Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Waterside Inn

Recently re-named and thoroughly refurbished pub beside the River Derwent. Semi-modern furniture and decor throughout the two-part bar area. Also has an external seating patio for the better weather. Landlord, Pedigree (£1.55, half) and Purity Mad Goose available from three of four handpumps. Very busy on a Friday night, with a good community feel, so it looks like this one is on the way back up.

Mark Davey left this review about The Bridge Inn

I have just revisited the Bridge after 5 years away from Derby. Recently taken over by a manager with a passion for real ale, the pub is on the up. Still primarily food orientated, the bar now sports several pumps with UBU Mad Goose, Timothy Taylors Bolt Maker, Pedigree and Bass. Some unusual lagers from Europe also on sale and according to the barman outselling Carling, which can't be a bad thing. Well worth making the walk from the city center, especially on a nice warm evening to sit by the river.

Will Larter left this review about The Bridge Inn

Situated beside St Mary's Bridge, which features one of only six surviving bridge chapels in England, so there are great views of both bridge and river from the garden, which is packed with bench tables and must get absolutely rammed when the weather is fine. No danger of overcrowding today, when the main problem was keeping camera and notebook dry.

Inside, it's a complicated building of many rooms and levels, probably the result of combing two buildings linked cornerwise. The large bar has two banks of four hand pumps with what most real ale aficionados would describe as an unadventurous offering: Wells Bombardier, Caledonian Deuchars and Wychwood Hobgoblin, the fourth pump being vacant. I had the Bombardier, which was in pretty good condition.

The pub is clearly food oriented, with dining chairs and tables everywhere and nothing that you could really describe as an area for drinkers. The recent refurbishment gives what seems to me a soulless feel to what should be an interesting building: modern wood everywhere, including the ceiling (though to be fair the floor looks like it's been here a good few years), Venetian blinds at the windows, lots of off-white paint, seemingly dozens of small framed mirrors (to make up for the gloom caused by the blinds), and scores of those annoying high-backed dining chairs in leather or fabric upholstery. Perhaps the designers thought Derby had too many "olde worlde" pubs and wanted to give a different feel to this place, in which they have certainly succeeded, though with the result that it now feels cold and unlived in.
