About the Pub

Named after the standing stone in nearby Stapleford that is believed to have been deposited 200 million years ago and possibly used by ancient civilisations for worship or celebration. A large open bar with distinct areas of high seating and low tables and booths more suited for dining. Cask ales remain largely from national/regional breweries as with all Ember Inns.

Historic Interest

The Hemlock Stone opened on the 24th April 1959, to a design proposed by Cecil Howitt and Partners in January 1957 for the Home Brewery Co. Ltd and approved in February 1957. This is an "L"-shaped pub typical of the late 1950s but rather larger than usual with very high pitched roofs. The South facing lounge has a large entrance hall leading into it from the outer hall by the door - perhaps a vestige of the similar plan found at Howitt's Rose in Bilborough and other public houses with assembly halls. The modern-day dining room is in the former public bar and there has been some breaking through internally. The scheme includes a pergola leading from French doors in the lounge, which appears to have gone.It also shows a "site for a skittle alley". The building was re-vamped in July 2007. The exterior, main elements of the interior and adjoining garage survive. The interior fittings are all modern and the building adapted as a restaurant. The current pergola is just possibly the former skittle alley if this were built on a slightly different site to that shown, of which one wall and the stub of another survive (Elain Harwood / Historic England). The Hemlock Stone was registered as an Asset of Community Value on the 26th May 2016, nominated by the Nottingham Branch of CAMRA. As at November 2017, the leasehold of the Hemlock Stone (NT457965) was held by ORCHID PUBS & DINING LIMITED (Reg. No. 6754332).
