The Bath Inn

Address : 1 Handel Street, Sneinton, Nottingham, NG3 1GF

Sneinton is fast becoming the go-to place for variety and choice when it comes to pubs, and the Bath Inn adds to a great pub crawl in these parts. Opened at the end of 2021, loads of work has been done on the interior – and it’s a far cry from it’s former incarnation as half pub, half chip shop.

On the bar, you’ll find up to four real ales which are frequently rotated. The owner knows a thing or two about running the cellar, and won’t put a beer on until it’s absolutely ready. There are a a few craft beers on taps and in cans, with a small selection of ciders.

The decor of the place is… interesting. Egyptian motifs and ornaments are all over the place, while above the bar is a striking 1950s pose of a woman diving into a swimming pool – a nod to the old Victoria swimming baths which were across the road.

Music? Background tunes with a distinctly jazz and soul vibe are on offer – and if you ask nicely, the owner might let you play the piano.

Food? Basic bar snacks like crisps and nuts – there are plenty of nearby takeaways to fill up on your way home

People? This is a real community pub, something Sneinton seems to do so well these days. But a growing number of punters make a special trip to visit.

Opinion? Opening up a new business post-Pandemic is definitely a risk – but the owner appears to have got the atmosphere spot on. It’s a welcoming place with a friendly crowd. Come early to guarantee a seat.
