On the southern side of the Old Market Square with the tram lines and tram stop situated right outside the modern styled frontage, this is about as central as it gets in the city, although it’s not the biggest of the collection of Spoons in Nottingham. The airy open front of the building gives way to the bar and then a low ceiling rear area, all of which are linked in an open plan setting, and all of which offer a convivial experience. I’ve been in here on a couple of occasions and the rotating ale selection has been decent.

A large, modern, busy and bustling Wetherspoon pub with a reasonable selection of beers. Joseph Else was principal of the Nottingham School of Art from 1929 to 1939 and he, together with three former students, sculpted the lions that stand guard over the entrance to the Council House (city hall) and the figures in the pediment so it’s appropriate that this pub on the Council House square should be named after him. It looks as if it may have once been a cinema or a department store with – as in so many Wetherspoon’s places like this – a high-ceilinged foyer and staircase at the front and an area at the back with a lower ceiling. In recognition of the eponymous sculptor there’s a panel on the wall showing photos of him at work and a mural opposite the bar. Apart from this the place has that sort of community centre feel sometimes found in Wetherspoon’s places during the daytime. A much better Wetherspoon’s in the city centre, in my view, is the Roebuck just a stone’s throw away. Having said that, the Joseph Else has 10 taps, a few interesting local beers were available when we were there and the service was friendly. (Visited 13 July 2012).
