The Malt Cross is one of the most distinctive pubs in Nottingham. Once a Victorian music hall, this is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle. In the run-up to Christmas you can enjoy beer and carols, while on New Year’s Eve there will be an evening of music with top Nottingham band Wholesome Fish. For details visit the website.
