The Nottingham is a noble successor to those famed Victorian pie shops, where the workers would get their daily sustenance with a pint or so of their choosing, and the conviviality seems to have seeped down the generations.

It’s a lively, comfy old local, with squishy sofas to sink into, plenty of tables and chairs and banquette seating, and one long centralised bar, with kitchens to the rear. There are karaoke nights, quiz nights, open mic nights, just about every themed evening that a community could possibly wish for.
It’s another pub that has been transformed from a multitude of snugs and saloon bars into a more commodious whole, it’s a pleasant arrangement, and there’s also a pool table and a well-used dartboard in one corner. One little word of warning is that the front door is reached by a pair of steps, and there are others within, taking you up a few inches to new levels. For the less able-bodied, that might prevent access to a couple of areas.
There’s some original etched glass, lots of travel posters, and a display of thriving and evidently very happy cacti and related greenery in windowsill pots. And for a beer drinker, there’s deep joy – four real ales in pumps, including two from the celebrated Abbeydale folk.
Is there further icing to lather on to the top of this plump plum pudding of a pub? Yes indeed, there are frequent bus services almost at the front door. Pie and ale heaven, and so easily accessible. What’s not to like?
