Will Larter left this review about Jolly Potters

A back street local on the edge of the town centre with three small rooms in a continuous space. Classic pub fittings include leather bench seats and scrubbed pine tables. Service was friendly and the beer was in very good condition, with a choice of Sharps Doom bar, Fullers London Pride and Marstons Pedigree on three of four hand pumps. The pub sponsors the local football team and this knowledge adds to the feeling of a proper local.

Alan Winfield left this review about The Jolly Potters

The Jolly Potters is in the middle of Castle Donington and it used to be a Bass tied house and there is still a Bass lantern over the front door.
Once inside here the pub has been opened out but has lots of different drinking areas,ther were two real ales on the bar we had a drink of Bass and this was a nice drink the other beer was GK IPA.
