If it's cold then stay away from here because they have two pathetic heaters that do bugger all and three doors to create massive drafts, otherwise this is a cracking little pub. The staffare generally very well informed on what they are selling and the food is decent if a little unspectacular, but wht else do you expect for £5-8?
The beer selection is invariably decent although I must correct the previous reviewer because although the sign outside says Bateman's, and they do tend to stock a couple of Bateman's beers, this is actually a Castle Rock pub, and they stock plenty of their own beers. Unlike most places in Nottingham it is actually possible to get a good lager, ale or Belgian brew in here. The smoking garden is also well wind-protected, with plenty of tables and some shelter. Prices are good and if you like Castle Rock beers the loyalty cards are well worth collecting.
Pork scratchings are shit.

This is a well-known and popular pub on the Mansfield Road which runs north from Nottingham, about 1 mile from the city centre. Its main attraction is the ale. There are 10 hand-pumps serving cask-conditioned English-style ales and 1 other devoted to cider or perry. The basic range is supplied by Batemans, they offer the XXXB and the XB bitters pretty much all the time, and others in season. There is almost always Draft Bass and a mild ale on sale, and the other pumps are devoted to a changing range of guest beers.
Other beers on tap include Staropramen (Czech) and Weicks (Holland) as well as the ubiquitous Guiness and lagers.
There is also an interesting choice of bottled beers including some from Belgium and Holland.
You can order the food with reasonable confidence, although it's not particularly cheap. The local sausage and mash is good. The staff and locals are friendly, there is a no-smoking lounge bar as well a conservatory and an outdoor serving area for the summer.
Other good points; there is NO juke box, and NO gaming machine. If I have any complaint at all it is that the background music is sometimes (though by no means always) obtrusive. Oh, and the newspapers available tend to be on the pinko side. Don't expect the Daily Telegraph (I bring my own). All in all though, a highly reccommended establishment.
