The Salutation Inn

Address : 75 Maid Marian Way, Nottingham, NG1 7AA.   One of three pubs laying claim to be Nottingham’s oldest. the Sal boasts the date 1240 above the door. Or maybe that’s the opening time. Whatever it is, the Salutation offers plenty of history. And rock music. Lots of rock music. Although bands usually play upstairs, it’s…

Castle Trail

On this trail you’ll never be too far away from Nottingham Castle itself and the Robin Hood statue. Down the years, this district has been a bit hit and miss for watering holes, but some relatively recent additions and rebrands make this compact area well worth a few hours. Choose a sunny afternoon or a…

The Malt Cross

Sadly, as of 18th July 2018, The Malt Cross has ceased trading. We’re gutted, as this was a real NottsNight favourite – a genuine Victorian Music Hall in the heart of the city centre. We’ll keep you posted with any developments. Address : 16 St James’ Street, Nottingham, NG1 6FG. In Victorian times, this place was…

Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem

  Address : Brewhouse Yard, Castle Road, Nottingham, NG1, 6AD.   “The Oldest inn in England” boasts the permanently whitewashed exterior of the Trip. And in the past, we’ve regrettably had pints here that taste like they’re from the 12th Century. But those days seem to be gone, and you’ll usually find a healthy rotation of…

The Ned Ludd

  Address : 27 Friar Lane, Nottingham, NG1 6DA. The Ned Ludd has now been passed from the hands of the Nottingham Brewery to another company – its third operator in just a couple of years. But while in some cases this may bring uncertainty, the quality here has thankfully been maintained. On the bar you’ll…

Fothergill’s

  Address : 5-7 Castle Road, Nottingham, NG1 6AA A sunkissed terrace directly opposite the Robin Hood Statue. You could hardly get more “Nottingham” if you dressed in green tights and changed your name to Marian. Fothergill’s (or Watson Fothergill’s to be proper and polite) is the rich cousin of The Castle next door. And herein lies the…

The Roundhouse

  Address : Royal Standard Place, Nottingham, NG1 6FS If you look up to the ceiling whilst drinking your pint here, you’ll see amazing painted features, just one of the attractions in this, the former Nottingham General Hospital site. The bar – situated on the first floor – was actually once the maternity ward, while the…

The Crafty Crow

  Address : 102 Friar Lane, Nottingham, NG1 6EB Tap bars are sometimes a dilemma in terms of choice – or lack of. But at the Crafty Crow the Magpie Brewery doesn’t always dominate proceedings. There’s a healthy selection of real ales and craft beers – and clear labels to tell you exactly what you’re getting The…

The Castle

  Address : 1 Castle Road, Nottingham, NG1 6AA. You can’t argue with this location, bang opposite the entrance to Nottingham Castle, this pub stands out from the crowd. Or does it? It has an impressive building – but so does Fothergill’s  next door (owned by the same company. It serves good beer – but so does…
