Address : 1 Alfreton Road, Nottingham, NG7 3JE
The first time we discovered the Falcon, people were literally falling out of the front door – but in a good way. A private bank holiday party had snowballed into something much too big for this tiny venue. It’s not a micro-pub, but anything more than 25 customers creates a squeeze.
The current management seem to have judged the highly competitive Canning Circus market well – a good selection of rotating real ales – usually impeccably kept. There are some basic bar snacks, but nothing too fancy.
A real fire in the corner and a wood burner in the ever-so-snug make this a cosy place on a cold winter night.
Music? Some Morris Dancers invaded once during the summer, but don’t let that put you off.
Food? The website ambitiously boasts “better than the best” Sunday roast in Canning Circus. The rest of the week tends to be a bit on-off.
Customers? Older than some of the other bars around here, reminiscing over the huge old Shipstones sign in the snug.
Opinion? In many locations, the Falcon would be everything you ever wanted in a pub. But in Canning Circus it’ll always be the poorer cousin of the Sir John next door. However, it continues to offer good value and choice in a massively competitive market.
