Enjoyed our visit to this pub with a decent selection of ales from interesting breweries. They also have a range of keg beers, canned and bottled beers and also ciders. We chose Beermats Matador ale which was fine.

Traditional looking place from the outside but inside is a very modern bar aimed at the younger market, live music enthusiasts and people who like Monty Python. The long single room is done in primary colours - blue, red and yellow. Live music stage at the rear with what looked like an upstairs seating mezzanine. Noted that there were phone charging points available at a number of the tables – excellent idea. Also a good back catalogue selection of Private Eyes Five cask at the bar; Dancing Duck Dark Drake (very good nick), Dark Star Partridge, Newark NPA (unimpressive quality), Cheeky Rascal V7 and Brewsters Marquis. Also some boxed cider, a good selection of craft keg and prominently displayed fridge items. Enthusiastic, if overly-familiar barman. Very quiet on my Sunday afternoon visit compared with a number of other places (guess this is more of an evening venue?). Pretty decent but I get the feeling I caught it at the wrong time to truly experience the experience.

As the name suggests The Flying Circus is Monty Python themed.
The interior is unexceptional and feels more like a bar than a traditional boozer although the array of beers available and listed behind the bar on neon boards is impressive.
Ten keg ales were listed with some stronger offers alongside various common and more unusual lagers.
The cask offer consisted of Dark Star Hophead, Purple Moose Glaswyn Ale which was fine if unexceptional, Falstaff Well to Hell - a mild this being May and Flying Circus Best Bitter.
Worth a visit especially if you're after a wide range of keg beers but less to go for on the cask front.
