Alex Conway left this review about Bunkers Hill

After a large refurbishment Bunkers Hill has re opened. Once inside there is one large open plan room with a bar to the right but is a lot smaller inside than the outside suggests. The refurbishment has been extensive and incorporates a modern bare wood/plain metal style that is all the range but is too modern for my liking but does look very presentable. On the bar are ten craft keg options and five hand pulls. Doombar is a regular at £3.10 with the rest changing and usually incorporating micro brews. On my visit it was a Fullers takeover night showcasing their beers and all that were tried were kept in a very good condition including pride (£3.30) and HSB (£3.50). This pub could best be described as one of the new breed of real ale/craft beer pubs that appeal to a younger trendier customer which i do not like as much but the beer is of a good quality and i would return if around these parts.

Soup Dragon left this review about Bunkers Hill Inn

A large detached corner pub, with patio area. A former bank, it is in Victorian/Edwardian red brick, with copious stone work in a slightly neo-classic style (pilasters and pediments for example). Allegedly, it takes its name from a former local lane and pub, which may in turn come from the battle in the American War of Independence. The interior as a single room (although there appeared to be a room upstairs judging by the number of people that used the stairs. The main room has chcolate, patterned wallpaper and wood panel walls, with a wood floor. There is a little fireplace with a mirror above, but otherwise is a little plain (apart from the chandeliers). High tables and and chairs are juxtaposed with standard ones and a sofa or two to provide some furniture mix. They do food - indeed, they are quite famous for their pizza, which alas, had ran out when we sought to order. There are TVs, which were shoing the footy and 20/20 cricket and there was no music. The service was ok, and there was a mixed clientele. Beer; usual stuff with continental/US lagers and Magpie Thieving Rogue, Pedigree, Everard's Euinox, Ossett Amber Gambler, Robinson's Elbow and Notts Brewery's Sir Blodeville on handpull - the Ossett and Blod were fine. A little too modern for me, but a great choice of beer and one certainly to revisit.

Real Ale Ray left this review about Bunkers Hill Inn

Situated at the back of the Ice Arena. A good all round pub this one, friendly staff and clean and tidy. Four ales on when visited, I went for the Flipside Chocolate Penny which when explained to me wasn't a chocolate tasting beer, more of a roasted malt taste and so it was pretty ok. Harvest Pale was on special offer at £2.15 a pint before 6pm daily. Would call again.

ROB Camra left this review about Bunkers Hill Inn

Large one roomed pub with lots of high tables and chairs along with a few more dining style tables. Bare floorboards and lots of windows make this quite a bright and airy pub. Very quiet on my Monday lunchtime visit (no surprise there then) but a good range of changing guest ales and the Northumberland Strawberry Blonde that I had was fine. Gives a small discount for Camra members as well on production of a Camra card. I would be happy to call in here again next time we're in Nottingham.

Alan Winfield left this review about Bunkers Hill Inn

This pub was converted from bank premises about 20 years ago.
The Bunkers as always sold lots of real ales from micro brewerys,the pub is one room that is quite sparsley decorated there are no carpets,there is also a room upstairs which can be used for meetings ect.
There are about 10 handpumps on the bar and the beer is always on top form.
This is a decent pub to have a few drinks of decent beer in but its not that comfy to stay all night.
