Stop off 2 on the Rate Beer Derby trip. Another pub in a mainly residential area, in fact blink and you might miss the door. 2 large rooms one with the bar and seating the other with seating. only led into a large garage and then a n ice beer garden. Again a selection of local beers I had both new beers and breweries. Certainly a great addition and nice place to stop off outside the city centre.


First on the RateBeer tour of Derby. Nice enough local pub, but next to impossible to find without local knowledge. The beers they had on were all new to me and 4 were Falstaff. Nice to know about but it was a bit out of the way.


Cask driven pub on the lower high street Lincoln. Opened days before the first lockdown. Small open plan pub with a nice little beer garden. Beer has always been well looked after. And normally a beer or two I’ve not seen or tried before.

Probably the best craft bar in Lincoln. However they also have a great cocktail range. It’s situated at the bottom of Lincoln’s Steep Hill. Large open plan interior. They have a range of Belgian beers on tap and normally a few interesting craft beers thrown in. There is also a very extensive can and bottle list. Certainly worth a visit if your in Lincoln.
