Owner Dan Moody, 37, has said the pub is inspired by the BBC show Peaky Blinders and his grandfather who was part of the garrison at Fort George, Scotland.

Dan explaining how he chose the pubs name said: "My mum use to tell me stories about my granddad when I was a kid and watching Peaky Blinders one of their pubs is also called The Garrison so it fit."

The keen brewer from South Normanton said when the building came up for sale he jumped at the opportunity.

Dan who also works as a self employed brewer and is a joiner by hobby made everything in the pub, he said: "I am very excited about the pub being open, but I am also a bit nervous.

Dan took inspiration from the Wrinkly Dog, on Outram Street, Sutton, which he helped set up last year with Michelle and Carl Feiner.

He said: "The pub is for people who like change, we will be changing the gins and real ales around so it will not constantly be the same.

"We also have a variety of local beers."

The pub will sell Moody Fox beer which Dan runs with Jody Fox, 37, from Mansfield.

Jody who cleaned the windows before the grand opening said: "The interest has been phenomenal.

"Our beer will be on at the pub permanently."

The pub will be open Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
