About the Pub

Overlooked by Nottingham Castle, this pub has a large frontage, but is quite narrow inside. Inside, the d├ęcor gives it a modern feel, but viewed from the outside the pub is clearly much older. It actually dates from 1883, and was designed by Watson Fothergill, hence the name. Both meals and beers are aimed at the more discerning customer, with prices reflected in the quality. The handpumps dispense mainly local microbrewery beers. The pub opens from 8.00am in the summer months (June-August).

Historic Interest

Named for its designer, Watson Fothergill, perhaps the most iconic and distinctive of Nottingham's Victorian architects. Fothergill's is a Grade II Listed Building (No. 1246812), is part of the same listing as the Old Castle Inn and is located in Nottingham City Council's Castle Conservation Area. Public house, cafe, shops and offices. 1883 by Watson Fothergill. Altered late C20. Red brick, with ashlar and blue brick dressings and gabled and hipped plain tile roofs. Various stylized stacks. Domestic Revival style. EXTERIOR: 2 and 3 storeys plus attics; 14 x 5 windows. Windows are mainly wooden framed cross casements with segmental heads.
