Fox and Grapes in Sneinton Market – Beer and Pizza

The Fox and Grapes in Sneinton Market is one of the latest pubs to open up in Nottingham under the Castle Rock Brewery umbrella.

Pub Lunch at the Poppy and Pint

The Poppy and Pint is a great community pub, situated inside the old British Legion building, right in the midst of Lady Bay. While it is primarily a Pub at heart serving Real Ales and Great Pub Food, it also acts as social hub for the local people and local groups. I have been here…

The Purist Burger at Bunkers Hill in the Lace Market

Bunkers Hill in Nottingham is one of those city centre pubs that is just far enough away from the main drag to feel like a local. Not too many of the gobshites bother to walk down the hill through Hockley to drink in this place, so you end up with a pretty relaxed but also…
