Last stop of the night in Nottingham was this pub/music venue. It's clearly meant for a late night crowd, with very little seating. In fact, I think it hadn't long opened on my arrival at 6:30pm. A band was setting up in the rear room, at which I took a little peep on the way to the gents toilets, where trying to have a pee was extremely difficult in the pitch black. But, maybe that's all part of the rockers experience. Ales were Imperial Classic Bitter & Babbi (described as a chocolate fudge brownie stout) & Castle Rock Screech Owl. The cider was Gwynt y Ddraig Black Dragon. Not the worst pub I'd been to during the day by far.

At the back is "The Maze", a small, intimate music venue. There's comfortable seating along one side which is great, especially as you could probably only squeeze about 200 people in so I imagine you would still be able to see ok. There's a bar in the room at the front and another one in the music venue itself, both selling the same beers - a good range of Castle Rock beers (including a fantastic mild) and Cider/Perry. The bar at the front is adorned with photo's of famous musicians and the place is definitely for the gig-goer, however, I'd go back there for a pint - just for the quality of the beer.

Big sign calling it the Maze, but the window etchings pointed it to its former name. Now a music venue. Mkes a change from a gastropub conversion or tesco direct. First ever castle rock pint and i got a loyalty card. Unique.

Decent place for live music, but not really as a pub: it's dark, cramped, pricy and doesn't open until at least 6 in the evening. The staff are nice, but if there's something on in the back room (there usually is) you can feel your life slipping away while you wait to get served in the front (the pub area). Very good selection of all sorts of beers, however, and a good range of spirits. Could do worse on Mansfield Rd, but then again could do a lot better.
