As of October 2015, this pub acts as the brewery tap for Totally Brewed brewery. According to staff at the Lincolshire Poacher the pub is still owned by Castle Rock and the beers are split between Castle Rock & Totally Brewed so I donít know exactly what the arrangements are. Unfortunately, we didnít have time to visit to explore further. Iíve upped my scores slightly to refelect these developments.

Visited in 2012. Thought Iíd put all my reviews from that trip in but obviously I hadnít so apologies for the lateness.
The first impression is the striking blue tiled exterior in a not-so-exciting area of the city. Old fashioned sort of place, fairly basic but comfortable, with a homely lived-in feel. Six cask beers - mainly Castle Rock with a couple of guests and a handful of Belgian bottles. Thereís lots of Castle Rock to be found around the city so youíll probably not find anything here that you couldnít get elsewhere. Worth a look in if passing but not a destination in itself.

A Castle Rock pub with six hand pumps and about ten bottles from Belgium and BrewDog.
The Newshouse is an interesting looking blue tiled building at the London Road end of Canal Street. Thereís a BBC building at the end of the road and I wondered whether this was where the name came from, as thereís an old fashioned microphone logo etched onto a large mirror in one of the two rooms. It was quiet when we visited on a Sunday evening but the service was friendly and efficient and the beers were in good condition. (Visited 15 July 2012).

The Newshouse is a two-room pub near Nottingham railway station and the tram terminus. Winner of Nottingham CAMRA Pub of the Year 2009, It has six cask-conditioned beers, including at least two from the Castle Rock brewery, always in excellent condition. In addition to this, it sells a small selection of bottled Belgian beers. Service from Bob and Carol Fairclough and their staff is always very friendly and attentive. The pub can be oddly quiet on Friday and Saturday nights; it seems to be most popular during the week, especially for the Thursday night quiz.
