A late Victorian terraced pub, with beer garden, which is named after the former Prime Minister of the period. It is of three storeys, a generally in plain brick, but has a decorative string course, stone lintels, pedimented entrance and the most unusual feature - the heavy brick mullions. You enter a small vestibule, where the former outdoor may have been. It has two rooms, served by a central island serving bar. Off to the left there is the lounge.It is in green, with blue bench seats and carpet. Lots of brass is dotted about, as well as small objects in cabinets. Off to the right is the bar. This room is in red and white, with a black and red tile floor and brown bench seats. The TV wasn't on, but the radio was. The room has a sport them, with tennis racquets, fishing rods and a bar billiard table on the wall! Lots of sport pictures are mounted too. There is a dart board and trophy cabinet. The service was friendly and the place clearly populated by locals - also with a friendly feel. Beer; usual tap stuff, with Oakham's Inferno and Scarlet Macaw, London Pride, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Brewster's Decadence and a decent Castle Rock Harvest Pale Ale on handpull. A great, a pretty much unaltered back-street pub - and definitely worth finding out if in the area. I am sure I will be back.

This is a good traditional pub and is well worth a visit. Once through the main door you have a choice of either the lounge or bar side, either rooms were equally as good as the other. We took the bar side and were impressed with the red and black floor tiles and the original cornice work. There were six ales on handpump, I went for the Notts Brewery Rock Bitter, which was spot on.

The Gladstone is a three storey pub that is set in a terrace,the pub is hidden away in the back streets of carrington.
Once inside this pub seemed pretty much unaltered with a few different rooms,there was a fairly basic bar and a more comfortable lounge.
This pub used to be a Whitbread tied house and there were real ales on here.
The pub now has a good choice of real ales on the bar with a few locale beers.
This is not the easiest pub to find but it is worth it when you get there.
