Seven Stars (Derby)
Seven Stars, 97 King Street, Derby, Derbyshire.
A historic brewery inn, dated 1680. Owned by the Bates family in the 1800s. In 1920, Thomas Henry bought the inn, and on his death in 1934, his son Philip Henry took over.
Brewing continued until ca.1962, when Philip Henry sold to Scottish & Newcastle Breweries Ltd, at which time Younger's and McEwan's beers were introduced. According to a newspaper cutting inside the bar, the Scottish keg beers were not popular with the regular customers.
The former brewhouse was converted to a small snug with panelled walls. The pub is still trading.
