About the Pub

Large pub comprising of three seperate rooms with two long alley skittles.

Historic Interest

The New Engne House was "opened by Shipstones in December 1969. The pub had a full-size horizontal steam engine dating from 1850 as a sign positioned behind a glass next to the pub lounge. The engine was built for a local colliery and then used by the brickworks that formerly occupied the site, but was removed in 1982 during a refurbishment of the pub and donated to Nottingham Industrial Museum. At the same time the pub was renamed The Steam Engine. In 1989 the pub changed names again and became known as The Thorn Bush. In 2015 it is known as the New Engine House, with flourishing pools and skittles. The plan of the main pub is a ā€˜Uā€™ shape, entered from the left-hand side where it appears like a typical ā€˜Lā€™ plan, with a small lounge to the left and a large public bar straight on (on two levels and perhaps later extended). Beyond the main bar is a second bar and kitchen, with behind that a separate room reached through double doors which contains the skittle alley." [Elain Harwood / Historic England]. [Gedling Borough Council; Carlton Hill Ward / Nottinghamshire County Council; Carlton West Division / Gedling Parliamentary Constituency]
