Address : 27 Friar Lane, Nottingham, NG1 6DA.
The area around Old Market Square has a large collection of pubs – sadly many of them don’t make the NottsNight grade. So it’s good to see sanctuary in the form of the Ned Ludd.
Now under new management, the windows you see in our picture (above) have now been replaced with large bifold doors, allowing easy outdoor access, and a cooling alfresco feel inside – all of which helps to mantain safe social distancing. There’s good selection of handpulls on the bar, including a choice of four real ale and a growing choice of craft beers.
Recent additions include newly refurbished function rooms on the first and second floors, one with a Peaky Blinder theme – if that’s your kind of thing.
Music? Background tunes are pumped out at a reasonably subtle volume – a good choice of retro music to accompany the conversation.
Food? A menu of pub favourites, with a couple of special offers (eg : pie and a pint, burger night) midweek.
People? A city centre crowd means there are patrons of all ages, shapes and sizes – sometimes stumbling their way to or from the less desirable venues around here.
Opinion? The Ned Ludd has undergone several changes of ownership since it opened. The present management have made a good effort and generally provide friendly customer service
