Built in 1886 as a six-bedroom hotel, the Falstaff was designed by Derby architect James Wright for local wine merchants Pountain, Giradot and Forman. 1933 saw a switch to pub operation with some inevitable rearrangement. The public bar still has its Victorian bar counter and fine bar back, the latter in two sections. Part of the wall was removed to enable access to the original off-sales area. In the rear bar, with its old bench seating, you can make out the position of the original bar counter before replacement post-war. The wall to the former living room at the back has gone and this area now houses a pool table. The hotel front door formerly led to the main reception room with the residents' lounge on the right; the wall between them was taken out in 1933 and a small curved counter inserted in one corner. The current bar counter is from the 1990s but the fixed seating and fireplace are Victorian.
