Not only has it got a Village Green it is an Urban Village Winner in the competition organised by none other than the Derbyshire Rural Community Council – big time stuff eh.

A pool table, dart board, BT Sports, fruit machine and live music meant that this place would maybe where the young hipsters in Breaston (under the age of 50) hang out of a weekend.

A short post but don’t let that put you off just how good Breaston is for pubs….one for the Southworths on their next visit.
