Micropub with unpredictable opening hours. Google suggests that the pub opens at midday on a Saturday. Whatpub states 1pm. Facebook times have not been populated, but Saturday opening times were listed as 4pm as of March 31st, 2021.

As it happens, none of these times were correct. Luckily, there were times listed on the door. So, arriving shortly after 1pm, we had time to have a drink and something to eat at the Badger Box just down the road before this place opened at 2pm.

The front room of the pub feels like somebody's house, making it more akin to a traditional pub than a micropub. Items on display included a stuffed fox. A TV in one corner seemed a bit out of place and was switched on to show the rugby, despite us being the only customers in and not being particularly interested in watching it. Music was also playing in the background, which created far too much conflicting noise than was necessary.

The bar itself is in a separate room at the rear. 2 real ales were being served - Blue Monkey Infinity & Hollow Stone Pale Ale. There was also a good selection of boxed Lilley's ciders stacked at the side of the bar - Pineapple Cider, Mango Cider, Strawberry Cider, Woo Woo Cider, Pina Colada Cider, Cheeky Pig, Gladiator, Cherries and Berries & Bee Sting Perry.

A slightly strange micropub, this one. If you can fathom out when it is actually open, it's a decent stop for a drink.

This former mobile phone shop/greengrocers, is the sister pub to Byron's Rest in Hucknall. The pub is named after the a local landowner back in the 1700's who built the local church. The interior consists of a small front lounge area and then one step up into a smaller back room where you can find a couple of barstools opposite the bar, along with a narrow pot shelf and a very small built-in seat, along with table under the stairs. The bar was oak and finished in a medium oak stain, the bar looked to be reclaimed and had a heavy and elaborate brass handrail along the counter. The flooring in the bar area was red quarry tiles, whereas the front room was timber. The walls were mainly panelled and finished in a French green colour along with the front bench seating.
We were both quite thirsty on arrival and explained to the barman and his pal that we had just walked all the way from the Pit in Newstead, which was about a mile and a half. 'Why didn't you get the bus?' was the jovial reply, to which I replied that it did pass us on the way. We did manage to catch the bus on the way back thank goodness.
Four ales on handpump, Grasshopper Knee High, Black Iris Snake Eyes, Dancing Duck Quack Amadeus and Grass Hopper Devil's Horse. We spent quite some time here, as everyone was so friendly and chatty plus the Grasshopper and Black Iris, was going down a treat.
