Address : 27 Friar Lane, Nottingham, NG1 6DA.
The Ned Ludd has now been passed from the hands of the Nottingham Brewery to another company – its third operator in just a couple of years. But while in some cases this may bring uncertainty, the quality here has thankfully been maintained.
On the bar you’ll find at least three handpulls and a growing collection of craft beers. If the main bar gets too busy, there’s an additional room upstairs.
The new management seem to be keen on good service, despite the relative inexperience of some of the staff. There’s a good menu of pub grub staples and platters for sharing.
Music? Background tunes are pumped out at a reasonably subtle volume, though on our last visit the playlist seemed a bit thin.
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 ranging from the fairly respectable to those who’d be better off in Yate’s (and have probably already been there all day).
Opinion? There are better bars within easy walking distance of this place, so they need to stay ahead of the game.
