A brilliant Watson Fothergill designed listed building at the side of the main road into Nottingham city from the the north. Unfortunately the inside does not share the same Victorian features and is a very average punch Taverns type drab worn interior. On my Saturday night visit there were eight hand pulls at either end of the bar that ran along the length of the main room with a subsequent room to the right that has been knocked through to make one large drinking area. Beers available were Sharps Atlantic (£3.20), Castle Rock Harvest pale (£3), Bombadadier (£3.20) and Cairngorm Brewery Black gold (£3.20). the black Gold was a well kept roasted Scottish dark ale at a reasonable price. The Pale and Bombadier are regulars but i believe the the Atlantic along with the black gold change.

This pub has a community feel to it, void of the glitz of the city it feels like a locals pub i the city and thus does get a few rougher characters but noting too bad, mainly just regular local drinkers. Because of the well kept reasonably priced ale i would consider popping in for a pint again but on Saturdays they play muusic too loud in the evening so would probably visit at a quieter time.

The Rose of England is a grand looking pub that was built by Watson Fothergill.
The pub had a name change in the 80s and was called the Yorker for a while then it was Firkinised,it is nice to see it with its original name again.
Once inside there is a smaller than you would expect single L shaped room,the bar faces on entry,the seating is comfy bench type to the left in two bays with normal tables and chairs elsewhere,the room is bare boarded.
On my recent visit there were six real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Cross Bay Halo which went down very well,the other beers were Castle Rock Harvest Pale,Shipstones Gold Star,Bombardier and one from Flack Manor.
The pub was quite busy on my Saturday afternoon visit with as usual a good mixed bunch in.
Decent background music was playing and there was a few real Ciders on a stillage near the entrance.
I was quite happy having a drink in this pub while waiting for a bus.

The Rose and Crown is an attractive Victorian pub built as the brewery tap for the original Nottingham Brewery back in 1898. It was built by local architect Watson Fothergill whose gothic influences can be seen in the wonderful dark wood and red brick exterior and its impressive first floor bay windows. It is the only remaining example of a pub designed by Fothergill after the Black Boy Hotel was demolished. The pub has been through a few guises in the past, trading under names such as The Yorker, City Alehouse and Filly & Firkin, but a 2002 refurb saw it rightly return to its original name.
Entering through the corner door, with its lovely wooden porch, you find yourself in a decent sized L shaped room with banquette seating running around the perimeter and standard chairs elsewhere. Along the front of the pub there are three alcoves which may possibly represent the locations of three separate rooms in a former layout. Each alcove is carpeted and the windows behind the banquettes have etched glass bearing the pub’s name. A hatchway between two of the alcoves has been filled with a fish tank. There was a good lunchtime crowd in when I visited, mostly an older clientele enjoying food from the classic pub grub menu where main meals are priced around £6.00. Music was playing throughout my stay and the place had been decorated with all sorts of novelty Halloween tat, so when I went to pick up a newspaper from the rack on the wall, I turned round to find I was, rather embarrassingly, trailing a load of fake cobweb behind me. I believe there is a second bar upstairs which has a stage for live music, but I didn’t get a look myself.
Plenty of hand pumps on the bar, but most were doubled up and at least one was hidden under a werewolf arm. This meant just the four ales to pick from – Wells Bombardier, Castle Rock Harvest Pale, Arundel Trident and Greene King Abbot Ale. The Harvest Pale was in good shape and the barman was very friendly and welcoming.
Perhaps the pub’s fine exterior raises expectations too high, but I was a little underwhelmed by both the interior and the ale selection. It’s a friendly enough place and seems popular with diners but it didn’t quite do enough to make me want to rush back.
