The poppy and pint is situated in the upmarket suburb of lady by close to West Bridge ford in a former British legion club. This pub follows the classic Castle rock formula of a great choice of reasonably priced beer in nice surroundings. This is slightly different to most of their pus being a former club and has a lot of similarities with the Willowbrook pub in Gedling, too a former working man’s club. Upon entering the bar is to the right and stretches along most of the pubs front wall. The pub is mostly hard wood throughout with some raised areas and the odd screen dotted around but only showing major events. There is also a nice outside patio drinking area with large tables that is great for soaking up the sun. There are many hand pulls on the bar as well as some expensive fizzy craft beers such as Wild River by Fullers for £4.50 a pint! Due to its location this is the most expensive Castle rock outlet as the people who live around are not short of a few quid but still on average with other comparable pubs so nothing too outrageous. There were a good few castle rock beers on the 12 hand pulls as you would expect with as Black gold (£2.90) Preservation (£3.10) harvest pale and Screech owl being noted and Guests Including London Pride (£3.40) and as well as local offerings from Lincoln Green and Magpie. The Black gold while being 30p more than usual for a Castle rock outlet was superb and a lovely pint and still competitively priced. A great pub to seek out to find a great choice of well-kept beers in a nice surrounding. It isn’t the most cosy of places due to its size and layout and can feel a bit airy and lacking in atmosphere when not busy but this is due to the nature of the building and Castle rock have done a nice job regardless. The Willowbrook suffers from the same problem but I think this wins overall, well worth a visit.

Enjoyed our visit yesterday with a great selection of Castle Rock beers plus guests. It is also a cafe bar, and is large enough inside with area to suit everyone. Function room, folk night and a well looked after bowling green outside so serves the community well. Friendly staff keeping good ales.

About a ten minute walk after visiting the Stratford Haven. Had a detailed map drawn courtesy of the local postie at the Stratford, so didn't get lost finding our way. The pub has a large interior and was formerly a British Legion Club. 12 ales on offer, I went for the Lincoln Green Camraderie and Fullers Traitors Gate, both were excellent.

A great addition to the Castle Rock stable. This pub has been specifically re-designed with the community in mind, especially mummies with children. We popped in after a session at the Nottingham beer festival in October and were surprised at the quality of the fit and finish. Loads of good beer on tap and loads of varied food available. BTW, the map is not quite right, the pub is down a short drive from the location shown, but it is sign posted.

The Poppy and Pint is in a very leafy area of West Bridgeford and it is Castle Rocks latest pub to open it is also probably their largest pub,the pub was converted from an old British legion club.
Once inside there was a smallish room to the left which was carpeted and looked like it was set out for diners this room was empty,the main room is very large and long it narrows in the middle and is a lot wider at each end,this room had a fairly low ceiling but the pub still seemed quite airy,the main bars flooring was wood and there were different types of seating but mostly small tables and chairs,i think the far end of the pub was for people with children.
The bar is very long and there were 12 handpumps on it 6 of these beers were from Castle Rock 3 were guest beers from micro brewerys and the other beers were Batemans XB and London Pride one pump was unclipped.
I had a drink of Castle Rock Sherrifs Tipple and this was a really nice drink and at a reasonable price £2.30 the other beers were more expensive and the most expensive was a guest beer called Trawler Boys and this was £2.90.
There is a bowling green to the rear of the pub and tennis courts at the side.
I quite liked this pub and it is a good addition to the West Bridgeford drinking scene.
