About the Pub

Refurbished in October 2013, adding plush seating and discreet booths that manage to balance both privacy with a social atmosphere. Images of Nottingham landmarks decorate the inside with the 'Secret Garden' to the left of the entrance. According to legend, condemned criminals were offered a last drink of Nottingham ale by the landlord when passing on their walk to the gallows.
