About the Pub

The main access to this unusually shaped pub is via a staircase at the front of the building, but there is also access from the adjacent paved 'ampitheatre'. Formerly a hospital, then an Indian restaurant, it is now a comfortable pub, renowned for its good quality food and real ales. Seating is varied, with a raised area around part of the circumference of the building. The artwork on display includes a ceiling mural (painted by Richard Green), and several nudes. Six handpumps dispense beers, some from local micros.

Historic Interest

The Roundhouse is located in a circular Victorian hospital ward which opened in 1900 as part of Nottingham General Hospital's Jubliee Wing. The General Hospital was first opened in September 1782 on what was then called Derry Hill. Two of the original subscribers to the hospital were the industrialist Sir Richard Arkwright and Robert Nightingale, the uncle of Florence. The hospital closed in 1992 (University of Nottingham). Nearby, King Charles I is credited with starting the English Civil War by raising his standard on the 22nd August 1642. The subsequent historical "appreciation" of the moment has led to the area being re-named Standard Hill. The Roundhouse is in Nottingham City Council's Castle Conservation Area.
