Steve C left this review about Trent Bridge Inn (JD Wetherspoon)

This Wetherspoons is known as the World Renowned Trent Bridge Inn by cricket fans watching leather on willow hosted at the adjacent Trent Bridge Cricket Ground. This is a large pub with a front bar that was in use and a longer rear bar that is “used for table orders”, which means closed during quiet periods. The front bar had three or four hand pumps and the side had ten. With Nottingham Forest’s City Ground also a stone’s throw away there is plenty of standing room to accommodate the hoards of sports fan when required.
A sign on the front bar was advertising the real ale as Nottingham Brewery’s Trent Bridge, Sharp’s Sea Fury, Burton Bridge’s Top Dog Stout and Arkell’s Kingsdown. I had a very nice pint of stout that was cheap as chips, even for a Spoons. The usual suspects of Ruddles, Doom Bar and Abbot were also available, as well as Bottle Kicking Cider Company’s Scrambler. I found the service to be very friendly and the atmosphere was decent even though it was a quiet late Wednesday afternoon. Worth a look.

same old same old, like every other Wetherspoons beer quality lets it down. choice wise this is probably the best selection of beers i have ever seen in a Wetherspoons with five Nottingham brewery beers (Legend, Epa, Trent bridge ale, rock mild and rock bitter) on the bar on my last visit. I had a pint of legend (£2.50) my favourite Nottingham brewery beer and was sadly not impressed, the beer had been kept so cold it was totally destroyed of any flavour. This is a shame as the pub ticks all the other boxes with a vast range of seating, separate rooms for sports, quiet conversation and eating as well as a decent beer garden overlooking the cricket stalls.

This pub would score higher but at the end of the day if the beer is not up to scratch it is going to be hindered. sort out the cellar and this could be a brilliant place to frequent.

Update 2020 * beer quality has improved and along with the roebuck has the ebst beer selection of the Wetherpersons in Nottingham

A decent Spoons right next to the cricket ground and the football ground. We called in for breakfast so it was fairly quiet. I imagine it resembles hell when there is a match on. Good choice of beers including a few local breweries. I would happily call in again.

As noted below this is an original red brick pub that is next door to the cricket ground and uncomfortably close to the Nottingham Forest football ground. I was glad I got here early as they were using plastic glasses because later on there was a friendly football game. The pub is centred around a large bar area where there are three sets of hand pumps with 3, 4 and 5 giving a total of 12. These had the house Nottingham Trent Bridge beer and Pedigree doubled, the two GK Beers, Nottingham Rock Mild, Extra pale Ale & Supreme Bitter, Falstaff Sleepy Town & Suscon Screamer and Brewster's Aromantica. I went for the Rock Mild (£2.65) which was in good nick and more warm than cold. The plastic glass was obviously a re-usable one and better quality than any I'd seen before. More football shirts started to appear so I headed off East.
This one is expensive for a Midlands Spoons but the good choice of beers makes it well worth a visit but preferably when there is no football or cricket.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Trent Bridge Inn (JD Wetherspoon)

Excellent Wetherspoons, housed in a famous old inn, with a sensible mix of old and new in various seating areas in an overall 'L'-shape around the two-part bar counter. Really good selection of real ales from mostly local breweries, including four from Nottingham, three from Belvoir and the Portland Porter from Welbeck Abbey (£2.50).

Real Ale Ray left this review about Trent Bridge Inn (JD Wetherspoon)

This is definitely one of the best Spoons I've visited. It's tastefully decorated and very comfy. This large pub has lots of different seating areas and staff are helpful and friendly. There were 10 ales on offer, I went for the Black Hole Brewery Starry Night, which was excellent.

The Trent Bridge Inn is a large pub that is adjacent to trent bridge cricket ground and looks towards the very busy trent bridge.
This pub used to be an Ind Coope tied house and it has recently been taken over by Wetherspoons.
Once inside there is an L shaped bar facing and there are no pumps on the bar area that faces the main door,there is a small seating area to the right and two more seating areas to the left the one to the far left resembles a library,if you walk dowm into the main bar area there are about 13 pumps on the bar and only two of these were repeated there was a good choice of micro beers on the bar and a few local ones,once through this room there is a large room to the left and the toilets are on ground level which makes a change for Spoons.
I had a drink of Trent Bridge Ale which is brewed for the pub by Notingham Brewery and this was a very nice drink.
I think Wetherspoons have made a really good job doing this pub up, the pub had a very nice atmosphere and there was a choice of rooms to drink in and all these looked nice and comfortable.
