If you enjoy pubs then the Trip should be visited if in Nottingham for the unusual architecture. Beer choice is less worthy of praise. Visited 07 Dec.

This is no doubt a tourist destination. The offering of beers is nothing special but the main reason to come here is the atmosphere. Stop in after touring the caves and castle for some food and to tick Greene King casks.

The low ceiling rooms feel as if they’ve seen lots of conversations and pints. The lunch specials weren’t terribly priced but did feel as if they could have been about £0.50 cheaper for what you got. Still, duck in here before making your way across town towards Brewdog and the other pubs.

One of the coolest pubs in the UK. Play ring the bull and drink some great real ales. A must stop place if you are int he neighborhood.

Reputedly the oldest pub in England and, as a result, something of a tourist trap. The Olde Trip is built into the caves under the castle and has a warren of rooms upstairs and down, including a couple roughly hewn out of the rock. In the ward room (presumably once some sort of prison), there’s a ship hanging from the ceiling, a game involving a horn on a string which can be swung to hit a battered copper plate on the wall (those mediaeval knights certainly knew how to enjoy themselves!) and a nice brick fireplace unfortunately lit not with real coals but fake ones. It ought to be fabulous but I found it cold, draughty and somehow lacking in atmosphere. Mid Friday evening in July it wasn’t doing much trade apart from a small party of foreign tourists eating their dinner in silence. There are eight hand pumps, mainly Greene King and Nottingham Brewery, and the service was efficient if perfunctory. (Last visited 13 July 2012).

BeerViking  (71) Brentford, England | February 27, 2012
Worth a visit just to see the rock-cut rooms, but it is a total tourist trap, complete with naff ornaments and legends. The ale is well kept, and despite being a GK house there were at least three guests on when we visited, but you can get beer as well kept in many other places in town. Food is at tourist prices and quite variable - one of our roasts was reasonably generous and tender, the other was niggardly and dry. WiFi is available but only in some areas - the rock’s pretty good at blocking mobile phone signals too!

You have to have a pint in this pub at least once if you’re visiting Nottingham. Arguably one of the oldest pubs in Britain. Cool pub built into the caves below the castle. Cask ale is available but is fairly standard.

Great- its a pub in a cave. Worth coming to once for a look around. Beer is unfortunately from the Greene King range. Overpriced because the tourists come to it.

This is historical. Looks fabulous outside. And inside ain’t bad either. Comfy and pleasant. A bit touristic. Might be even more in the summer time. Excellent service. 8 casks. Definitely worth visiting.

Worth visiting purely for its purported historical importance, Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem is deservedly on CAMRA’s National Inventory of Historic Pub Interiors, even if it can’t prove it really dates from 1189. Unfortunately owned by Greene King, the Trip thankfully always serves at least two Nottingham Brewery beers (usually Rock Mild and EPA) and some guests.The beers are usually in fine condition, and the food is also of reasonably high quality. The pub is is a bit of a tourist trap, and visitors are often met by indifferent service by staff who presumably don’t have to rely on repeat business. All that said, it is definitely worth a visit, at least once.
