About the Pub

Friendly traditional roadside pub on the outskirts of Nottingham. Totally refurbished a few years ago to give a fresh open feel. Dominated by the bar, the L-shaped room has distinctive areas either side of the bar, which serves up to 6 beers, mainly National brands. Plush seating can be found in the dining area to the right, a raised area is to the left and a darts board is tucked away round the corner. A number of screens show varied sports. Child-friendly during meal times (up to 8pm, or 7pm weekends), there is a play area beyond the large rear outdoor seating area. Breakfast is served from 9am Friday and Saturday only.
