Address : 54 Canal Street, Nottingham, NG1 7EH.
Opened in 1895, Fellows has been a mainstay of waterside drinking for far longer than its upstart neighbour, the Canal House. But its suffered in recent years, closing down twice – which is never a good sign.
Now, the Bermondsey Pub Company – the trading name for Enterprise Inns – has taken back control, with a pretty basic but refreshing makeover. There are six real ales on offer, with an emphasis on local beers, along with a range of ciders and craft beers.
Overall, the place looks brighter, with a cleaner outdoor terrace and a few new fixtures and fittings. Like the old Fellows, there’s still an emphasis on big screen sport for major games.
Music? An in house sound system pumps out friendly tunes. We’ve not yet seen any details for live gigs.
Food? The new Enterprise Inns menu features pub grub classics, pizzas, light bites and sharing options. Though we’d rather stuff was served on “plates” rather than “crates”.
People? Pre match this can be a gathering point for Nottingham Forest fans. Otherwise its a real mix of all ages, shapes and sizes
Opinion? It’s early days yet. But the new management appear to have got their priorities right, focusing on good service. Staff are knowledgeable and attentive. Let’s hope that continues.
