This used to be an excellent Nottingham, micro-brewery pub! It was run by an owner who took pride in good beer making, employed highly professional staff and gave up space to let a nice Thai family provide wonderful meals........Then it was sold on and the current owner/manager hasn't got a clue!! The owner/manager is highly aggressive in his attitudes, ruined the beer from day one, employs poorly-trained staff, and, all in all, overseen the slow destruction of a quality pub! Nottingham has plenty of great pubs but this is certainly not one of them...With any luck it will close before long, leaving more space for good pubs to flourish!!

Rude staff, We ordered 2 halves, a diet coke and a coffee.
We were served our halves and coke but asked if we minded to wait a short while for the coffee, we said we did not mind. she went off and served others. THe staff have no concept of who to serve next. The beer we were served was horrible, Warm, Cloudy and just horrible taste. We had almost finsihed our drinks and still no sign of the coffee. When politly asked if it would be long as we were almost ready to leave the young lady snapped, I am on my own and serving. (Well not our problem. you took the order and money)
Not a very nice place, not very nice beer. Will not be returning.

Shocking beer (one was warm and cloudy - both had a really unpleasant taste to them. The service was poor and as we disliked the beer so much we left rather quickly.

This pub looked like a bit of a dump from the outside and I was wondering whether it was still the brewery tap for the Alcazar Brewery. Sure enough it us. The entrance has some nice tiling and inside, there is a traditional townhouse interior. There were 5 Alcazar beers being dispensed - Alcazar Ale, New Dawn, Vixen's Vice, Fox Tale Ale & Windjammer IPA. I plumped for the Fox Tale, which wasn't in the best of condition. Looking around, as the previous reviewer states, there weren't many people drinking the real ales. So turnover of stock could be a concern. There was a pool table in one corner and TVs were showing the Canadian F1 Grand Prix. Nearly all tables were taken on my early Sunday evening visit. So this is clearly a popular local pub where the interior belies the exterior. Worth a visit, despite the questionable beer quality.

Thai food was excellent on my recent visit. I would say restaurant standard.

Only about four of their beers available on a Friday night. Maybe they just can't shift it in enough quantity to retain quality. Most of the locals seemed to be drinking anonymous corporate lager.
