20 micropubs pulling in the drinkers in Chesterfield, the Peak District and Derbyshire are measured by Google reviews

A good pint of beer and a chat with your friends in a cosy atmosphere – what could be better than a visit to Derbyshire’s micropubs?

Chesterfield boasts the county’s oldest micropub in The Real Ale Corner which is the second oldest in the UK. Elsewhere, Derbyshire is brimming with such watering holes where beer made by microbreweries pulls in the customers.

The Micropub Association says: “A micropub is a small freehouse which listens to its customers, many serve cask ales, promotes conversations, shuns all form of electronic entertainment and dabbles in traditional pub snacks.”

Micropubs were championed by real ale consumer organisation CAMRA in its 1976 edition of the Good Beer Guide and have since gone from strength to strength.
