About the Pub

Not apparent from the outside, or even the front bar decorated in plush dark woods, this pub is sunk deep into sandstone caves. This contrast offers a unique experience for both drinkers and diners of the high quality menu alike. Four beers are available. Inside, built in the 1980s but converted to include an open balcony in 2012. Live music is played every Thursday.

Historic Interest

Dates back to at least the 1860s when the caves were used to store and mature beer. In 1879 the Hand & Heart was a beer house under Wm. Thos. Fisher (Wright). The pub stopped brewing its own beers in 1933. By 1949, it was part of the Bradley's estate after which is became a Shipstones pub until the mid-1990s. The Hand & Heart is located in Nottingham City Council's Canning Circus Conservation Area. The cave cellars have been used as an air raid shelter and measure 11m x 20m.
