Totally Tapped

Address : Chilwell High Rd, Beeston, Nottingham NG9 1EH


It’s all changed for this venue – literally. In 2023, the Totally Brewed company decided to stop brewing beers, but it did want to retain a craft beer pub. So they moved – lock, stock and a few new barrels, to the opposite side of Beeston High Road into new roomier premises.

Despite now actually having room to swing a cat, this is still very much a micropub with a smallish footprint, and the same great selection of craft beers on cask, keg and in bottles. And swinging cats would be ill advised, for this bar is extremely popular with dogs who drag their owners along for a burdensome pint.

A large blackboard lists the ever changing menu of beers, while out the back is a small beer garden which has been nicely set out to catch the sun when it shines.

Music? No need for anything in a place this small. An Ipod may be playing somewhere, but the conversation here is more than enough.

Food? If you want to eat, head into Beeston where there’s a lovely Wetherspoons.

People? Craft beer and ale lovers squeeze their often ample frames through the door, while bicycles and beard oils are left outside.

Opinion? This is a great little boozer, blurring the definitions between “craft” and cask. Be prepared to get cosy if you want to sit down behind the narrow and often crowded tables.

Getting here : Trent Barton Indigo or NCT Orang Line, NET Trams towards Toton Lane, all to Beeston Interchange or Chilwell High Road, then a 5-10 minute walk
