This pub should never be described as Nottingham Central,it's a punishing uphill walk for at least 20 minutes,easier on the way down.
A very tradtional Castle Rock pub,with a solid boozer atmosphere and a cosy,authentic interior.To the left of the entrance is a bar room in two sections each with handpumps and it's own servery.There is lot of old brewery ephemera ,some metal advertising signs and a Wrigley chewing gum dispenser.Bench seating with some stools.Walking around the interior there is a small back corridor lounge while french windows lead to a long and winding beer garden.
On my trip the Castle Rock beers were Elsie Mo,Sherwood Stout,Harvest Pale and SIPA Simcoe while the guests were Burton Bridge Bitter,Nene Valley Hop Stash,Newby Wyke Orinso and Little Lights Turtles Have Short Legs,a very decent hazelnut MILD (NBSS 4).
Along with the VAT & Fiddle,these are the two Castle Rock pubs worth a visit when in the city,but watch out for the long hike here.The willingness the serve several guests is a big positive.Not too far from the Organ Grinder,which would still be my prefered option in this higher part of the city.

Located on the north of the city, a Castle Rock pub in ale house style. Multi roomed in tongue & groove with grubby cream above. Nine pulls with obviously Castle Rock beers predominating but a reasonable clutch of other breweries such as Black Iris, North Riding, and Shipstones. Madly large selection of Scotch whiskys. Lively, friendly atmosphere with a decent mixed bunch of locals. Only two staff on so they struggled (very well) with table service in a busy pub, otherwise all was running well.

Being Nottingham born and bread I know the city's pub selection like the back of my hand and must say that although there is some stiff competition the Lincolnshire poacher is my pick for the very bes pub in the city and I know a lot who would agree with me. The pub itself has everything form wooden seats and tables to comfy snugs as well as bright open patio seating, there really is so much going on for all types of drinkers. They have recently had a big refurbishment of the garden area, adding more seats and little huts with heating to protect you from the elements.

The drinks range is second to none with 13 hand pulls usually in order. Castle rock harvest pale, Elsie Mo, screech owl and Sherwood reserve tend to be the most frequent of the castle rock range with some of the others like black gold rotating. this pub also frequently has at least one batemans beer (usually xb or xxxB) I presume as a homage to its former owners. London Pride and Everards Tiger are also frequently feature. This leaves 7 hand pulls for guest beers that range from micro and national brewerys far and wide. all prices are very reasonable (all prices were recently reduced 20-30 p due to the removal of their loyalty card scheme), especially for castle rock beers with Harverst pale setting you back £2.70. guests usually range between £3 and £3.40 depending on strength.

Overall a cracking pub with great atmosphere and fantastic clientèle make this pub the stand out pub of Nottingham, so highly recommended, always my stop off when drinking around the city centre.
