Never been to the pub, but did go to air displays in the 1960s at Hucknall aerodrome, where I saw the Flying Bedstead, a VTOL device, forerunner to the Harrier, and from which I guess the pub takes its name.

Went in the other day. Can confirm that there are three real ales available. Tried 'em all and all kept well. Good service too, with the beer being allowed to settle before being topped up and handed over. Bit of a difference from the last time I went in!

Iv been drinkin in this pub for years and it has alot of history. Firstly, With comments like these against this pub no wonder they go out of business, but for people who always stay in all the time it wont matter.

This pub is a classic british pub, yes it can get rowdy n noisy but that is pubs in general these days and its all harmless fun. I rarely see fights break out.

If you come to the bedstead you will find most of the people freindly and approachable. They now have cheaper alternatives of lager n bitters, still no real ales yet but they are coming to the bedstead its just in the hands and will of the brewery.

on the whole, one of the classic english town pubs thats still alive today and hopefully for many years yet.

Well, I have lived behind this place for about 10 years, the owners then were fine, and the pub was a quiet, peaceful place to visit (apart from the Licensee's dog which barked day in and out about every 10 minutes.

However, new owners took over, and it has turned into a lager-lout noisy pub I wouldn't be seen dead in (or, more properly, I *would* be dead if I walked in!) They have turned the place into a disco-regular place, the volumes are well beyond reason (Gods help the people actually *IN* the pub!).

Regular arguments in the pub car park at the back, shouting, screaming until 5 AM. Drunk people driving away at 2 AM after a Fri or Sat disco?

Do you *really* want to be associated with this place? Somewhere to go and dissolve your brains in mediocre quality beer, with the noise beating the ears off you? Oh, and Saturdays is a good time to have a fight, so I have seen.
