Will Larter left this review about The Weighbridge Inn

My final pub of an 11-pub crawl around Burton, but I can remember talking to the owner, one of the brewers at Muirhouse in Ilkeston, about their inability to find a pub to take on in their home town (hence their presence here in Staffs), so I can't have been too far gone. This is a micropub based in a stand-alone building not far from the station. There was a cheerful, buzzy atmosphere when I arrived half an hour before my train out of Burton, but I received a friendly welcome and discussed the beer options with the barman/owner/brewer. With only one of their beers on the bar (the other three were from another brewery - a sort of tap takeover in a brewery tap) I thought it would be rude not to drink it: Tick Tock Boom, a 4.5% best bitter with a very nice bitter finish. It must have been good because usually after a day's drinking the taste buds become a little jaded, but this one cut right through, and had to be my beer of the day (in the face of some stiff competition, it has to said). Definitely worth a return visit, but note that opening hours on WhatPub and Facebook are not the same, so check before making a special journey.

An intriguing little place by the railway station and Travelodge. It’s a former coal yard office which is now essentially a small micro leased by Muirhouse Brewery. Two rooms, a plain bar area with a J shaped bar counter on entering and another further back with all the lights off. Only one old boy and a barmaid at 10.30pm on a Thursday evening. Four ales on, 2x Muirhouse, Wantsum Black Pig West Coast Rock Wonky Donkey. I tried the Muirhouse Hop Garden which a bit warm and so-so (NBSS 2) and not a particularly good brew anyway. Maybe I timed my visit badly but I didn’t really rate it much.

Decent two room micro pub with four hand pumps, the best of which was 4.8% ABV. Pleasant landlord. We went back prior to getting the train and there are also take outs available.
