Will Larter left this review about The Tupton Tap

The refurbishment here has been nicely done, though the interior of this pub is a little complicated, especially for such a plain, four-square building. The bar has an impressive eight hand pumps (see photo), with half of the beers being from Ashover Brewery. I was just pondering the likelihood of keeping that many beers in top condition in an out-of-the-way place like this, when a previous customer came back into the pub from the beer garden, saying his beer was not right. It was instantly changed and the pump clip turned around, but I couldn't help wondering how much of the barrel would now have to be thrown away. (I picked up a rumour later in the year that all is not well with this brewery, and I hope that this pub venture is not proving to be more of a hindrance than a help.)

Alan Winfield left this review about The Royal Oak Inn

The Royal Oak is a stand alone pub that is situated next to a busy traffic island.
Once inside there was an L shaped room to the front with an island bar,this room was carpeted and had comfy bench seating and chairs,there was a TV to the right showing music videos,there was a games room to the rear which had a pool table in it.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of John Smiths cask which was a decent drink but slightly too warm,the other beer was Bombardier.
The pub was empty on my Saturday afternoon vist but there were a few people in the beer Garden.
