Apparently the oldest pub in Britain dating from 1189 IIRC. An absolute must visit as itís so close to the Castle Grounds and literally right under the Castle Hill, many of the walls being encarved in Stone. Pretty well aerated also for such an old place. Just the setup gives it a very warm, middle-age feel that easily manages to remain authentic. Friendly, enthusiast staff seems to feel privileged from their work environment. obviously, the patrons will often be tourists, but itís precisely that: an attraction that happens to serve a few well-conditioned real ales inclusing their own Olde trip that I must confess not being a fan of.

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), thereís 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 wasnít 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).

See haddonsmanís rating for the nitty gritty. Food was great. H&H is hard for me to find, so I was quite pleased. Loved the food. Watch out for the locals - they may try to fleece a tourist at the old ring entertainment.

This is historical. Looks fabulous outside. And inside ainít bad either. Comfy and pleasant. A bit touristic. Might be even more in the summer time. Excellent service. 8 casks. Definitely worth visiting.

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 theyíve seen lots of conversations and pints. The lunch specials werenít 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.

Iíve been in many times over the past 40 years - I guess the good thing is that the palce hasnít changed. Unfortunately itís still overrun with tourists who would not recognise a good beer even if it was poured over their heads. Now it has been swalled up by GK it is good to see that there are still some independent beers on offer - the Burton Bridge Top Dog Stout was excellent. The place is still a must for any serious pubgoer, just filter out the foriegn accents at the bar!

Very nice place. Supposedly to be the odlest pub in the world. About the 12th Century. They have a whole selection of beers from Hardyís and Hansonís brewery and other little breweries. They have a ring game and the staff is friendly.

Another must see on haddonsmans "unofficial conducted tour of Nottingham" back in December 2006. This was a good time to visit as we got to sample the last of the Nottingham brewed Kimberley beers before GK swallowed up the brewery and transferred production to Suffolk. Obviouly touristy but as it was the middle of Winter only the hardcore were in evidence and those stone walls and ceilings cut in to the castle rock are pretty impressive, you really could be stepping back to the Middle Ages in here. The Olde Trip was on good form at the time but we were equally impressed by the Winter seasonal which was also on offer.

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 rockís pretty good at blocking mobile phone signals too!

You have to have a pint in this pub at least once if youíre 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.
