I was probably in the Lion the same time as Ellisref. It's been almost 6 years since I was last in Basford and I enjoyed my visits to the Fox & Crown and the Horse & Groom. But, the Lion was on a different level. Service from the young lady was excellent. She was even happy to grant me a retrospective CAMRA discount on ordering a second half. It's 15p off per pint of ale or cider. The ale selection in itself was excellent - Castle Rock Harvest Pale, Bass, Pentrich Red Skies, Shiny Dr Dank, Blue Bee Triple Hop, Purity Longhorn IPA, Beartown Crème Brulee, Wilde Child Hedonistic Experience (described as a chocolate ganache stout), Beermats Charismatic, Magpie Belong To Earth & Bath Gem. But, my eyes were eventually drawn to a cider blackboard - Charnwood Dabinett, Bottle Kicking Cider Company Scrummage, Broadoak Purple Haze, Skidbrooke General Ludd, Heck's Porter's Perfection, Orchard Revival Putloe Pucker & Weston's Old Rosie. 4 ciders I'd never had before. So, I enjoyed a half of each. Staying inside, I managed to steer clear of any doggy doo. In fact, I spent a very pleasant hour or so here, leaving me well behind my planned schedule! Another great Nottingham pub.

Good select of ales, mainly local, and ciders. Extremely dog friendly (award winning) sadly some owners need to be reminded to clean up in the garden after their charges - mainly pitbulls (dogs and owners).

Another real ale gem. Excellent choice and quality, a real old-fashioned pub with loads of character. They have a feature inn the bar where you can view down a deep shaft into the cellar area, presumably this is an old delivery shaft to the cellar. The food looks very good, live music (good standeard live jazz on Sunday afternoons) and other styles throughout the week. Great mix of ages here, all very friendly and as a pub should be. Within sight of the old Shipstones Gold Star brewery building tucked away in Basford, Nottingham. Tram stop runs a few yards away. Various events and festivals. Well worth a visit.

Very good on my last visit. My favourite out of the three on the Basford Tram Route. Excellent wide choice of beers, styles and strengths and quality pints all round.

I was there in winter this time, but there is a large beer garden for use in the summer.

Right next to Shipstone Street Tram Stop.

Great atmosphere, friendly locals, great choice of real ales, free live music. A must visit if you're in the area - and the tram stops here as well! What more do you want? A legendary hostelry and deservedly so.
