Lincoln Green town centre local close to the well-hidden railway station.

It's a single room pub with a few nooks and crannies. The bar is on the right-hand side as you enter. I think they were serving food, but most people seemed to be there for the beer.

4 Lincoln Green beers appear regularly - Archer, Hood, Marion & Tuck. A 5th beer from Lincoln Green - Sherwood Foresters went off whilst we were there, whilst they also had Great Newsome Frothingham Best, Fuller's London Pride & St Austell Proper Job. Craft beers included Beatniks Republic Surf Etiquette, Burnt Mill Beyond the Firs & Green Path, Tiny Rebel Club Tropicana, Brixton Cold Harbour & Beavertown Neck Oil.

Unfortunately, they appear to have stopped serving real cider.

One feature of note were the mirrors in the gents toilets, etched with an old British Rail logo. Maybe originals, but probably not.

Dogs are welcomed, but a few seemed to be getting a bit boisterous and creating a bit of a racket!

My first visit to Belper for more than three years, so was unaware that the Railway was no longer the rather rough-looking shopping street pub that it had appeared to be previously. The eight hand pump line up includes six from Lincoln Green, of which I went for Tuck, a 4.7% porter which was in good nick. The pub is looking smart both inside and out, and seems to be attracting real ale drinkers, as although it wasn't busy (between 12:30 and 1pm), there were beers being poured during my visit which is not always the case where real ale has been introduced to a pub that might not have had a reputation for it before. I'm planning another trip to Belper soon, as it's looking like a really good beer town for its size.

This pub has gone through a complete turnaround now that Lincoln Green Brewery have taken it over. Apart from the refurbished interior a major effort has also taken place to regenerate the large rear patio garden area, which was completely full of customers on our return to the train station later on in the evening. Eight handpumps on our visit, plus a choice of six craft keg. I went for the Adnam's Ghost Ship and Lincoln Green Marion, both were in top condition.
