The King Billy

Address : Eyre Street, Sneinton, Nottingham, NG2 4RG.

King Billy

It’s often the case that the most unassuming backstreet boozer throw up the biggest surprises, and if you can drag yourself away from the big bright lights of Hockley. you’ll be rewarded with a pub that’s right at the heart of its neighbourhood.

On the bar you’ll find up to six real ales – and usually a healthy choice in terms of strength and colour. You’ll also find a good selection of ciders and craft beers.

The large horseshoe shaped bar opens up into a cosy parlour room, and venture up either of the staircases to reach the pool room and the unexpected roof garden, lovingly decorated with plastic turf  and carved birds, with views of the nearby Bentinck Court tower block. Well, this is Sneinton, duck.

Music? You’ll find the occasional vinyl session or random accordion, kazoo and cello combo playing upstairs –  otherwise this is a place for a conversation.

Food? Feast your chops on countless pork scratchings or bacon fries. Or eat before you come.

People? Men. Women. Dogs. Babies. You can’t say this place isn’t diverse.

Opinion? The chances are you’ll be introduced to this place by a friend. If not, you’ll probably quickly make friends. This is a real boozy local, and despite a recent lick of paint, it retains true character.
