There is nothing wrong with sobriety in moderation.

Fishpond  is a large bar which shows its use as a live music venue. The large beer 'garden' area is pleasant. Guest real ales available, as is reasonably priced good food.

Princess Victoria had three reasl ale pumps on view but none could serve any beer. The outside area is on the busy pavement next to the busy road. Pub has been closed and re-opened October 2010.

The Riva looks very traditional from the outside and has a beer garden to match this image. Inside is a different matter. It has been refurbished as a restuarant and the bar area, thouigh comfortable is more of a waiting room before sitting down, Not a standing at the bar counter.

Old Bank Cafe Bar is, again, I am afraid not a standing at the counter type of place. It is more of a bistro so you really have to sit at a table. Uncomfortable if you are not eating.

The Midland is on the river side of the road and overlooks the river Derwent. Seems very interested in serving meals rather than beer.

County and Station is a Marston's pub opposite the Midland. Real ale is served in room to the left and dining opposite
