What a gem!
Located in the dark backstreets of Carrington, a short stroll off the busy Mansfield road is The Gladstone.
The smallish pubs has two similar sized seating areas either side of the bar, one more cushioned for a more lounge type feel the other very much more gritty and "bar" orientated. The bar has six superbly well kept real ales. on my last visit they had London Pride (£3.40) Timothy aylor Landlord (£3.50) oakham Bishops Farewell (£3.50) Castle Rock Harvest Pale (£3.15) Nottingham Extra Pale Ale (£3.15) and Oakham Scarlett macaw (£3.40) al well as being supported by keg offerings from Carling, becks, Guinness, staropramen and Stowford press. My Bishops Farewell was in tip top shape, although a little on the steep side when the beer is this well kept you don't begrudge the extra costs quite as much.
A fantastic find with a warm atmosphere and award winning beer garden. The Gladstone is well worth the five minute stroll when around the Carringtion area and located just a ten minute walk from Sherwood.

*Update* called in here last week (10th November 2015) and had a pint of oakham ales Scarlet macaw (£3.50) which was in fantastic condition and was one of the best pints I have tried in a long time, well worth trying, especially in this fantastic boozer.

**January 2017
Still the best kept beer by a mile! Prices all rose by 10p so still the most expensive by a long shot but still a secret hidden gem.

A late Victorian terraced pub, with beer garden, which is named after the former Prime Minister of the period. It is of three storeys, a generally in plain brick, but has a decorative string course, stone lintels, pedimented entrance and the most unusual feature - the heavy brick mullions. You enter a small vestibule, where the former outdoor may have been. It has two rooms, served by a central island serving bar. Off to the left there is the lounge.It is in green, with blue bench seats and carpet. Lots of brass is dotted about, as well as small objects in cabinets. Off to the right is the bar. This room is in red and white, with a black and red tile floor and brown bench seats. The TV wasn't on, but the radio was. The room has a sport them, with tennis racquets, fishing rods and a bar billiard table on the wall! Lots of sport pictures are mounted too. There is a dart board and trophy cabinet. The service was friendly and the place clearly populated by locals - also with a friendly feel. Beer; usual tap stuff, with Oakham's Inferno and Scarlet Macaw, London Pride, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Brewster's Decadence and a decent Castle Rock Harvest Pale Ale on handpull. A great, a pretty much unaltered back-street pub - and definitely worth finding out if in the area. I am sure I will be back.

This is a good traditional pub and is well worth a visit. Once through the main door you have a choice of either the lounge or bar side, either rooms were equally as good as the other. We took the bar side and were impressed with the red and black floor tiles and the original cornice work. There were six ales on handpump, I went for the Notts Brewery Rock Bitter, which was spot on.
