A “long-standing favourite”, this “brisk and friendly” red-brick late-Victorian boozer serves a “splendid range of beers” and a solid food menu[e]. One great fan and regular, though, feels “the dining room feels utilitarian and a little underwhelming compared to the bar”.

“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.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
