About the Pub

Tucked away on the edge of the village just past the church, this delightful red-brick local is a quiet pub, mercifully free of electronic machines, making the art of conversation a delight. A roaring coal fire greets you on cold winter nights. The bare brick and beamed bar is welcoming and dog-friendly.

Historic Interest

A nineteenth century beerhouse and shop premises now converted into a single public house (Ottewell 1990). Until quite recently it boasted a superb wall-painting advertisement promoting "Bass" on the side of the building overlooking the car park. Sadly, this has been overpainted by a poorly executed painting advertising the pub, which is already showing signs of peeling-off. Hopefully the underlying "Bass" advert may be reinstated and sympathetically restored in the future. Surviving Bass livery remains above the front door. The Woodlark was registered as an Asset of Community Value by Gedling Borough Council on the 29th November 2016, after being nominated by the Nottingham Branch of CAMRA. The Woodlark was part of a local name cluster with the former Woodlark beerhouse in Nottingham, which closed in the early 1900s and was the subject of a recent archaeological excavation. The Woodlark was a bird of Sherwood Forest and its melodious call may still be heard in springtime at the RSPB's Budby South Reserve near Mansfield. The Woodlark is in Gedling Borough Council's Lambley Conservation Area. The freehold (NT255165) has been held by the current owners since 25th April 1991.
