Decent enough place with the bar in the middle and enough room for people to sit down. Four hand pumps and various craft offerings. Bottles and cans in fridges on right hand side.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Crafty One

Minimalistic modern bar with a bottle shop and canned craft beer to take home or drink on the premises. They also had two handpumps on the bar, so I went for the Aurora ales Light Show, from a microbrewery based in Ilkeston, also tried was the Adnams Mosaic on keg. I was also quite tempted to go for the Beavertown Neck Oil, which was only £2.40 a can, maybe on a next visit, when the new train station will be open, near the Dewdrop Inn.

The Crafty One is a new opening on South street.
Once inside there is a single L shaped room with the bar facing,this is up one step,the seating is normal tables and chairs to the front and tall tables and chairs to the rear left,there is a range of bottled beers on shelfs to the rear right.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Shiny Brewery Disco Balls,which went down well,the other real ale was Amber Toast.
There was also a range of keg craft beers which included Adnams Mosaic and the likes,i am not really bothered by these types of beers.
The pub was almost empty on my Saturday dinner visit,but this is early days so hopefully it does well in the future.
A decent enough pub to do while doing others in the area.
