The community

The pub sits on the main road through Little Eaton, a village in the borough of Erewash, Derbyshire. The beautiful Amber Valley surrounds the village with open countryside and stunning views and walks.

Although it has all the charm of village life and the peak district on its doorstep, you can reach the centre of Derby in ten minutes, with all of its shopping centres, sports venues and university life.

Little Eaton is situated four miles to the north of Derby and lies between the River Derwent on the western and the A38 Bypass on the eastern side of the village.

There is a good spread of shops, a primary school, three pubs and other amenities are well catered for in what is a thriving community.

St Peter’s Park, which was given to the village by Thomas Bates in 1902, provides excellent sporting facilities. The sports pavilion was erected in 1966, funded by money raised locally. One of the latest arrivals is the popular Derby Garden Centre, situated on the southern outskirts of Little Eaton.
