It wasn't very far to walk from the Sir John Borlase Warren. But we still managed to get the wrong entrance and stumbled into what looked like a cocktail bar. The barman seemed quite relieved we didn't stay. The Falcon is a small pub with a good ale range - Oakham Citra, Titanic Plum Porter, Welbeck Abbey Jess Canadian Summer & Red Feather, Abbeydale Bootlegger & Oldershaw Heavenly Blonde. Ciders were Gwynt y Ddraig Happy Daze & Lilley's Mango. Has much character.

English Heritage do a fine job in placing Blue Plaques upon the former homes of the nation's notables, but as far as I know, none have been assigned to pubs where the same might have passed just as much time, and, moreover, rubbed along with the ordinary men and women of the day.

Cinephiles might be acquainted with the film Withnail And I by Bruce Robinson, about some of his days as a young man with his friend, the now late lamented Vivian MacKerrell.

Viv was a Nottingham man, and in the 1980s the Falcon was one of his preferred venues, in which to Quaff The Finest Ales Of Merrie England. Well, Shipstone's at any rate. His fellow drinkers probably recall his eloquent imperatives, as to the choice of music on the jukebox, and I spent many a ten pence piece on repeated discharges of Bob Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay", the Rolling Stones' "Wild Horses" and the rest.

I'm pleased and touched that the Shipstone's mirror is still there, but I don't hold out much hope for the jukebox, nor for a Blue Plaque.

Cracking former Shipstones pub, now run by Lincoln Green as said below. Had 2 well kept pints of Hood bitter back in March here, friend who is a lager drinker also had the Hood bitter and enjoyed it. Traditional friendly pub which also has the old Shipstones sign hanging in the little room to your right. Don't try the Torkard Tipple tho, barman gave us a sample - it tastes of coffee unless that's your thing

This pub has ben completed refurnished both inside and out and is now a super little bar with a small snug off to one side. There is also a room upstairs which I think will be for functions. It is the new outlet for Lincoln Green Brewery from nearby Hucknall but does offer 3 other guest beers. We enjoyed the Marion Pale Ale and the Hood Best Bitter as well as trying the Aviation from the new Doncaster Brewery. Very friendly and chatty barman (who I think is part of the owning company) and told us about the beers and their association with the Fellows Morton and Clayton pub (by the canal and station). No food as yet but they did offer home-made scotch eggs and pickle. We had a good couple of beers each in The Falcon and it adds to the delights of the beer drinking around Canning Circus. A good additional to Nottingham's very impressive real ale scene.

A one-room tavern situated on the corner of a busy road.

Mediocre, traditional pub with a mediocre beer selection. That's all that can really be said. Nothing spectacular about this place whatsoever.
