The Pottle

Address : 1 Stoney Street, Beeston, NG9 2LA.


The “blues” have now been officially erased from what is now simply called “The Pottle Micropub”, with a neatly stripped back version of its previous incarnation. Competing in a town already thriving with great bars is a challenge, but The Pottle has a sufficiently different offer.

A wide range of cask ales and craft beers are rotated on the bar, though precisely where your pint comes from depends on where it’s stored this week; most come straight from the cask or through a simple tap – so generally speaking, don’t expect a head on your drink.

Covid regulations mean that live music has been also been stripped back, though occasional events are still held. But on the whole this is a pub where you can have a conversation without too much interruption.

Music? Regular gigs have now been replaced with occasional events, but these days it’s mainly just background tunes – though there is a piano!

Food? Make do with the crisps and nuts – it leaves more room for the beer.

People? Proper beer lovers, male students attempting to impress their girlfriends with their knowledge of beer, and occasional dogs lying on the floor (who’ve also probably tried the beer)

Opinion? It’s a micro pub, so don’t even think of trying to swing a cat. Squeeze yourself in next to the other customers, make new friends.
