A little pub history

Originally known as The Navigation, a succession of inns has occupied the site where The Otter now stands since 1800. The building was renovated in 1927 when it was taken over by the Shaw family. The family was well known in the area because they rowed anglers across the river for a penny a head. Although The Otter no longer offers this service, we are still popular with diners and drinkers throughout Derbyshire and Leicestershire for our beautiful setting and welcoming atmosphere.
