Still one of my favourite Nottingham pubs. The public bar was closed for a party of Trent Barton staff so I sat in the posh side and enjoyed a warm beef and horseradish roll with my pint.

Evening. That first glimpse of blue tiles on the ringroad means an impending visit to a pub in the style of old Nottingham.

Evening. Just has the feeling of how Nottingham pubs used to be 20 years ago. Traditional.

Still one of my favorite pubs in Nottingham, I sat in the public bar and listened to a couple of chaps complaining about a pub somewhere charging £2.80 for a pint.

A superb pub, although it seemed a bit quiet for a Saturday afternoon. I sat in the public bar which was showing sports on a projection TV, but I decided to just enjoy my beer and read a copy of the Morning Advertiser. The pub games on offer included Bar Billiards and Devil among the Taylors. There was a good range of ales on offer and I did not make a note of them all.

Website.

The pub is found in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, NG1 7HB.

A 1950s built 2 roomed pub with coloured tiled lower frontage which is found near the central bus station with frontage on a busy ring road. Often not as busy as it should be due to its proximity to The Vat and Fiddle - but this is not to denigrate it. Indeed, some might prefer its less busy and more relaxed atmosphere. 11 handpumps with 6 in the right hand bar and 5 in the left hand one. A Castle Rock tenanted house, it gives a card carrying CAMRA members' price discount and runs its own loyalty card scheme.

We have visited this pub 18 times, seen 31 different beers and tried 15 of them.
