A fantastic real ale pub located just out of the city center in a rougher pedestrian area. Dont let this put you off as inside you are made very welcome by the landlord who keeps seven very well kept ales (mainly pale hoppy beers) Prices are very reasonable with Oakham Citra being £3.20, this is a regular alongside Oakham Bishops farewell. Dukeries. black iris and Thornbridge have also frequently featured and their is always a hand pulled real cider along side some lesser seen keg offerings such as Leffe and imported Lagers.

The only real bad point is the uncomfortable nature of the front seating area which is a little cramped and hard but i cannot comment on the rear of the pub which i presume has more/better and more comfortable seating. all in all its good beer guide selection is very much deserved and ifs absolutely worth a visit.

Set just off the eastern part of the city centre this is a traditional old pub with separate rooms. The front bar has the beer choices so I settled for that. This room was long and narrow with low tables & chairs and a cream tiled floor. It was good to see there were no bar stools leaving a clear view of the beers on offer, although having arrived just after 11:00 on a Saturday morning I was the only one in.
The landlord here is a beer enthusiast who clearly tends to stock beers he likes, almost entirely pale hoppy ones. I'm not complaining!
There are nine hand pumps with one devoted to Old Rosie cider. Beers were Oakham Bishop's Farewell, Citra & Green Hop IPA, Dukeries De Lovetot, Black Iris Bleeding Heart & Snake Eyes, Glentworth Citrus Sun and Falstaff Rosa Bonheur,
I went for the Citrus Sun (£3.00) and Snake Eyes (2.90) both of which were pale and hoppy and went down a treat.
This was an excellent start to my day in Nottingham and is deservedly GBG 2015 listed.

A fairly short walk from the Lace Market part of town, this is a cracking traditional Victorian boozer with a slightly opened out two bar interior. The pub is focussed around a nice dark wood centrally positioned servery, surrounded by a number of distinctly separate areas. The front bar has tiled flooring, white walls and several small round tables around the perimeter, served by the unusual sight of alternate light and dark wood chairs. A row of traditional pewter mugs hang from the bar canopy and the room has been enlivened with various Victorian era paintings and some decorative touches such as the light fixtures and several mirrors. To the right of the bar there is a seating area with half panelled walls in a black and red colour scheme and from here you can access a cosy side room with some comfortable looking seating and what might be described as comparatively modern art and décor. The second bar to the rear is carpeted and offers a good amount of seating in slightly comfier surrounds than the front bar area. Some marvellous paintings fill the walls alongside clocks, mirrors and other such appropriate items that enhance the traditional feel of the room. Stairs apparently lead up to a pool and darts room as well as a roof terrace of all things, which all presumably helps broaden the pub's appeal a little.
On entering you are immediately confronted by a fine row of hand pumps, which on this visit were offering Oakham Bishop's Farewell, Inferno and Citra, Shiny Wrench, Brewster's Hophead, Falstaff Escher, Dukeries Furnival and Oldershaw Posh Blonde, as well as Weston's Old Rosie cider. Keg options included another Shiny brew, Leffe and a few mainstream brands. I had a magnificent pint of the Hophead served to me by a very friendly barman who was busying himself with the production of sausage rolls which were offered around to grateful punters for feedback.
This is a great little pub that is slightly out of the way compared to the city's other fine ale houses, making it a bit awkward to easily incorporate into a crawl but marking it out as the must-do pub on this side of town. I loved the beer and ambiance in here and very much look forward to a return visit.
