Best Things To Do After A Great Gastropub Meal In Derby
Imagine this, you called in for a gourmet gastropub meal in The Boars Head Hotel with family or friends. Filled your tummies with delicious food and paid the bill, so now, what’s next? Typically, you may decide to call it a day and make your journey home, but where’s the fun in that? In this article, we suggest the best things to do after a gastropub meal in Derby. Afterall, there is so much more on offer after your scrumptious meal with us!

Take A Stroll

After a three-course meal, you may think the last thing you want to do is go for a walk. However, if you have overindulged or tend to experience indigestion, taking a nice and easy stroll can help to aid and ease it. Feel free to explore our facilities such as our sun terrace and garden. Walking after a meal has other benefits too, it can help reduce blood sugar levels, which is important for those suffering with diabetes. Plus, it feels good to stretch your legs after sitting down while taking in the view of our beautiful countryside surroundings!

Explore Derby

If you happen to come for an early afternoon lunch or dinner, you still have the rest of the day to fill up. Following your meal with us, why not explore the beautiful city of Derby? Luckily, the centre of Derby is only a 25 minute drive from The Boars Head Hotel. There is much to see and do for everyone, for example, you can visit Markeaton Park for crazy golf, outdoor cinema entertainment and family activities. Or perhaps taking a trip downtown to the Derbion shopping centre is more our thing, no matter, you can do that instead. Afterwards, catch an evening show at the ODEON cinema or the Derby theatre to end the day in a relaxing but entertaining fashion. 

After Dinner Drinks

Alternatively, why not stay with us a little longer? Order a round of after dinner drinks to help break down your meal. Our pub has a warming and lively atmosphere, the perfect place to relax after your meal. Our bar team stocks an extensive choice of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages as well as hot and soft drinks. Sip on your regular ale, beer or cider of choice, otherwise try something new with our specials or mixologist cocktail creations from our drinks menu.  

Sing Along To Live Music

If you happen to come for a meal on the right evening, we regularly host live music nights, special events and competitions for our guests to enjoy.
