River and South Trail

Around the River Trent and just beyond you can find a great selection of pubs. This trail doesn’t fit into the traditional pattern of a single pub crawl, but thanks to public transport connections you can mix and match as you wish.

The Ruddington Arms

Address : 56 Wilford Road, Ruddington, Nottingham, NG11 6EQ. The key to operating in a competitive market is to offer something different. The Ruddington Arms does just that, combining all the great elements of a traditional pub with upmarket dining, local coffees and sweet and savoury snacks. To some, that might sound a bit “posh” –…

The Victoria Tavern

Address : 40 Wilford Road, Ruddington, Nottingham, NG11 6EQ. The best pubs are often those that keep things simple. And that appears to be the secret of success for this great little village pub. The Victoria doesn’t pretend to be something it isn’t, and the customers seem to like it. On the bar you’ll find at…

The Frame Breakers

Address : High Street, Ruddington, Nottinghamshire, NG11 6DT Forget Robin Hood, the Frame Breakers of Nottinghamshire were the real rebels – and in 2015 the former Bricklayers Arms changed its name to honour this piece of significant local history. You can learn more about that at the Framework Knitters Museum in the village. Some mourned the end of the…

The Trent Navigation

Address : 17 Meadow Lane, Nottingham, NG2 3HS. On your first visit, the Trent Navigation may well test your own navigation skills. Nestled between Notts County’s Meadow Lane ground and a sea of industrial units, it’d be all too easy to think you’re taken a very bad wrong turn. If you’re coming from London Road,…

Trent Bridge Inn

Address : 2 Radcliffe Road, West Bridgford, Nottingham, NG2 6AA   To date, this is the only NottsNight pub more commonly known just by its initials. Mind you, there’s still time for the hidden gem of the County Unity Northern Tavern to make an entrance… The “world renowned” TBI was taken over a few years…

Brewhouse and Kitchen

  Address :  Trent Bridge, Nottingham, NG2 2GS The Brewhouse and Kitchen has now firmly established itself as a great addition to the Trent Bridge area, and a far cry from this venue’s many previous and often dubious incarnations. Craft beer is brewed on site, and on the bar you’ll usually find at least three…

The Stratford Haven

Address : 2 Stratford Road, West Bridgford, NG2 6BA. A welcome relief from the strip of middle class nonsense of Central Avenue, the Stratford is yet another example of what Castle Rock does best : pubs for drinkers. The long bar snakes around to a large seating area offering plenty of room for a pint…

The Test Match

Address : Gordon Square, West Bridgford, NG2 5LP It’s worth the trip past the wine bars of Bridgford to find this place tucked away next to a really good chippy. This is a Greene King house, so expect plenty of standard furnishings – but also some pretty impressive artwork and architecture. The front bar features…

The Embankment

Address : 282 Arkwright Street, Nottingham, NG2 2GR Up until 2015, The Embankment was something of a museum piece – formerly the Boots Social Club in desperate need of some love and attention. Step forward Castle Rock brewery, who spent a pretty penny on reviving this magnificent old building into a drinking centre of excellence….
