The John Thompson is an attractive family run pub located in lovely surroundings by the river Trent. It has a large car park, well manicured lawns and chalets for those who want to extend their stay.. Inside it is pleasantly decorated with plenty of seating spread throughout the establishment avoiding the feeling of being overcrowded. There is a good selection... More

I've decided to 'add a review' about this place as we've enjoyed the John Thompson for quite some time now. The pub is out in the countryside next to The River Trent. It lends itself to really good walks if you fancy that kind of thing. Both beer and food have always been 'spot on', whether its a carvery or... More

We are an ex-pat Derby couple who return to visit family and friends on a regular basis. How lucky for us that we found the JT. We love it and cannot speak highly enough of the standard, service and the cost of the cabins. We are almost made to feel like one of the family by JT, Anne and Nick.... More

We've been going here for a long time now, mainly on Sunday nights to drink the place dry, but occasionally we'll pop over for lunch which we did last Friday. We knew that the lunchtime food is of very high quality and good value, and, of course, it was. What always impresses us about the JT is how attentive and... More

Pubs should have small menus. Here at the JT it is roast beef and Yorkshire Pudding, with the beef cut from a huge perfectly cooked joint. You can also get a salad or a sandwich so that just about caters for everyone. I am not clear why people want several pages of a menu when that usually means a bank... More

Lunch with old school friend and sister in law. Roast beef was something to behold, rare one side, well done the other side. Not seen such a large joint for ages, it was delicious. The whole pub is very nice indeed, furnishing, atmosphere etc., first class. You need to get there before 12 noon gets very busy, (not surprising) it's... More

For the second year we booked 2 lodges between five of us (2 in one cabin and 3 in another) for a Fri- Sun break staying in Lodges 1 & 2. It's a lovely setting, quiet, and fantastic when the weather is on your side. Everything is thought of; you receive bread, milk, coffee, tea, cereals, jams and biscuits. The... More
