Have been here a few times and love the burgers, maybe the best I've ever had. Small pub but right next to the canal so good to walk off the food. Set back from the street so very quiet and very friendly staff

Called for lunch on a Wednesday lunch time, great food served by carvers. Jeez and Tracy are new tenants in the pub but they have had years in the business and it shows. Great food and atmosphere.

3 people walking from Nottingham, this pub was at the top of the Erewash walk. Walking in to the pub we did not have high expectations. One person trying to clear up tables and serve did not seem enough. Ordered a burger for myself and my companions had the veggie dog and the other a steak. The burger tasted excellent,... More

The Great Northern is a recently refurbished freehold purchased from Greene King early 2013. The pub was renovated to a very high standard by Pub People and reopened in June of that year. The pub sits just off a junction from the busy A610 to Ripley from Nottingham and backs onto the canal, making it a hotspot in the summer.

Langley Mill is only a small town in the Amber Valley district of Derbyshire. It is on the border of Nottinghamshire, and runs into the towns of Aldercar (to the west) and Heanor (to the south). Across the River Erewash is the Nottinghamshire town of Eastwood. Although the town has an "NG" postcode, it is in Derbyshire. (The boundary used to be the River Erewash, but the River Erewash canal basin moved from Nottinghamshire to Derbyshire a few years ago, and the A610 is the new boundary.

A real landmark pub, the Great Northern has always had a massive focus on real ale and now, because it's a freehold, we can offer the widest range of local and national cask ales for miles around. The pub also has a strong cider following and so a permanent selection of, at least, two ciders proves hugely successful.

When the pub reopened it also reopened with a brand new kitchen and new menu. The menu can be downloaded by simply clicking on the above link and offers a range of traditional pub favourites plus a selection of steaks and grills. The pub also has a daily chef's specials chalkboard to look out for which houses unique, interesting and seasonal dishes.

The Great Northern offers free WiFi and free parking. CAMRA discount of 15p with valid membership card.
