About the Pub

Community local enjoying views over the neighbouring countryside. The comfortable lounge area is suited for dining and the pub boasts its own resident chef. A smaller bar to the side has a TV screen, and at the far end the pool table is located. Popular with walkers, the pub was formerly a Hardys & Hansons pub and Greene King sold it on 6th January 2016, and it is now a genuine free house.

Historic Interest

The Gardeners Inn has an entry on Nottinghamshire County Council's Historic Environment Record (HER) No. MNT27727. In 2020, Broxtowe Borough Council inexplicably approved planning application 20/00298/FUL which gave consent for the construction of 3 detached houses on the pub footprint, next to the pub. The Gardeners Inn was registered as an Asset of Community Value on 20th September 2016, nominated by Nottingham CAMRA, which expired on the 19th September 2021. Nottingham CAMRA renominated the pub in the autumn of 2021. On the 21st November 2021, Broxtowe Borough Council rejected the nomination (Ref. RA/001859). Whilst Broxtowe agreed that the Gardeners Inn met the requirements of an Asset of Community Value, the fact that the owners had advised the Council that they did not wish to continue to operate a pub was sufficient to reject the nomination on the grounds that it was not "realistic to think that there is a time in the next five years when there could be non-ancillary use of the building or other land that would further the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community". This was despite there having been no planning consent to authorise a change of use. Nottingham CAMRA raised a Stage 1 Complaint (No. 656316), which Broxtowe rejected (6th December 2021). Presumably, the owners intend to redevelop the site. The Gardeners Inn opened in May 1959. "The plans by William Blair ARIBA of Burton House, Burton Road, Derby for Hardy’s, dated January 1958, are rather charmingly simplistic in style. It is an ‘L’-plan save that the lounge is still called a ‘smoke room’. The plans were approved in March 1958, but for a site on the corner of Awsworth and Newton’s lane previously occupied by allotments, rather than on the opposite side of the road and slightly south, as built. This plan is little altered, but the bars have Victorian fronts and the lounge bar/smoke room has been extended outwards to the south. A northwards extension replaces the off sales area and contains the pool table. There is a door so was this an early addition that included the off-sales?" (Elain Harwood / Historic England).
