Overdraught Opening Date Revealed

Totally Brewed have announced that their new Canning Circus micropub – The Overdraught – will open on Friday 2nd February. Although the building was most previously a fancy dress shop, the pub’s name refers to its previous incarnation as a bank. NottsNight understands the new owners have been working hard to reconfigure the old vaults…

Raglan Road

Address : 69 Derby Road, Nottingham, NG1 5BA. More from this area There aren’t many places where you can pee on Donald Trump’s face. At least legally. And when the Raglan Road added this hilarious gimmick to its urinals in 2017 it certainly got publicity. At NottsNight we tend to shy away from the brash and…

Canning Circus Trail

Canning Circus was once the industrial playground of Nottingham. Workers from Players and Raleigh would come in their thousands on payday. Today, many of those pubs have gone – but plenty still survive, supported by a vibrant neighbourhood of working professionals, students and migrants from across the world.

The Running Horse

Address : 16 Alfreton Road, Nottingham, NG7 3NG. More from this area In the days when Players and Raleigh ruled this district, the Running Horse was the place for live music. Long before Rock City was dreamt of, the Horse would be rammed to the rafters. Sadly, in recent years, it’s been open and closed by…

The Organ Grinder

Address : 21 Alfreton Road, NG7 3JE. More from this area The Blue Monkey Brewery has really established itself since launching in 2008, and the Organ Grinder was its first tap bar.

The Falcon Inn

  Address : 1 Alfreton Road, Nottingham, NG7 3JE More from this area The first time I discovered the Falcon, people were literally falling out of the front door – but in a good way. A private bank holiday party had snowballed into something much too big for this tiny venue. It’s not a micro-pub,…

The Hand and Heart

Address : 65-67 Derby Road, Nottingham, NG1 5BA. More from this area If you live in Nottingham, you will, of course, have visited the Trip To Jerusalem – the the pub carved into the side of Nottingham’s Castle Rock. But if you want the same cosy setting without the American tourists, the Hand and Heart is…

A Room With A Brew

Address : 78 Derby Road, Nottingham, NG1 5FD More from this area The problem with some micro pubs is that they’re, well, a bit too small. This might sound like stating the bloody obvious but if theirs no room to swing a cat, how are you supposed to safely deliver a pint to your mates?…

The Sir John Borlase Warren 

Address : 1 Ilkeston Road, Canning Circus, Nottingham, NG7 3GD. More from this area Legend has it that the founder of Wetherspoons – when at University in Nottingham – based his vision for pubs on this place. But don’t let that put you off. Because the Sir John is just about everything a ‘spoons isn’t….
