The Malt Shovel

1 Union Street, Beeston, Nottinghamshire, NG9 2LU In recent times The Malt Shovel has had something of a mixed reputation with a succession of different managers running the place with varying success. Now a new chapter has opened, with the pub coming under the joint management of the nearby Commercial Inn. On the bar you’ll…

The Hop Pole

Address :  2 High Road, Beeston, Nottingham NG9 4AE While much of the rest of Beeston and Chilwell has modernised and turned to the high end market, the Hop Pole does what it’s always done best – simple, honest service and good beer. A snug front bar makes way to a longer, open room at the…

Totally Tapped

Address : 23 Chilwell Rd, Beeston, Nottingham NG9 1EH Established in 2014, the Totally Brewed brewery has firmly established itself for producing a wide range of highly tasty craft beers, and Totally Tapped was – as the name suggests – its first tap bar.

The garden – or rather covered outdoor…

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…

The Star Inn

Address : 22 Middle Street, Beeston, NG9 1FX. If a beer festival lasted forever, it’d look a bit like the Star. 17 hand pulls line the two ample main bars, and if they ever have fewer than eight working, you’ll get an apologetic look from the staff. The website has a whole page detailing the…

The Crown

Address : 20 Church Street, Beeston, NG9 1FY Whenever you see a big pub chain name outside a building, it can fill you with fear. However, Everards has pretty much left The Crown to its own devices – and it’s not difficult to see why. Around a dozen handpulls on the bar are full of…
