Update 20th September :
Having been along to the opening night I can really recommend this ale house, I've never been in a micropub before. I was the first customer so got to photograph the very first pint being pulled.
The atmosphere is "intimate" and friendly, great bar staff and handy for town. I wish them great success with this ale house, I'm fairly sure its going to be very successful where its located due to the amount of footfall.
My opening night photos from The Last Post Ale House, Derby :

The licensing hours are 11am to 11pm
The property was originally a post office so in recognition of this the pub is called the Last Post.
If your wondering where exactly that is, here is a photograph I took three days before the ale house opens. You can see The Mile pub on Friar Gate, around the corner from that on Uttoxeter Old Road you will find the Last Post Ale House.

Following from the success of the Little Chester Ale House George & Walter from Wentwell Brewery are opening this second micro pub in Derby. This new micro pub is slightly smaller than The Little Chester Ale House with a capacity of about 24 persons but the cellar is a lot bigger which will enable them to have 5 hand pumps on the bar.
Here is a view inside the Ale House three days before its opening :
