Built in 1938 by Watney’s and named in honour of the 1937 Derby winner, the first to be owned by a woman, Mrs G B Miller. Ironically, it later was bought by the Magic Pub Company and re-named the Hungry Horse. Fortunately it has reverted back to its proper name but it still carries that epithet which is used by the current owners, Greene King, for their chain of budget, family oriented food outlets. There are two separate bars, the right-hand one, which has a pool table and a dartboard, being the public. The left hand bar is made up of several different areas and is mostly given over to food. This is available from 11-10 Monday to Saturday and 11-9 on Sunday. There are some tables at the front, where there is a covered, heated and lit smoker’s area. Dogs are welcome at these tables but only guide dogs are allowed in the pub. There are some disabled parking spaces in the car park. Children are allowed in the bar until 6pm. A guest beer from a larger brewery is available – note that the handpump for this is in the right hand bar. IPA is sold with either a southern or northern head.
