    Default I have booked day off for...

    .. my 2nd Nottingham Pub Crawl on 4th Oct!

    Hopefully the weather is slightly warmer this time (unlike my last visit was bloody freezing!)

    Not decided on the route but will draw up the route later this week..

    I am already starting to miss pub crawls after long time away..

    I quite like going to Arnold for a drink though most of the pubs on front street dont have any real ale if you get a dayrider ticket on NCT get off the bus going into Nottingham at sherwood there are 6 pubs on mansfield road 4 of these have real ale my favourite is the Chestnut Tree.
    If you get on another bus towards town get off at the top of mansfield rd with its junction with forest road you will see
    the Forest Tavern i think this maybe a Castle Rock house opens about 5 pm
    if you walk down the hill these are the next pubs that sell real ale
    Lincolnshire Poacher Castle rock tied house plus guests
    Nags Head 3 or 4 pumps
    Golden Fleece real ales and live music
    The Peacock beers from w&d/Marstons
    Rose of England about 4 real ales

    I think Bensons is now a fizz house when you reach the bottom of mansfield road you are then on parliament street.
    I hope this list helps you a bit if you want to know which pubs in Arnold or any other part of Nottingham i might be able to help you.

    "Look I'm telling you, Hoppy is coming. I read it on Pubsgalore and he wanted it to be warmer than last time." Nuff said.

    We will be taking the bus into Nottingham most days I expect so we can get round the pubs before the beer festival starts.

    Visited Lincolnshire Poacher before and saw it had a plaque twinning the pub with one in Amsterdam, then while in Amsterdam last year we visited that pub (Inn de Wildman I believe) and saw the plaque twinning with Lincolnshire Poacher.

    Looking forward to a good week.

    Gill, if you've not visited the Plough in nearby Radford (a mile or so West) then I'd recommend it, although, as home to Nottingham Brewery, I doubt you'll be finding many new ticks. Magpie Brewery also started up in Nottingham now, I hear; don't know what their circulation is like yet.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have started plotting them on a map - better too many to choose from than too few!

    Just found an old Mild Trail that I got out of the Nottingham Drinker in 2007, I save anything like that I find in CAMRA mags, and a lot of the pubs mentioned are on that. Will plot the others onto it as bus routes are there too.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    However, now I need to jot up route from Nottingham Rail station (with couple of JDWs if possible) and I would like sort of loop route if you know what I mean. Preferably 1 to 2 mile radius. Yate's or student bars are out of question!

    Any ideas are welcome..

    First and/or last has to be VAT & Fiddle, just outside the station entrance.

    Then head towards town and turn left at the junction.

    Then Fellows, Morton & Clayton, Canalhouse, Company Inn (JDW).

    Keep on going to Olde Trip To Jerusalem.

    Up the hill and on to the Salutation/Royal Children/Approach.

    Then head towards the main square to the Bell + 2 JDWs (one just off the square).

    Across square towards the Lace Market and try Cock & Hoop + Keans Head. Back down towards Station Street and call in the Newshouse and then back to VAT & Fiddle.

    If you're not blitzed by then there's something wrong with you.

    Wow! thanks for your help, Rob

    I have been to Vat & Fiddle, Fellows, Mortons & Clayton, Royal Children, Bell and JDW opposite Bell if I remember correctly but I am more than happy to revisit them.

    Never been to Olde Trip to Jerusalem, I was told it is oldest inn in England.

    Should be cracking day and potential 7-8 pinter trip which is my norm
