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.
Om the bar you’ll find mainly craft beers, the usual being a perfectly quaffable Meantime IPA. Guest ales also make an occasional appearance. During non-Covid times there’s ample seating on the ground floor, plus extra space on the upper two floors, sometimes used as overflow areas when it gets busy.
The main front wall of the building was replaced in 2020 by some neat bifold doors, which have proved to be a good investment in allowing more outdoor seating and safe social distancing.
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
