The Mount Pleasant pub is located at 291-293 Derbyshire Lane in Norton Lees. It was taken over by a new landlady and refurbished in the spring of 2017.
Sat in this pub on Saturday and asked for a bottle of wine and got a bottle of Hardy's. When me and my friend had finished it we asked the landlord for a bottle of the same, to which he replied that was the last bottle but had some cheap alternative, which we did not want.
So jokingly we said go and get one from the Co-Op down the road, which he refused. So we said we would go, to which he replied "do as you f****** want". What a wonderful response.
Now I understand why this pub is always empty when he is serving and nobody except a few of his real ale drinkers like him. He is the most miserable landlord we have ever come across.
I have been going in this pub for years and never had such a response ever. The sooner there is a new landlord in this pub the better.
Just tried this pub out for the first time it has got some great bargains on for lager and beer but that's where the good things end. The landlord is very ignorant and seems as if he doesn't want to be there, the pub is so cold and not very clean, which is a shame because it is typical old-style pub, which with a bit of care could be a fantastic place to go for a drink.
After reading about the high recommendation about this pub I decided to give it a whirl.
As for the landlord always smiling, I have never met such a miserable person in my life. As for the place being clean, the place is dirty and cold. The other review says this a small pub with high prices and I must agree - it is very expensive.
The few customers that do go in seem very pleasant but I cannot understand why they keep going in, as the landlord is so ignorant and as soon as he serves you he just wants to sit down and go to sleep. It seems like he does not want customers, so I will oblige him with that by not returning.
This is a very small pub with high beer prices. The rooms are tiny (one about the size of a large bathroom and one about the size of a medium lounge) but that doesn't make a difference, as on the occasions I have gone in it has been empty anyway. It does have a small outside play area for the kids though!
