Regularly come here for drinks and good, not got a bad thing to say to be honest, staff are always friendly and attentive, service with a smile! Also I'll love the ambiance and style of the bat as well, to many more visits.

First time to this pub. Good variety of choice on the menu with vegetarian options. Great prices for good food. I had the pork Normandy which was delicious! Friendly staff and not too long to wait for the food to arrive.

We're a family of friends who run clubs & bars that we like to spend time in. Right from the beginning we had a mission to create 'the best village pub in the city'. A place where regardless of age or gender, people could come together to relax and have fun. So, in 2003, we opened the Orange tree in Nottingham city centre. And because people enjoyed it as much as we did, we've carried on opening more bars and clubs with the very same ethos driving everything we do; from the way we look and feel, to the music we play, the cocktails we mix and the food we serve. We now how have a broad choice of venues across the East Midlands, each one just that little bit different to the next, just the way we like them. We hope you do too.
