About the Pub

Friendly local pub in Radford with a warm atmosphere. Pool, along with darts, and up to date games machines are available. Live entertainment on Saturday evenings.

Historic Interest

Named for the Victorian hero Colonel Frederick Gustavus Burnaby (1842-1885) who was killed at the Battle of Abu Klea whilst attempting to rescue a wounded comrade. Six foot four and twenty stone, he had a larger than life personality to match and was the inspiration for a number of contemporary paintings and written works, including Henry Newbolt's poem "Vitai Lampada". In 1889, the Colonel Burnaby was a fully licensed establishment under victualler Mrs M. Topham, Hartley Road then being called Outgang Lane (Wright). Re-named for a while as the Penny Farthing, this pub was once a Whitbread outlet. The Colonel Burnaby was registered as an Asset of Community Value on the 10th March 2016 and was nominated by the Nottingham Branch of CAMRA.
