Hidden away in Nottingham City Centre, not far from the theatre, this is a lovely small watering hole, pretty much a speakeasy. Fine array of real and craft ales, plus excellent options for cider and spirits. Board games are provided and encouraged. Warm welcome with...More

Stepped in for a drink the other night. Lovely setup, felt like home walking in. Good thing this is not around the corner from my house because I would be there every night.

It can be difficult to find a micropub open at lunchtime in midweek, but I struck lucky here, because it was Thursday. The freckled lady in charge told me she only really opens early on Thursdays because she's in for stocking work, etc. I'd tried...More
