A castle rock pub and one of the very best in Nottingham. 12 real ales available with London pride, harvest pale, elsie mo and screech owl always available along with another 2 or three from the castle rock range, the rest are all ever changing guests. The beers are always in good condition and have recently been reduced by 20-30p a pint due to castle rock scrapping their loyalty card. This means most beers are £3 or under with harvest pale £2.70, preservation £2.90, black gold £2.50 and sherrifs tipple £2.40. There guest beers are usually very exciting and recently featured Chiswick bitter, very un-exciting for many from the south but a rarity and a real treat for us further up.
All in all an excellent pub and by far the best pub on Mapperly top, only thing stopping this being a 10 is its bare eating side that is a bit plain and lifeless if you ever end up their when the bar area is too busy which can be often, but really I am picking this is an excellent pub and well with a visit. An 8.5

Now this is a pub worth countless revisits. I have been in this place numerous times despite me living in Leeds. It's a Castle Rock pub with the best selection of their beers I have seen and there are various guest beers on offer. As per usual, I had Screech Owl which was excellent. Get yourselves in there if you like decent beer.

We had received a good few recommendations to visit the Bread and Bitter and have to say we were not disappointed. This large Castle Rock pub had 12 handpumps offering a lot of good beer. A nice suprise was to find Jarrow Brewery Red Ellen, which slipped down nicely. Friendly bar staff here, and the customers were also friendly and chatty. Well worth a visit.

The Bread and Bitter was opened a couple of years ago and is in an old bakery it is in the middle of mapperley and behind the Plainsman pub once inside the floors are stone and there are several different drinking areas,this is a Castle Rock pub so i tried Harvest Pale which is a very good drink there was also about 8 other handpumps on the bar some castle Rock beers and other micro brewery beers. This pub is well worth finding and i think most real ale buffs would be very happy to have a few here i was.
