Lurking in a corner of an alley of a main street, it’s a bar with beer but not a pub like place. The main floor has a counter with four slightly submerged pulls and a couple of t-bars, wines and spirits behind. Tasteful decor in traditional red over brown wainscotting although all with a modern upmarket twist. Very traditional furniture with tall bentwood stools. Sporty but artistic decor. There’s space upstairs and downstairs.

Bar to middle with all the ales displayed on the wall. There were five real ales and ten craft type offerings which were expensive. Don't think I'd return but it is certainly worth a visit.

The Herbert Kilpin is a new pub/bar located down a small alleyway and is next door to the “craft “beer bar Junkyard. It is hard to find if you do not know where you are going as it is not heavily advertised. Once you enter the bar is to the left with high tables and stool against the outside window and some more scattered seating. The pub is in a modern style with hard wood floors and has the exposed brick/lots of metal and lighter colour scheme. Upstairs is much nicer and has been kitted out really well with nice warm carpets and better seating with some really nice sofas. The pub is really arm and if you can grab a sofa like we did is actually a really nice modern place to sit and have a drink. I usually don’t take to well to modern bars but the upstairs here is very warm and welcoming and a very nice place to sit and have a drink. Owned by the same people as the Junkyard the Herbert kilpin has a much better selection of cask beer (junkyard has none). There were five pumps on the bar with one unclipped and one featuring the permanent Kilpin ale brewed by black Iris brewery (£3.70) . Of the three guests two were from the \harbour Brewing company, I failed to note one of these but the other was their Nicaraguan coffee stout (£3.90) and Horncastle Brewery’s Liliths trust (£3.70) The Horncastle beer was a very well kept beer and most enjoyable. This was a nice find once we got a seat upstairs. The clientele were a bit on the hipster scale and the downstairs is not really the kind of place I like but was much more impressed with the upstairs, much more relaxing and more comfortable to sit inn. I would visit again if I could get a spot upstairs but they do charge very high prices for Nottingham and I doubt I would continue paying if it gets any higher, really is the top end for the city centre.
