Recently reopened and now incorporating a Grumpy Mole restaurant, which backs onto the attractive garden. Comfortably furnished in a modern style, with two separate areas. Named after the horse that won the 1838 derby on its first and only race. All Derby winners' horseshoes are mounted in the pub along with other equine artefacts . The original pub on this site was built in the 17th Century and since then has been burnt down and rebuilt on more than one occasion. By tradition each year the name of the winning Derby horse mysteriously appears chalked on the well the night before.
