Alex Conway left this review about Inn for a Penny

Inn for a penny is a large roadside pub at the top end of burton road. It is all knocked through now with a long central bar as you enter with rooms banding round both sides. The decor is a bit none descript with a mixture of hard wooden floors and carpets and is a bit chain like but in a more old fashioned/tatty sort of way. The pub caters for many types with a large dining menu and lots of sports screens. There were Six hand pulls on the bar but only three were badged and these were Abbot, Ruddles and a Greene king seasonal called Barmy Army. I plunged for a Ruddles that to be fair was kept pretty well ( more so than I have ever had in any wetherspoons) but it cost £3.30, Id of preferwd to pay £1.89 in a spoons tbf. We sat by the window on large wooden posing tables before contemplating our next pint. The pub was reasonably busy on a Thursday evening, much more so that the far better Vollo down the road that serves better beer cheaper prices so I guess you can say this has a more homely local feel to it. With a more interesting beer selection this could be a pretty decent boozer as they keep the beer pretty well but the absence of anything interesting, the out of the way nature for Nottingham and the basic decor means this pub is distinctively average. If in the area I wouldn’t avoided it like the plague but it’s really nothing special. Distinctly average in almost every way.

This pub was knocked about in the early 80s and it has one large room with different drinking areas,there are quite a few tables at the front.This used to be a Shipstones tied house.
