Bucking Fastard left this review about Prince of Wales

A very decent proper boozer.It retains a classic two room layout,smaller lounge to the left,public bar to the right.Very rigorous T&T before entering,hand sanitiser and then shown to your table but done in a friendly ,chatty style.The public has reduced furniture with some high two seater tables opposite the bar,stools and some larger tables elsewhere.Maximum pub capacity 34 but no where near this total on a Wednesday evening visit,an evening when many close by pubs are closed.
The flatscreen were playing free to air programs a little loud on entering but as Emerdale started we were asked about the volume,which was turned right down.
Friendly guv'nor and locals gave a great curry recommendation .The GBG listing was fully justified by the condition of the single real ale on offer in Castle Rock Elsie Mo.There were two real Lilly ciders on handpump while other taps remained unused.
Well worth a visit if you like tradition and in these Covid times the pub isn't getting the young circuit drinkers attention,which sadly is hitting the coffers quite badly.
Use it or loose it .

Modern furniture and decor gives this the look and feel of a sports bar, though it retains the two room layout of a pub, and there are hand pumps too. I called in here briefly a few weeks back but the landlord only just had time to tell me that there were usually more beers on at a weekend before I had to dash to catch a train. This Sunday's pub crawl found the promised three beers and a cider on, and the two that we tried were in very good condition. My Pentrich 1817 was a bit underwhelming taste-wise, but I couldn't fault the way it had been kept and served. Standing as it does halfway between the excellent Burnt Pig and Spanish Bar, it would be easy to pass this one by, but I reckon it's worth another visit.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Poacher

Previously known as the Poacher until Feb of this year, now serving three ales on handpump, Magpie Stout, Adnams Ghost Ship and Pentrich Red ale. This is a two roomed pub with a central bar serving both sides. The interior is traditional and comfortable and the pub is well kept. Always worth a look in for their changing guest beers.
