For those of us old enough to remember, this section of High Pavement used to house a true Nottingham classic. But the County Tavern has long gone, and in its place is the Cock and Hoop. Part of the Lace Market Hotel complex, the bar has had something of a rollercoaster history.

Despite appearances, it can sometimes fall short on delivering the goods. At times, the presence of a single bar tender on a busy Saturday night is certainly frustrating. On offer are up to three real ales, plus a good bottle selection. Worth the wait – eventually.

On the plus side, the food here is cooked in the same kitchen as the much posher (and pricier) Merchants Restaurant.

Music? Muzak, actually. Enough to keep you entertained through some of the deadly silences during quiet times here.

Food? A bar menu providing good value and occasional deals combining a main course and a drink, deals on house burgers etc.

Customers? A mix of hotel residents, after work business types and those who just want something a bit less rowdy.

Opinion? A relaxed atmosphere and a good bolt hole away from the melee of the Lace Market strip along High Pavement. Despite being part of the hotel, don’t expect any lock ins.
