Pubs in Derby
« on: November 17, 2012, 12:53:42 PM »
Hi forumites.

As myself and mates journeying up from NW Kent will have a few hours to kill before the gig of the decade (oooh, i can't wait) i was wondering if any of you local Cable fans would be kind enough to give me the lowdown on the pubs worth frequenting/avoiding and any worthwhile eateries in and around the Abbey Street/Macklin Street area?

Thanks.

Damon

Wish i could help but i'm making the journey up myself from Portsmouth, in hindsight we should have arranged a sublingual forum members meet up in a local pub.

there isn't really much around macklin street/abbey street unless you're after a kebab after hours. I'd recommend The Frairy, it is a scream pub on ashbourne road. You can walk to the venue in about 5 minutes from it.

Does anyone know what time cable will be on Saturday? I'm going for some grub near tower bridge before and just planning what time to have it to make the set

There's a nice little pub called Ye Olde Spar Inn further up Abbey Street, as you are walking away from The Venue.

If you venture further into town, the Dolphin is nice. There's a couple of Weatherspoons too, The Babbington Arms and The Standing Order...

Also if you're getting the train, The Brunswick, near the station is a super nice real ale pub...

Best pub in Derby is the Greyhound on Friar gate, about a 15 min walk from the venue. If you're after somewhere a bit closer then Bar One's a good 'un too and only round the corner. Think we'll be having a cheap couple in the hound prior to the gig.
