When you enter the Quiet Woman, you step back in time, it's a real traditional pub. The landlord has been there for nearly 30 years and it looks like nothing has changed. The beer was good but food is limited to pork pies and pasties...More

Most of the other reviews here have it spot on, stepping through the door is akin to stepping back in time to the 1950's. My wife & I were the only customers at 7:30 on a Friday evening but (after a short wait) Ken the...More

From J Boy of Derby As others have said to venture into this pub is to step back in time when the village was the life and soul of the area. The beer is good, the food is basic (pies crisps) etc and the landlord...More

Had been here before and couldn't wait to come back. Ken, the landlord, is great, and was witty and entertaining to a large group of us visiting this weekend. Be polite and accept his welcome into what is effectively his home and front room, and...More

This Marston's house is fastastically in keeping with the surroundings. The decor has a very rural feel, complete with open brick fireplace and tiled floor. Another point of interest includes the collection of Good Pub Guide stickers by the bar, dating back to 1977. Excellent...More

If you want gastro food and posh wines its not for you. For me and my partner it was perfect. You have the complete experience of a traditional pub, a proper landlord, a few interesting locals who share their history (if you're nice). A welcoming...More

This pub was highly recommended by a friend who appreciates good beer, so on a recent trip to the area I thought I'd give it a look. It wasn't what I expected at all which was a large, thronging, popular pub with plenty of ales...More
