We started our visit to Nottingham on Saturday at this pub to the south of the station. It serves as the brewery tap for the nearby Castle Rock brewery. Ales from Castle Rock were Harvest Pale, Black Gold, Sheriff's Tipple, Elsie Mo, Screech Owl, Preservation, Helen Watts Juniper Mild & IPA V1. There were also 5 guest ales - Waen Lemon Drizzle, Bone Machine Skeleton Party, Oakham Hawse Buckler & Abstract Jungle Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout. There were also 8 ciders or perries - Gwynt Y Ddraig Black Dragon & Fiery Fox, Weston's Old Rosie, Lilley's Bee Sting Perry, Cornish Orchards Vintage Cider, Snail's Bank Fruit Bat & Kniveton Cider Company Never Mind The Hillocks. All except the latter were listed on a blackboard and are fetched from the cellar. But there was one box in the Fridge. A CAMRA discount is offered. Whilst the interior is quite traditional, we sat outside, where there is plenty of seating. A few groups were arriving for tours of the adjacent brewery and were starting with one (or maybe two) in the pub. Open at 11am, this was a good place to start.

Brewery tap for the fantastic Castle Rock brewery and a stones throw from the station. Nothing special inside - just a traditional boozer, but the range and quality (and price) of the beers is what makes this place so good. Would strongly recommend the Castle Rock milds - they're always wonderful.

An interesting boozer plonked in the middle of nothingness and ugly office blocks. It`s a few minutes walk from the train station which is handy and the ales are top quality. Group of birthday girls dropped in by mistake and did stay for one or two ("Doubles only 3 quid!") but did comment that it was "an old man`s pub" - that`ll be me then! Must visit if your on the rattler.

Still your best option if you want a decent ale before catching a train. All current Castle Rock brews were on offer and about 7 or 8 others.

The brewery tap for Castle Rock, it has all their beers on handpump plus several more. They offer discounts for CAMRA members. What better way than pass the time waiting for the train?
