Newly opened micropub (May 2019), Swadlincote's first, close to the town centre. It is named after Jack Bodell (1940-2016), the legendary local heavyweight boxing champion.

The smart single room, with a tiny alcove to one side, features exposed brickwork, wooden bar counter and furniture, and framed photographs from Jack Bodell's career.

The available cask beers and other drinks, such as ciders, keg beers and lagers, are listed on wall-mounted boards close to the bar.

Occasional live music and quiz nights (see Facebook page for details).

Fresh food is limited to filled cobs and pork pies.

No pub car park, but free parking in nearby public car parks.
