Hatton is a village and civil parish in South Derbyshire, England.  It is located 6 km north of Burton upon Trent, 20 km west of Derby and 40km east of Stoke-on-Trent.  The village benefits from a railway station that is served by cross country trains as well as local buses to Derby and Burton upon Trent.  Both these transport methods are used by cask ale hunters, using ‘day rover’ style tickets.  The next village, Tutbury which is a five minute walk away has Tutbury Castle, one of the prisons of Mary Queen of Scots which you will find many events that draws in plenty of tourists throughout the year.

Pub Layout

There are two distinct trading areas in the pub which is extremely well presented and has a warm atmosphere. A pool table and darts board are key attractions but the best kept secret is the external area to the rear which has been developed into a wonderful area for drinkers and families and the layout lends itself to live music as well. One area of the pub lends itself to occasional use as a function room.



This site offers a great opportunity for either someone new to the trade or an experienced operator. They will need to be ready and willing to integrate into village life and have the vision to make the pub even more appealing through an expansion of the current offer to include a handheld food offer and ensure that the pub plays a role in the local community. Cask Ales sell well at this pub and with a regular calendar of entertainment and music will ensure strong weekly sales.
