A mild, stout or porter is always available as are real ciders, continental bottled beers and a fine selection of whiskies. Locally sourced ingredients are included in the meals. The pub features artwork celebrating it's twinning with In de Wildeman bar in Amsterdam (now for over 30 years). Live music is showcased on Wednesdays & Sundays. The pub comprises a main bar, comfy snug with button leather seating behind with wood panels, leading to a light and airy conservatory, and finally, an outside area with bespoke wooden beach huts and other seating.

Historic Interest

Originally an 1830s beerhouse at one time called the Old Grey Nag's Head, a name which may still be seen on some of the window glass. Formerly a Shipstones house, in 1989 the premises next door were acquired and the expanded pub reopened as the Lincolnshire Poacher (Whitworth 2010). In 1868, it was a beerhouse under publican J. Upton. Located in Nottingham City Council's Arboretum Conservation Area. Cave cellars measure 8m x 5m and are referenced MNU 977 and BGS Mc13.
