Busy but we got a comfy seat and proceeded to talk a load of nonsense for a couple of hours.

Went in at 6 to check the pub out. Lovely interior - slightly shabby chic in terms.of furniture but tastefully done. The bar is the centre of the pub though food is served too. There were 6 Nottingham Brewery beers on as well as a guest ale and an assortment of generic lagers. It felt welcoming though not obtrusively so. I felt completely comfortable sitting there by myself drinking in ale and atmosphere in equal measure.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Nottingham - Rock Bitter3.80ExceptionalDelightfully hoppy but with a hint of mellow floweriness. Not top of the barrel, but one of those rare beers (like Goacher's Light) that is wonderful at any stage of its life.
Nottingham - Sooty Oatmeal Stout4.80ExceptionalAbsolutely delicious - hint of sweetness floated over the top of a more savoury flavour. Beautifully conditioned at just the right temperature. Apparently now available all year round.

The pub is found in Ruddington, Nottinghamshire, NG11 6DT.

Just taken over on a 7 year lease by Nottingham Brewery and re-named from being the Bricklayers Arms, this is a nicely done out traditional High Street village pub with 6 Nottingham Brewery beers on. Food is served - apparently high class traditional pub food but I haven't tried it yet. Atmosphere is good - it sounded like Friday afternoon in the pub when I was there and just kept filling up. It has the potential to be one of the VERY BEST pubs in Nottinghamshire. The beer is genuinely exceptional - as good as Nottingham Brewery's famed tap, The Plough.

We have visited this pub 5 times, seen 11 different beers and tried 8 of them.
