“Splendid, just splendid” – this “crowded”, old-school late-Victorian boozer, cited in DH Lawrence’s debut novel, is “a nice local with good food and beers” (the former from an “interesting”, wide-ranging menu). It might not be a gourmet hotspot but it’s “all a pub should be”.

With a menu that “offers something for everyone” (from “sausages to curry, with plenty of choices for vegetarians”) – this “jolly”, “old-fashioned” late-Victorian red-brick freehouse by Beeston station, is “well worth a visit”. “The food is simple and tasty – not what you’d call a top restaurant experience but reliable and seemingly using good ingredients”. Fun fact: it was mentioned in Notts local boy DH Lawrence’s first novel, The White Peacock.

Stumbling distance from Beeston station, this red-brick Victorian freehouse is acclaimed for its “very wide range of food and drink” (“always something for everyone”, including veggies). The worst report? – “always dependable, but never quite seems to excite”.

Near Beeston station, this “highly recommended” boozer supplies a “huge range of good pub food”, with “something to suit everyone”, plus “very good real ale”; “getting a seat for eating can be difficult”, though – especially in the garden come summer.
