The majority of pubs have now reopened after the latest lockdown, albeit still with restrictions. Many pubs currently have temporary trading hours; these are shown where known. We also show pubs we know have still not reopened as temporarily closed.

Please note that due to the pandemic currently being allowed to run out of control, many pubs are having to close temporarily due to staff or customers getting "pinged". Please check with the pubs if you plan to travel any distance.

A large landmark building, close to Derby Road Station (which gave it its name). The Railway is a pub with a long-standing reputation for live music.

It was renovated late-2016 and is run as a pub/music venue with live music Friday and Saturday, plus occasional Sunday gigs. Admission fees may be payable on occasions to get in.

The pub may close early some nights if it's quiet and on occasions may not open at all.

The pub can be seen on this old OS map from about 1902 (interactive map)
