Real Ale HousesDiscover the Best Real Ale Houses in England

Travel gurus at the Lonely Planet describe Derby as the “best place to drink real ale in the World” and the folks at CAMRA reckon there is more real ale choice in Derby than anywhere else. Hey, who are we to disagree?  The CAMRA Summer Beer Festival is just around the corner from 9 – 13 July, making an even bigger reason to visit.
The emphasis though is on the quality of the ale and its impact on your tastebuds, as well as on your pub experience. Derby’s real ale houses come both traditional or modern and attract a mature, independent clientele.
