About the Pub

Built on the site of the old Judge's bakery on Mapperley Top in 2007, the conversion retains the old bakery ovens in a wall in a back room. There is plenty of memorabilia adorning the walls from closed breweries, especially local ones and framed awards. Supervised children are allowed until 9pm. The single bar in the entrance room boasts 12 handpumps with Castle Rock, guest beers including mild and a cider. There is also an extensive foreign beer list. Home cooked food varies frequently so look for the specials board. The chef's speciality is Caribbean Chicken from a secret family recipe. A curry/quiz night is held Mondays. Dogs welcome in main bar area only.

Historic Interest

The Bread & Bitter is a former mid-20th century bakery once belonging to C.W. Judge & Son. The bakery closed in 1991 and was converted 16 years later into a public house by Castle Rock. The opening ceremony was presided over by Barrie Judge, a member of the original baking family, on the 5th December 2007. The ovens remain as part of the interior and there are a number of very unusual stained glass features using flattened bottles. The Bread & Bitter was registered as an Asset of Community Value on the 27th July 2016 by Gedling Borough Council after being nominted by the Nottingham Branch of CAMRA. As at November 2017, the leasehold for the Bread & Bitter (NT446512) was held by Tynemill Limited (Reg. No. 1211426).
