New brew promises to be a scream

A brand new ale is being launched to celebrate a quarter of a century of Nottingham’s original ghost walk. “Screaming Isabella” is named after one of the legendary tales often told during the weekly guided walks which begin most Saturday nights from Ye Olde Trip To Jersusalem. Nottingham Ghost Walk owner Simon Unsworth says : ““We…

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…

Canning Circus Trail – 2018 Edition

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. Continue reading or Download a PDF copy of…

The Malt Cross

Address : 16 St James’ Street, Nottingham, NG1 6FG. Summer 2018 saw dark days for the Malt Cross, which suddenly ceased trading.

Langtry’s

Address : 4 South Sherwood Street, Nottingham, NG1 4BY. Langtry’s, the Lillie Langtry, The Langtry – we wish this place would make up its mind on social media. But whatever it’s called, it’s had a makeover. Though actually, you’d hardly notice. Which is entirely a good thing. In the deep depths of history, also known…

The Roundhouse

  Address : Royal Standard Place, Nottingham, NG1 6FS There’s a good rule of thumb in Nottingham when it comes to history – “look up and you will see it”. And that couldn’t be truer than in the Roundhouse – whose decorative ceiling was once seen by many a new mum – because this once was…

The Kean’s Head

Address: 46 St Mary’s Gate, Nottingham, NG1 1QA “Bleddy hell – were you born in a barn?!”… might well be a catchphrase for the Kean’s. Not because it’s a bad pub – but it’s somewhat sticky front door can create an icy blast, even in the summer. A good thing, then, that you’ll usually get…

The Pitcher and Piano

 Address : Unitarian Church, High Pavement, Nottingham, NG1 1HN Since the late 1990s this former church (and Lace Museum) has gone through several phases. When it first opened it had the “oh wow!” factor, before descending into a terrible meat market with bad crowd control and ridiculous drinks menus (with prices to boot). At one stage…

The Hand and Heart

Address : 65-67 Derby Road, Nottingham, NG1 5BA. 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 your alternative. Back in…
