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).

Nice little pub. Not an inspiring selection on cask when I visited, but what we tried was well conditioned. Good selection of bottles in the fridge, many Belgian, German and some Flying Dog, Goose Island, Anchor and Brooklyn. Didnít try the food but it looked good honest homecooked pub grub. Well worth a visit if your in the area.

The small one-roomed Keanís Head has always been one of the best pubs in Nottinghamís Lace Market district, as recognised by a CAMRA Pub of Excellence award. With a recent change in management, it is already improving. The six cask-conditioned beers (which often feature Castle Rockís monthly wildlife-themed beer and offerings from breweries like Newby Wyke, Crouch Vale, and BrewDog) are always in excellent condition. Possibly more interestingly, the Keanís has one of the best selections of bottled beers in Nottingham, featuring well-known but exceptional Belgian beers, a rotating selection from BrewDog, some of the better German bottled beers, and has recently added a small American selection. The food, although not as fancy as gastropub fare, is always very tasty indeed and good value, since you can earn loyalty points toward free beer by participating in the One Over the 8 scheme. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed, although it can become lively at weekends, when it attracts a very mixed crowd of people.
