Brew Shed (Bar)
108 CAROLGATE
“A small, friendly locals’ bar very much on the model of Beerheadz, with four casks, six kegs and no macros. There are only five tables plus three stools at the bar although I heard talk that they may be expanding. (Visited 19 October 2018).“

“A standard modern ‘spoons with the usual range plus a few extras which were on for their autumn festival. The staff were friendly and efficient although I did worry a little for my safety - there were signs on the patio warning of loose tiles on the roof of a gazebo which was very much in use; this in addition to a sign saying that shirts must be worn at all times. The mind boggles. (Visited 19 October 2018).“

“The Turk’s Head is almost directly opposite the Wetherspoons and it’s an attractive building in the “Brewer’s Tudor” style. It’s not really a beer destination but they have five casks and the pub is listed by CAMRA as being of historical importance on the basis of its original 1930s interior. (Visited 19 October 2018).“

“The Olde Sun Inn is opposite St Swithin’s church and it’s sort of olde worlde on the outside, less so inside. The clientele were mainly workmen swigging macros. Doom Bar was also available. (Visited 19 October 2018).“

“A very stylish upmarket place offering coffee, food and “craft beer”. They had two Pheasantry beers and a few kegs including Punk IPA but it’s more a place to enjoy a meal and maybe a glass of wine or a cocktail. (Visited 19 October 2018).“

Beerheadz (Bar)
3 TOWN HALL SQUARE
“Having really liked Beerheadz in Nottingham, I made the trip to Retford specifically to visit the original bar, which opened four years ago and now has branches in Grantham, Nottingham and Lincoln plus another one about to open in Melton Mowbray. From Nottingham, Retford was a two hour train trip (to cover all of 30 miles!) but it was well worth it. Retford has a nice market square and there’s an arch to the side of the town hall. Go through there and you’ll find Beerheadz tucked away on the left hand side. It’s quite small but has plenty of seating and it’s cosy and comfortable. The beer range, with five casks, four kegs and lots of bottles, is excellent and the service was very friendly. (Visited 19 October 2018).“

Ship Inn (Bar)
WHARF ROAD
“A nice enough pub just a stone’s throw from the Idle Valley Tap but with no beers of particular interest - mainly Batemans. (Visited 19 October 2018).“

“An old pub but modern inside and very nicely done. There’s also a sunny patio by the main road. The service was friendly and there was a good beer selection - about eight casks and six kegs with a mixture of their own beers and others’. The beer was in good condition. (Visited 19 October 2018).“

“A sports bar on the road from the station into town. It serves breakfast and is nice enough but it’s not a beer destination. (Visited 19 October 2018).“
