Great pub with an excellent choice of beers as described below. We tried a couple from Lincoln green and they were in good shape. I would definitely return.

The Sir John Borlace Warren or the “Borlace” is located next to the falcon at the top of Canning Circus and is the largest and has the grandest looking exterior of the pubs around Canning Circus. The pub is part part of the Project William scheme under the watch of Lincoln Green Brewery. Once inside the Bar bends around the left corner in a L shape. There a few different seating areas and snugs on different levels and the pub is furnished in a nice sophisticated manner which is in contrast to the traditional boozer décor of the Falcon, both are nice in their own ways. The beer selection is very good and comes in three distinct categories over the three sets of four hand pumps. One set is reserved for Lincoln green beers which on my visit were Marion (£2.90) Hood (£3.00) Archer (£3.00) and Quarterstaff (£3.20). The second set is reserved for four ever changing guest ales that on my visit consisted of Great Heck Black Jesus (£3.65) and Mercy (£3.10) one I failed to note and Everards Tiger (Always available due to the partnership agreement and (£3.40). This leaves the third set which is accompanied by a brewery of the week every week and showcases a selection of their beers on the four pumps. Unfortunately this is only at weekends so on my midweek visit these were unavailable. This still leaves 8 ales in the week to choose from instead of 12 which is still good going. The Hood was a well-kept pint and very enjoyable. Another great pub in Canning Circus and well worth a visit. The only downsides to this pub is that the robin hood and little john in Arnold is also a project William pub owned by Lincoln Green that edges it with it beer quality (Outstanding vs very good) and selection (it has up to twenty beers it can offer on hand pump at peak times and special occasions). That’s not to detract from how grand this pub is its just noting that their other example is a slightly better offering.

I was ordered to come here by the Landlord of the King William IV the other side of Nottingham and I'm really glad I didn't ignore his good advice. As of May this year it has become a Lincoln Green pub assisted by the Project William scheme run by the Eveerard's brewery. It's had a superb refurbishment retaining the multiple rooms, the old floor tiles as you enter and wooden floors.
The bar now has twelve hand pumps with on my visit six Lincoln Green beers, Everard's Tiger and five guests. The guests were Bank Top Bad To The Bone, Brightside Our Town, Raw Pacific Gem, Double Top Bad Boy and Conwy Welsh Pride. I went for the Lincoln Green Tuck Porter (£2.96) Which was superb. If you feel like moving on from the beer there is a cider wall with up to 10 ciders (7 on my visit) all priced at £3.50-£3.60. They also do a range of fifty whiskies and twenty gins.
I thought this was an excellent pub and my favourite of the Canning Circus four.
