About the Pub

Mapperley Top's first micropub, opened in September 2018. As the name suggests, music is showcased alongside the beer range, with music Wednesday, every other Saturday and a blues jam on Sundays. Beartown beers, in conjuction with Bear, the house dog, regularly feature. The small bar holds four handpumps. Unusual circular tables from large cable winds with inbuilt footrests, wooden benches and varied chairs, including high and low stools provide seating. Guitars adorn the walls with a "bottle clock" dominant on one. Wednesday is £3 a pint with music later. Small roadside outdoor seating area in the summer.
