Visited yesterday around lunch time. Pretty quiet with what I assume were a couple of locals propping up the bar. Four hand pulls for cask ale, all of which were on, and at the time of my visit offering Farmers Steel Cow, Thornbridge Lord Maples, TT Landlord and Thornbridge Jaipur. A half of the Lord Maples set me back £2 exactly. This was a fairly pleasant bitter and appeared to be in good condition. In addition to the cask beers there was a fairly mainstream keg selection, the most interesting of which was Camden Pale Ale. Lager and cider dominated the keg line-up, but there was also a solitary John Smiths tap for those who prefer their pint of bitter to be cold and bland. The blokes at the bar appeared to have shunned this in favour of the Carling.

There is a small room hosting the bar, with just a couple of tables and banquette seating, supplemented by five stools at the bar. There are further rooms to the right and the rear, again with tables and at least one of those rooms appeared to be designated for dining. The bar felt fairly cosy with traditional country pub decor including copper kettles, an old range fireplace, a gun hanging above the bar, and horse and deer themed cushions on the modern banquette seating.

Music was playing at a sensible level. Accommodation is available and there is a beer garden with tables to the front - not sure if there was anything further to the rear.

A word of warning - if you are a shy gentleman, you may find the giant skylight above the urinals somewhat intimidating!

Glad to have tried this pub and if I find myself back in Tideswell I would definitely consider a return visit.

Traditional locals pub on the way into town from Tideswell Dale.

Only place that has the football on - Sky - but not BT Sports.

Large two roomed - big range in the bar - other tables set up for dining.

Had my first Stancill brewery beer - a Stainless. Would find it a few times by the end of the week.

Like all the pubs in Tideswell, there was music playing in a totally empty pub when I was here one afternoon. Whereas the other two were unbearably loud, this one was just about OK. Good beer, too: Tetley's and Marston's Burton, plus one from Thornbridge. Interesting interior, with kitchen range in the bar parlour (no chimney above, so obviously a recent acquisition) and racing print in the lounge. On a previous visit this appeared to be the Sunday afternoon haunt of local bored twenty-somethings. Perhaps that's who the music was for...
