Last visited in October 2014. A historic and atmospheric pub just off the main square in Nottingham. There are a number of little rooms off the corridor leading to the larger, main bar at the back. Which is rather less atmospheric than the rest of the pub. Itís a Greene King pub but thereís a larger range (including their trial and "craft" beers), with more guests, than usual. Also, on this visit there was evidence that they had recently held a beer festival. Unfortunately it had finished and they had just dismantled the stillage. However (as with the Trip To Jerusalem - qv), it does indicate that Green King may be taking more of an interest in the beery side of things at thisd pub.
Definitely worth a look.

From the small frontage you would not imagine quite how big this pub really is, it goes a long way back, multiple rooms and corridors. There is a small bar at the front and a much larger one at the back with more beers available. A little more choice than many GK pubs, so really worth a look.

A nice pub in the centre of Nottingham. Better than I expected from a Greene king pub. Nice selection of bottled and cask beer.

An attractive old pub in central Nottingham.
The Bellís timeline of landlords - on the wall in the back bar - shows that it was looked after by the Jacksons for over a hundred years, from 1898 to 2002. In the ten years since then, possibly dating from the time that Greene King took over, itís had four different landlords.
At the front thereís a small cosy bar room with a low ceiling and I expected a crepuscular labyrinth of rooms at the back. I was surprised, then, to find that it opens out into a long, light(ish) hunting lodge style hall with wood panelled walls and a well, which can be viewed through a round window on the bar.
Itís comfortable, relaxed and quite nice with efficient (if not smiling) service.
There are 15 taps, although some of the beers were duplicated, and they serve their own beer (Bell Inn bitter brewed for them by Nottingham) as well as two or three other local ales.
