About the Pub

Extensively refurbished in 2008, this large pub stands prominently at the junction of Woodthorpe Drive, Plains Road and Woodborough Road. Previously a split level, two roomed local, it has now been converted into a single level, single roomed pub that tries to cater for everyone. At one end, four plasma screens blend into the walls and show sports. Pillars help the room pass seamlessly to the other end which is more restaurant in appearance, but without the formality. Greene King beers dominate the corner of the bar with a couple of guests, often a local brand. Music nights are held most weekends, along with various charity events, sometimes featuring casino style games. Surrounding the outside seating area are various plants giving a secluded feel to the adjacent pavement and roadside. There is a covered smoking area at the rear with a small garden and car park.

Historic Interest

Formerly a Hardy & Hansons tied house, now Greene King. The Plainsman "opened in December 1969. It had murals depicting the Wild West by Ernest Bottomley, former senior art lecturer at the Manchester Polytechnic (Wright and Curtis, p.67). A split-level, two-roomed local, it was expensively converted into a single-level, ‘L’-shaped single-roomed pub in 2008." [Elain Harwood / Historic England]. [Gedling Borough Council; Porchester Ward / Nottinghamshire County Council; Arnold South Division / Gedling Parliamentary Constituency].
