Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Royal Telegraph

The interior of this Marston's pub is larger than I expected, with a curved bar counter echoing the main façade. Slightly split-level (with two steps), and sub-divided into several seating / dining areas with a pool table at one end. Anonymous semi-modern furniture, with the only feature of note being the illuminated glazed panels above the central part of the servery. Standard pubco menu. On the real ale front, I found Pedigree (£3.00), Boon Doggle and Wainwright as a guest from three of four handpumps.

A large corner boozer average in every way.

Large corner pub that used to be called Strutts. It's not changed much since then though. It's got a large games area with pool table, quiz machine etc, loads of TVs for the football and opens early for breakfast. Three handpumps on the bar, but it's usually only Pedigree with the odd visit from a Jennings beer. It's not the best kept pint in Derby by a long way, but it's usually OK. It's a good place to watch a match as it's not as packed as those in central Derby.
