Historic Interest

The Crusader was opened in mid-October 1984 by Hardys & Hansons. The public house is large, low and barn-like, with Saracen-style wallpaper and stained glass windows - it is named after Sir Gervase, a local knight who fell in the Third Crusade. The Nottingham Trader dated 17th October 1984 described the Chesterfield settees in the lounge as "quite an innovation". The public bar had space for pool and darts. The Notts & District Drinker (Vol. 2; No. 2) added that "pine woodwork is much in evidence throughout" (Elain Harwood / Historic England). [Nottingham City Council; Clifton South Ward / Nottingham South Parliamentary Constituency]
