The Peacock is something of a Nottingham institution among the trade union movement; its upstairs room having been the venue for many a revolutionary council. But downstairs, it’s now branded as a “Victorian Pub and Vegan Kitchen” – claiming to serve Nottingham’s first all-vegan pub menu.

The Victorian theme is certainly in abundance too – the parlour room is decked out with benches, armchairs and real fire which will make you so comfortable, you won’t want to get up. And you won’t have to, as bells on the walls will summon a member of staff to bring you drinks.

On the bar are three house ales and a further three on rotation. Craft beers and ciders are also on offer.

Music? the main bar has twin decks for occasional DJ sessions. Nothing too loud though.

Food? Yep. And it’s all vegan.

People? Left leaning intellects, grown up drinkers and shoppers waiting for a bus when it’s raining. An eclectic crowd.

Opinion? The 2016 relaunch of the Peacock has been more a case of evolution than revolution, which is probably a good thing – the history of this bar, and it’s architecture deserve to be preserved. Unlike the toilets, which really deserve to be condemned.
