The Hockley Rebel

Address : 14 Broad St, Nottingham NG1 3AJ. After years serving up all manner of overpriced nonsense, the former Rum Bar (one of its many incarnations) has redeemed itself in its latest guise as The Hockley Rebel. And like many rebellious characters, this one doesn’t give a fig about some of its more pretentious neighbours….

Newark Needs You!

We’re dead proud of our NottsNight network. You might have already noticed our NOTTS GOTS – where we feature pubs that are a little bit out of town, and usually don’t have anywhere else decent nearby. Now, though, we’re expanding the network even further – and our latest project includes Newark, with the intention of…

The Brickyard – Carlton

Address : 1a Standhill Road, Carlton, Nottingham, NG4 1JL Once upon a time, a walk up Carlton Hill would end in the inevitable disappointment of an old estate pub serving nothing better than John Smiths. Or worse still – Worthington Creamflow. But with the arrival of The Brickyard, all that should thankfully be consigned to history….

Curious Tavern/Lost Caves

Address : George Street, Hockley, Nottingham, NG1 3BP This isn’t a typical NottsNight venue, and yes, you may find drinks in test tubes served by hipsters wearing unicorn hide aprons. But bear with, because there are signs of redemption. Well, a few. The Curious Tavern is part of a small group of venues in Nottingham whose…

Uncovering Nottingham’s Hidden Treasures

More details have been revealed for a huge festival celebrating Nottingham’s caves. A massive 830 caves have now been mapped across the city by resident archaeologist Scott Lomax, and this years event – from 11th-13th May – will include the chance to explore some brand new locations. It’s the perfect companion to our own lovely…

The Head of Steam

Address : 7 High Pavement, Nottingham, NG1 1HF When a bar gets taken over by a brewery, with the promise of a full revamp, our NottsNight eyes roll upwards, complete with a long sigh, and a muttered “bleddy hell, here we go again”. However, we’re pleasantly surprised with the efforts of Hartlepool-based Cameron’s – because this…

Notts TV Pub of the Month

At NottsNight, we’re proud to bring you loads of details about pubs which are local to you. So it only seemed proper that we got on board with another proudly local brand to share some of our lovely reviews. That’s why we’ve partnered to bring you the Notts TV Pub of The Month. On the final…

The Overdraught

Address : 11-15 Alfreton Road, Nottingham, NG7 3JE The Overdraught comes from the same people who brought you Totally Tapped in Beeston. But the venue couldn’t be any more different. A former bank (and more recently, a fancy dress shop), the owners have gone to town on the decor, hanging star shaped lights from the ceilings and fitting…

Nottingham to host Caves Festival

Nottingham’s always had a great underground scene, and this coming May there’s a chance to explore even more of it. The City Council and partners are to stage a Caves Festival from Friday 11-Sunday 13 May, which give you more than a good enough excuse to check out the NottsNight Underground Trail. Designed towards the end…

Doctor’s Orders, Carrington

Address : 351 Mansfield Road, Nottingham, NG5 2DA. It was Nottingham’s first ever micropub. Set in a former pharmacy, “prescriptions” were dispensed from a hatch in the cosy living-room sized bar. But that was then, and today the Doctor’s Orders – under the management of the Magpie Brewery – has expanded in size, making excellent use of the…

NottsNight launches #FirstyFebruary

While many people have done exactly the right thing by partaking in Dry January, we thought that by the end of the month, folk would be bleddy well parched and ready for a beer, which is why we’re designating the second month of 2018 #FirstyFebruary. Every day, NottsNight will tweet a totally different pub for…

Canal Trail – 2018 Edition

The Nottingham and Beeston Canal was once an important part of the city’s trade, transporting materials for industry and goods like lace and tobacco onward to the rest of the country and worldwide. On this trail, you can explore the city’s heritage and soak in a few pints in traditional pubs. Continue reading or download a…

Overdraught Opening Date Revised

Totally Brewed have announced that their new Canning Circus pub – The Overdraught – will now open on Friday 16th February. NottsNight had originally been told that the bar would open during the second week of January. Then, a Facebook post announced the official opening as Friday, 2nd February. Now, the owners say : “For…

The Barley Twist

Address : 91 Carrington Street, Nottingham, NG1 7FE. When Castle Rock announced their fourth new pub within a stone’s throw of three of its others, we wondered if they’d gone mad. However, the Barley Twist – housed in a former sweet shop – has a twist of its own, concentrating on craft beer and wines. Real…

BeerHeadZ

Address : Cabman’s  Shelter, 1a Queen’s  Road, Nottingham, NG2 3AS   The micropub business in Nottingham is booming right now, and the latest to open in a new wave of outlets is BeerHeadz – a Newark based enterprise concentrating on the good stuff. And the location couldn’t be better. A former Cabbie’s shelter in on 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,…

The Bread and Bitter, Mapperley

Address : 153-155 Woodthorpe Drive, Mapperley Top, Nottingham. NG3 5JL You might think that a district that has three pubs and two bistro bars would mean a clamour for your custom. But when it comes to Mapperley Top, the rest have a fair bit of work to do to match the quality of the Bread…
