The Good, The Bad and the Drunk


Address : 78 Derby Road, Nottingham, NG1 5FD



Micropubs are often a labour of love for their owners, and 2021 sees a new addition to Canning Circus in the form of The Good, The Bad and The Drunk, which apparently is a playful take on this bar’s new owners – who hope to revive business after the demise of the Room With a Brew.

As a freehouse, you can expect to see a wide rotation of real ales on the bars, including some adventurous additions on our first visit in the shape of Rattler – a strong Cornish cider which you’ll know all about the next day.

Covid restrictions aside, the interior is relatively large for a micropub, so there’s room to swing a cat and enjoy a decent pint.


Music?  No – you can hear yourself (and everyone else) talk here.

Food? Eat before your come – it’s sausage rolls and pork pies.

Customers? A proper boozer’s pub. Older blokes and women who like their ale mix with students who realise there’s more to life than horrible lager.

Opinion? Canning Circus thrives on its variety, and a micropub sits well in what is an extremely competitive area. We hope the locals – and visitors – recognise this – because if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.
