About the Pub

A real ale Art Deco gem just 2 minutes away from the rail station and brewery tap for the adjacent Castle Rock Brewery. Twelve handpumps serve a minimum of 7 of the Castle Rock range, with some guests and the recently-expanded range of ciders. The outside seating area features floral displays in summer. Hot food served all week. A tasting tray of 6 thirds of CR beers is available. Brewery tours (by advance booking) are operated Monday to Saturday and end in Golding's Room, which opened in 2011.

Historic Interest

An Art Deco pub built in 1937 as the Grove Tavern on the site of an earlier pub of the same name. This establishment has had a number of name changes from the Miami Bar to Ziggy's Bar (1988), the Grove Tavern (again), Tom Hoskin's (1992) before becoming the Vat and Fiddle. The current name a cheeky reference to the nearby offices of HM Revenue and Customs (Whitworth 2010). [Nottingham City Council; Bridge Ward / Nottingham South Parliamentary Constituency]
