I called in here about a year ago to find no beer on hand pumps at all. I enquired of the woman at the bar if they were still doing Bass from the cellar. She said she was going to see how it went, a meaningless reply since if it's not available then the demand will surely dry up. Others, like me, will instead go to more reliable pubs like the Brunswick and the Alexandra. I called around again last week to see how it's going, and was not at all surprised to see the pub closed.

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

Interesting, old-fashioned pub. Opened out inside at some stage to leave a 'L'-shaped room with fairly basic furniture and decor in the bar, but a well-lit counter and a more comfortable (if darker) side seating area. Also has a rear lounge with a pool table, but this is not obvious to the first-time visitor. None of the four handpumps were working on this visit, but thankfully the much anticipated Bass was still being served from the jug on the back shelf behind the counter (£3.20).

It's all change at The Station. David has retired to Skegness and a new couple have taken over the pub. They have plans to make much more use of the function room at the rear and to take the radical step of leaving the door open!!! They also plan to get another handpump in use, sadly they look like choosing Sharps Doombore as the new ale. Draught Bass, Old Speckled Hen and Doombore isn't going to set the pulses racing in Derby. We'll have to see how it goes, we'll call in next time we're in Derby.

We always call in here when we're in Derby. Called in last weekend for a couple of pints of Bass and a chat with David. I used to work in Derby a few years ago and got to know him then. He hasn't changed, the door was still shut. It's a great little pub and both the pub and David are a dying breed, long may they both continue.

Traditional local, close to the station as you would expect. I used to call in here on my way back to the hotel when staying in Derby. Called in on Saturday and nothing had changed. Always has well kept Bass served from a metal jug which was excellent on Saturday (I don't know if Soupy & OB missed that as it's never on the handpump), usually has Cally Deuchars or XPA or both on tap. Great place to go if Derby County are playing as the landlord doesn't let any dipsticks in and you can have a quiet couple of pints talking with the sensible fans and the regulars. The door was closed as usual on Saturday but a friendly knock will get you in. People's opinions differ about this pub and the landlord, but I like it.
