About the Pub

A 2014 refurbishment of an existing pub, the Crafty Crow is Magpie Brewery's first pub. Following on from the ethics of the brewery, self sufficiency abounds with UK sourced green energy and recycling, from wooden pallets to beer casks, all around, including some "out of sight" areas. Adoring metal self made finials adorn wooden balustrade posts and crows and birds appear throughout. Even the toilet facilities follow this, using ex keg fonts to dispense hot and cold water into sinks made from beer casks. Climbing the steps to the main entrance reveals a lobby furnished with unusual tables and comfortable seating. More steps lead up to the main bar area, which overlooks the entrance, with a raised seating area to the left, opposite this main bar area. Settles surround the wall and this is repeated on the area at the opposite side of the bar. A side entrance off Standard Hill is disabled friendly leading directly to the bar.

The central bar is hexagonal in shape and has 4 handpumps on both the two main sides. These dispense two Magpie beers, and six guests from other micro beers, both local and from further afield. One will always be vegan-friendly. A further 2 handpumps on each serve traditional cider. Facing the central side is a cannibalised Grundy conditioning tank which hosts 8 keg fonts to dispense micro craft beers and lagers. The only National brand you will find is the range of Fentimans soft drinks. Food is available, serving a range of local artisan snacks.

Historic Interest

Located in the former BZR Bar, this pub is named for the emblem of the local Magpie Brewery whose beers it sells. Perhaps also an allusion to Craft Beers? The Crafty Crow is located in Nottingham City Council's Castle Conservation Area. [Nottingham City Council; Radford & Park Ward / Nottingham South Parliamentary Constituency]
