Address : 20 Church Street, Beeston, NG9 1FY
Whenever you see a big pub chain name outside a building, it can fill you with fear. However, Everards has pretty much left The Crown to its own devices – and it’s not difficult to see why.
Around a dozen handpulls on the bar are full of ever rotating real ales, as a visit to the pub’s website will testify. There’s also an ample selection of ciders and a growing nod to craft beers.
The interior is considered by Camra to be “historically important” – because of the wonderful snug and even smaller “confessional” booth, where three’s a crowd. The huge car park/beer garden often has visiting street food vendors and guest breweries in the small outdoor bar area.
Music? Rarely. This is a place to have a proper conversation about beer. There a twice weekly quiz though.
Food? Cobs, crisps, pork pies. What’s not to like?
People? Students, locals and visitors who make a special journey.
Opinion? You might have already guessed; this is a NottsNight favourite. We’ve never known the place to be off form. But its popularity means you may be queuing for quite some time. Get in line, relax – it’ll be worth the wait.
