Will Larter left this review about The Royal Children

I added this one to my list of pubs to do on a two day visit to Nottingham, after reading about the change of ownership, clientele and beer policy (below). It was gone 10pm when I arrived, following Luton Town's goalless draw at the City Ground. Some heavy metal was on the sound system, but it was otherwise quiet, with just two customers sitting at the bar and chatting with the young manager. There were four beers on the bar, all from local breweries (see photo) - Black Iris, Hollow Stone (Shipstones) and two from Totally Brewed. I tried three in quick succession: all were in very good condition, though the Black Iris Snake Eyes was not to my taste. I noted that three Dancing Duck beers were ready to go on next. The manager was happy to join in the conversation, and mentioned that this pub is now owned by the same company that has Six Barrel Drafthouse in the city centre, and its sister pub near the Victoria shopping centre.

Big big changes here, no zombies! someone has cleared out the undead, put in decent beer, started giving decent service, and the place is busy with normal people. Now a pub worthy of the name.

No frills corner pub, bench seating, wooden chairs and tables, mixed floor treatments. “Salt of the earth” type punters (or scrotes) rather than the zombies mentioned. Screens and constant music from jukebox. Bloody awful beer, they only had Bombardier on the two banks of five but obviously no one drinks it as it was not exactly vinegar but very infected with something nasty, vinegar fly I’d guess. Unsigned one way system in operation, I chose the wrong door to much mirth of staff and punters; the beer gods were obviously trying to tell me something.
