About the Pub

This famous historic pub is hewn out of the rock on which Nottingham castle stands. Previously known as the Pilgrim, no one knows for sure how long an inn has stood on this site. There are 4 bars and sitting rooms downstairs and two further rooms upstairs. One of these, the Rock Lounge, has a case containing the infamous Cursed Galleon; a number of people are reputed to have died after trying to clean it! The Museum Room has a tapestry depicting the history of Nottingham. The pub can get crowded, as it is very popular with tourists. For those feeling peckish the pub serves breakfast in the morning, and a large selection of starters, main meals and desserts until 8pm. Outside, there is a courtyard and a seated pavement area. The unusual game of 'ring the bull' is in the front bar. To be refurbished March 18 to include bars o/s & upstairs alomg wit a disabled toilet.

Historic Interest

The Olde Trip to Jerusalem is a Grade II listed building (No. 1271192) in Nottingham City Council's Castle Conservation Area. One of the City's iconic pubs, it is largely carved out of what used to be cheerfully known as Bunter Sandstone but has now been renamed rather depressingly as Mercian Mudstone! As the Pilgrim, once of a group of pubs in the extra-parochial Brewhouse Yard and which enjoyed a special status where illicit transactions were outside the jurisdiction of the town's law officers. In 1785, the Pilgrim was run by the Widow Footit (Harry Gill 1909 Transactions of the Thoroton Society XIII). "Early C17, with C18 and C19 additions. Partly timber-framed with brick nogging, and painted brick. Rear rooms in rock-hewn caves under the Castle Rock. Plain tile roofs with single ridge and side wall stacks. Rendered plinth. Central range, endwise to the street, with additions to left and right, forming a Z plan. EXTERIOR: central range has at the front a late C17 block, 2 storeys plus attics, with dentillated eaves and a shouldered coped gable. Yorkshire sash to ground floor, blank first floor, 3-light casement in gable. Right return, single bay, has a 6-panel door and 12-pane sashes. To right, a lower block, early C17, box framed, 2 storeys plus attics, 3 bays. To left, a 3-light casement. Above, a Yorkshire sash and a renewed casement, and above again, a raking dormer. Rear has similar casements. In the rear courtyard, a painted brick projection from the cliff face, with slate roof, corner stack and 3-light casement. To its left, a painted brick wall flush with the cliff face with a door under a canopy and a 3-light casement above. To right, a single storey projection, early C19, with 6-panel door, flanked to left by a tripartite sash. Above and behind, a 2-light casement set in the cliff face. To left of the centre, late C18 addition, 2 storeys. Irregular fenestration, with a segment-arched passageway to right, and a square glazing bar window above. INTERIOR has exposed span beams, one carried on a C19 cast-iron column. At the rear, several rock-hewn rooms at various levels, one with a conical roof. These may have been used for brewing.

(Historic England). The cave cellars measure 17m x 27m and include a cockpit and pillar. They appear to be the cellars of 2 adjoining establishments now knocked through into one.
