“Wow! What a gem! Nottingham Brewery’s tap which serves as an award-winning, cosy welcoming two-roomed local, with traditional decor and furnishings, friendly staff and locals. The beer is naturally at its finest and freshest, and the enthusiasm and flair of the brewer is as sharp as the faultless cellarmanship. Two milds are included in the cask range, and some interesting kegs are available in the name of diversity. A tasty food menu is offered at lunchtime, to suit most if not all tastes. This pub remains unspoilt and is well worth the effort of finding. Be prepared to spend far more time than you intended. To steal a phrase from the 2004 CAMRA Good Beer Guide that prompted my first visit at the time: A real pub for real people. 2004, 2018 it has stood the test of time.“

“Visited in 2012. Thought I’d put all my reviews from that trip in but obviously I hadn’t so apologies for the lateness. A bit off the beaten track and not in the most attractive part of Nottingham, the Plough is a sizeable 1930s pub but with a slightly basic feel. None the worse for that though. Acts as the brewey tap for Nottingham brewery which is out the back. Service was very friendly and we got an impromptu look around the brewery from the landlady. Obviously the main draw is the Nottingham beers, which took up the majority of the pumps with the odd duests. Not surprisingly they were in tip top condition. Whether you’ll find anything that isn’t available elsewhere in town is debatable as Nottngham beers are quite widely available. I did on this occasion though. Worth a visit.“

“Two roomed pub with a central bar, few big table and a beer garden. 6 of own beers + 1 guest. Food. But no menu which drives me nuts trying to remember what was said.“

The Nottingham brewery tap.

The Plough was very quiet when we visited on a Saturday evening but that was all to the good because we got chatting to Melanie, the licensee, who showed us round the brewery. It’s in a very neat and tidy barn at the back of the pub and, given that Nottingham Brewery beers are so widely available around the city, I was amazed at how small it is. They brew five days a week using equipment bought second hand from Cheltenham. They also grind their own malt and there’s a pleasant smell permeating the barn.

The pub itself has two 1930s style rooms which are cosy and comfortable. There are nine hand pumps serving mainly but not exclusively their own beers. All the ones we tried were, as Allbertane says below, in tip top condition – fresh, cold and tasty.

“The Plough is the brewery tap for the Nottingham brewery. It’s a pleasant pub, tucked away on a backstreet in the slightly seedy Radford neighbourhood, near the Jubilee Campus of Nottingham University. They always have nearly the full range of Nottingham beers available and in tip-top condition, as well as a couple of guest beers. In addition, they sell EPA in bottles by the case and (if pre-ordered) takeaway polypins of any Nottingham beers. The atmosphere is comfortable and convivial, although it can be a bit quiet, even on Friday and Saturday nights, but it’s well worth a visit.“
