Real Ale Ray left this review about The PotHole

The Pothole is now under new ownership from Falstaff Brewery. This is a one roomed micro with a small snug out the back. I thought the interior was interesting with its theme towards electric components sourced by the owner of Falstaff.
Two large insulators from a pantograph used to pick up power from an electric loco were used to support a drinking shelf across the front window. This micro also had an excellent range of ales across 6 handpumps. Four from Falstaff and one guest, Falstaff A Fistful of Hops, TATE, Smiling Assassin, Phoenix and Crusader. Their guest beer was from Wolds Farm Brewery Porter.

This was my first pub of the day, following a train ride from Sheffield and a bus out from Derby. Arriving at 12:25 and expecting the pub to be open, it was a surprise to find a note on the door with revised hours for the "festive season": 2pm opening rather than 12. I could see someone cleaning the tables inside, so I chapped on the door and asked if he was the owner. He confirmed that he was, and when I told him I'd come all the way from Sheffield he just said he was sorry. The changed hours had been "extensively advertised" (there's nothing on Facebook) and he hadn't pulled the lines through yet. Sorry. Well, I'm sorry too. Sorry I can't write a review for this website saying how good your pub is. Sorry.
