Will Larter left this review about The Neptune Inn

A very welcome transformation after my attempted visit five years ago (see below) when no real ale was served here. The new owner envisaged that the pub's proximity to the Chesterfield Arms would be mutually beneficial, and he told me that he has only ever had to throw one beer away in the two years he has been open (and that was an understated mild). He gets through three barrels of both Betty's Blonde and Jaipur every week, and about a barrel each of the other six.

There are also numerous keg offerings, and four ciders which are advertised on fonts but actually drawn from the cellar. To be honest, the beer selection didn't really float my boat, as I don't like milk stouts and wasn't in the mood for a chocolate porter, which left a choice between one of several very pale beers (including Thornbridge Melba) or Acorn Barnsley Bitter. I plumped for the latter, but was again unlucky in that it wasn't in top condition. I wouldn't want to put anyone off, though. As others have said, this makes a good double-header with the Chesterfield Arms two minutes' walk away and is easily reached by a short stroll or brief bus ride from the town centre.

This obviously used to be a small backstreet locals pub. It's now been turned into something of a destination pub styling itself as a "Beer Emporium". It's very close to the Chesterfield Arms and between them they serve around 16 different cask ales. The bar is very close to the door as you enter and I can see this being a problem at busy times. The main drinking areas are either side of the entrance. I had a pint of Barlow Betty's Blonde which was only OK and a half of Spire Dark Side which was excellent. A friendly barmaid added to the attractions. We'll definitely be coming here again.

This is a back street boozer (Thwaites according to previous review) that is now an Ale House presumably free of any tie. There are some mosaic tiles as you enter then wooden floored areas either side.
The bar has eight hand pumps which had Thornbridge Peverel, Sandway Hop Sepia, Pig & Porter Slow Black Stout, Abbeydale Absolution, Liverpool Organic Pale, Ashover Hummy, Peak Ales Chatsworth Gold and Spire Chesterfield Butt. Ciders are also on offer. I went for the Sandway Hop Sepia (£3.10) which was cold and not entirely clear. I would give this one another go especially as it's so close to the Chesterfield Arms.
