YOU MUST TRY THIS PUB....... This is a real hidden gem, we visited Burton Upon Trent to go to the Brewery Museum and was recommended this pub, it's got lots of charm and and is a real step back in time.

Really genuinely characterful original interior, no makeovers here! A good and varying selection of real ales sold straight from the barrel. Pork pies and crisps but no food - a true and very busy drinkers pub. Check it out if you're visiting Burton.

Just a great little establishment if you are a beer or cider drinker. Not for the fashionable type but a fabulous selection of cask ale (light, full bodied, stout and more) and ciders if you have the staying power. Also serves pork pies if you require any sustenance before you head to the wonderful curry house next door. Live folk... More

Unspoilt by time what a beautiful little place, I'm so glad I found this place it serves some of the best real ales you will ever find in the comfortable old world surroundings. There is not many places left in the world like this and this is one of the best! 😀
