New beer lover’s guide to Nottingham
Whether you prefer your ale strong, dark, bitter or pale, the real ale treasures of Nottingham are now in easy reach, thanks to a new Real Ale Trail launched by Experience Nottinghamshire this week in time for the Robin Hood Beer Festival.
The Nottingham Real Ale Trail has been designed as a walking trail for both locals and visitors to the city, highlighting 15 of the best drinking holes in Nottingham, with a focus on their real ale offer.
The trail brings together a selection of the highlights on offer here for real ale lovers – from some of the oldest pubs in the country to features such as canals, gardens and caves.
The new Real Ale Trail is designed to appeal to tourists visiting the city, and includes accommodation and dining options to compliment the real ale, as well as an overview of the real ale and beer events in the county throughout the year.
Nottingham has long been known as a favourite watering hole for the county, with centuries of drinking history in its pubs and breweries. We’ve brought together the best local knowledge when it comes to real ale so that visitors can make the most of their time exploring the city.
The pubs featured in the Real Ale Trail are the Lincolnshire Poacher, Bunkers Hill, The Cross Keys, Kean’s Head, Cock & Hoop, The Lord Nelson, Newshouse, Vat & Fiddle, Ye Olde Salutation Inn, The Approach, Malt Cross, Bar 44 at Strathdon Hotel, The Roebuck Inn, Canalhouse and the Fox and Crown.
