Handy for the station. Tap room for the Castle Rock Brewery. I stared at the many hand pulls on offer. Like a man that stares at the menu in a chippy and eventually goes "fish and chips", I went for a perfect Harvest Pale.

Food menu limited to pub staples but good value and quickly served.

As described below, the brewery tap for the Castle Rock brewery. You really can't go wrong here with a choice of 13 beers. I made the mistake of not leaving much time before my train so I only tried one here but it was excellent. A must do for me if you are using the train station.

17/01/18 Still the original and best brewery tap in Nottingham. However with 13+ brewery's in town, each with a tap, it better keep an eye on the competition. Always the first and last on a Nottingham crawl, it's the law.

02/04/13 Castle Rocks tap is as you would expect excellent. I often call in before a Nottingham Rugby home match at Meadow lane and stock up on decent beer and a cheese cob or two. Always a full selection of Rock brews and quite often a limited edition that do not make it into the main supply chain of the brewery. One of Nottingham's best pubs by far and well worth putting on any crawl of the city.
