Gill Smith left this review about Arkwright's Real Ale Bar

Really liked this friendly locals bar and it's choice of real ales. They served flights of beer so we had 3 thirds. Breweries available were Dukeries, Two Roses, Ashover, Briarbank and Wilde Child plus Marstons Pedigree. We chose Two Roses Cascade, Ashover Zoo and Briarbank Perpendicular, all of which were fine.

A back-street building in local stone, once the Conservative Club; it is now shared by the Strutt Club and this pub. The pub occupies a single ground floor room which has painted wood panelling all around, with vents for heat to disperse from the radiators hidden within. The panelling is topped by a shelf which is handy for standing your beer on if all the tables are occupied. Above the shelf the wall is papered and decorated with beer related posters in frames, with a high shelf of jugs and such. There are chairs of varying heights and firmness - there are cushions available if needed, hanging on hooks to the left on entry. There was background music that was lively but not too loud. I thought this was a well-presented room that gave an impression very like a traditional pub, although it has only been here for a short time.

The bar has six hand pumps, plus Pedigree drawn from the barrel and served from a jug, and many real ciders from polypins. The beers available at the time of my visit (see photos) were nearly all very pale but I had Furnace Amber Gambler, which was a best bitter in really good condition. I'd make a point of coming here next time I'm in Belper.

Arkwrights is a small single roomed pub that is below the Strutt club which has snooker tables,there is a connecting door to the club.

Once inside there is a smallish single oblong shaped room with the bar on the left side,the seating mainly normal tables and chairs with a tall table and chairs at each end of the room.
There were 6 real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Cross Bay Zenith which was a very nice drink,the other beers noted were Dancing Duck Dark Drake,Oakham Infinity,Castle Rock Harvest Pale,Leadmill Crafty ? and Hartshorn Ignite.
This place seemed a bit too plain for my liking.
