The 'Alternative'­ Winter Pub Tour of Derby...

Fed up of the same old pub companies? Want a change from 'The Harvesting', 'The Starving Donkey' or 'The Snail & Cabbage?'. Then join us on a tour of Pubs with real character where real characters meet.

Scheduled for the coldest, darkest time of the year, we will be focusing on the colourful 'Normanton' area of Derby with it's eclectic mix of diversity/ethnicity. Meeting at the Neptune pub opposite Westfield shopping centre, we will stomp out of town and make our way to pubs such as the Vulcan and the wonderful, hidden gem of a real Ale pub called The Falstaff Arms.

This will be a 'Come Rain, Hail or Snow' event that will not be cancelled by the weather! So step out of your comfort zone and meet real people in real pubs.

  • Nathan

    I am new to this group and would love to take the opportunity to meet new people and possibly make new friends, but it'll be a bit difficulty when several of you already know each other and looking at the list will mean getting to know a lot of different people lol.

      Hi, I've got the same problem...I've been in Derby for three weeks and I don't know anybody here. I would really like to join this group but I feel super shy.

  • Rob

    The falstaff is excellent, if you've not been there before, you're in for a treat....

    January 30, 2014

    • Helen

      is there a list? i can't even see a list! i'm running low on cash so may meet you somewhere along the non-existent list. in other words, i'll ring someone!

      January 30, 2014

      Meeting at the *Neptune pub* opposite Westfield shopping centre, we will stomp out of town and make our way to pubs such as the *Vulcan* and the wonderful, hidden gem of a real Ale pub called *The Falstaff Arms.*

    Hi katy, this sounds great fun, I'm working til 9 but would love to join you then. Is there anyway to get in touch to find out where u are? Jenny x

    January 29, 2014

    • Simon B.

      Hi Jenny, a contact number will be sent out usually the day before so you'll be able to call or text to find out where we are. But don't count on the mentioned pubs being the exact route after the starting point, it could end up a bit random, hopefully :)

    I think I can make this.. if I manage to end up in the right city this time :-)

    Now now...calm doon...I'm sure if people go on this world wide web thing and ask Mr Google an answer will be forthcoming (a bit like the Wizard of Oz but without the curtain!)

    Out on the bike ride at the Malt Shovel in Worthington discussing which pubs we will be going to rather than how much tge event will cost !

    Shall we rename this as the stupid questions event?!!!

    January 19, 2014

    • Steve

      I don't see why you should single this one out :-)

      Blimey Monica, you read my mind ;-)

      There's a £3 all day car park that backs onto the Neptune, new to derby so not sure what the roads called but the women that run the car park are lovely- and it's cheap! :)

    December 16, 2013

  • Rich

    Any ideas of cost?

    November 3, 2013

    • Katy

      That will entirely depend on how much beer you will buy!

      November 17, 2013

    • Rich

      The drinks aren't on you then Katy? ;-)

      November 18, 2013

  • Katy

    Awesome! Will I need a packed lunch and a map?

    October 12, 2013

    • Chris

      No but bring a compass. You'll perhaps not need it but I'll bet someone will have 'lost their bearings' my the end of the evening! :-)
