Called in for a pint on Sunday afternoon with my wife and dogs. Good selection of real ales always available. Now the colder days/nights are with us the stove was burning in the back room and the pub was as warm as the welcome.

The Marlpool Ale House is a gem! If you're anywhere near Heanor you really must pop in for a pint or several.

Great friendly little place, just the job for great beers and chat. Andy is a great host serving his own beers and a good selection of other beers and ciders. Good outside space, lovely on summer evenings and weekends. A must visit.

I've been here a few times now, its a small traditional pub, just what I like. There's a reasonable selection of beers, not just Marlpool beers but also guest beers as well. May favourite is Blind Boris, a dark chocolate mild.

I called in for a swift couple after work and this place suits me perfectly. A good range of real ales (I went for a ruby beer from a Durham brewery), no music and gaming machines and customers chatting rather than being glued to their...More

This is a lovely little pub set in what looks outside like any other house on the street. It's small but very friendly... definitely worth a try

Living in NZ for the past 10 years, it was great to visit friends in my home county of Derbyshire and an immense joy, to visit the Marlpool Ale House. There is a certain charm in a brew-pub with no pretence. A family experience of...More
