming word for this place that sums up my impression of it.

Two cask ales were on. A longish thinish bar. Does its job I suppose.

This pub lost the Mr a few years ago and used to be an Ansells tied house in the 80s.
Once inside the pub still has the same layout with a long narrow room and the bar is on the right,there were a couple of real ales on the bar we had a drink of Pedigree and tasted slightly off the other beer was London Pride.
There were a few other people in here on a dinnertime visit who looked a bit dodgy.
