A Castle Rock pub with little CR beer on offer. It has a better craft than cask selection. The food selection is limited and the service slow (35 minutes for basic pub grub). And why pay £3.70 a pint for an average abv pale? I wonít be back.

Laid back and relaxed pub in the lace market area of Nottingham. It has a young, vibrant feel, easy paced. Seems to have had a recent make over from what I can remember. Unfortunately our food was quite disappointing, but otherwise the pub is worth a look.

Smallish place, two rooms. Six casks, six craft. Mellow, relaxed atmosphere on a Friday night. Mostly business people and young adults. Worth a look.

Tucked away in a quiet corner of nottingham, we came across this by accident! Iíve even lived in the city for a few years! Lovely little pub, fantastic selection, friendly staff, nice coffee! Great food!

Last visited in October 2014. Seemed to have had a bit of a makeover since I last visited in 2012 to give it rather more of a "cafe-bar" feel, but my memory may just be playing tricks. Still a comfortable and cosy spot. In the Lace Market area but on one of the quieter streets on the edge of it.
In common with some other Castle Rock pubs I noticed that the beer range had been revamped too. The cask range was more interesting and they had added a few solid "craft kegs" too - including Siren and Black Iris on this visit. Didnít look at the bottle list. Smaller range than Canalhouse but definitely worth a visit.
They seem to be putting some emphasis on decent food, but not such that it is dominant, but we didnít eat.

Very good Castle Rock pub on a quiet street in the Lace Market area. Six casks, 7-10 craft kegs and countless bottles offer everything a beer drinker could want. Castle Rock ales are always decent but itís easy to opt for the keg choices when they include superstars like Siren, To ōl, Beer Here and Partizan. An excellent choice in the self-appointed beer capital.

A quiet mind boggling selection of beer. Numerous cask offerings and a fantastic selection of top rate bottled beer. Packed out on my visit. I honk they do food but I was on my way for a meal.

Good selection of cask and other beer in a pub with modern decor but still cosy. Guest cask beers during our visit were from Newby Wyke & Dark Star. Visited 07 Dec

Nice Castle Rock pub, with a bar-style open plan layout. A nice, 20s/30s crowd of patrons. A few nice ales on, plus a crop of pleasant continental bottles. I had Rodenbach, which went down nice.

A nice Castle Rock pub with a comfortable, local feel. I liked the Keanís Head. Itís in a quiet street opposite St Maryís church and tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the Lacemarket. Weíd just come from Brewdog and the contrast couldnít have been starker Ė no bouncers on the door here! Nevertheless, the Keanís Head was quite busy too but it felt comfortable and relaxed. Thereís just one room, with orange tiles and tongue and groove walls. The age range was mixed, with no one trying to be hip. There are six taps offering, when we were there, three Castle Rock beers and three guests. (Visited 13 July 2012).
