The Underdog

Cask Ales | Craft Keg | Sharing Boards | Range Of Spirits | Fine Wines | Friendly Staff


About Us

The Underdog opened on the 18th September 2019 after undergoing extensive renovation both inside and out. We wanted to achieve a triangle of modern, industrial and traditional with a hint of a town bar nestled in Dronfield. To achieve this we enlisted the help of all local trades and suppliers. We have continued this ‘keeping it local’ theme throughout and use as many local suppliers as possible to help support local businesses. Derbyshire Distillery, Abbeydale Brewery, Triple Point Brewery, Dronfield Wine World, Bradbury’s Cheese and Adams Fruits to name but a few. All staff are also from the Dronfield area.

We offer a wide range of Cask Ales and Craft Keg. Our Gin and Wine selections are extensive - all wines available by the glass

We have partnered with Derbyshire Distillery and created our own Gins ‘Queen Moon’ Blood Orange and ‘Sire’ Dry which are available to purchase in the pub and to enjoy at home.

Operation Update

As we find ourselves in varying stages of ‘Lockdown’ or ‘Tiers’ our general operation as a business has had to adapt and overcome ever changing obstacles, as have many other businesses.

During this Lockdown we are operating a free ‘Home Delivery’ service to S18 of fresh cask/keg in 2 pint hoppers. Cans, Minikegs, wine, fizz and gin also available. Other postcodes can be delivered to for a small delivery charge. Minimum orders apply.

Please contact us with your requests and we will do our best to accommodate where possible.

We are using as many local suppliers/businesses as possible... we have to stick together during these very strange times in order to ensure we ALL make it out the other side!!!
