    Not sure what I will be doing around Nottingham yet, just arrived on a small site at Arnold today, but pub of the month so far will be Maltings York. Had a few visits there last week, and it never let me down.

    OK there was a festival on so plenty of beers to choose from, but it will take some beating.

    Thumbs up

    I'm going in early & it's controversial . Spoilt for choice after racing trips to Nottingham & York. Honourably mentions for the cross keys http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/58112/, Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/30804/ both Nottingham & golden ball http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/53633/ the slip inn http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/58608/ ,the swan http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/43666/ all York. The winner though is the pitcher & piano Nottingham http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/58133/ It cant compete with the above for beer 2 real ales on but this is a stunning church conversion. The stained glass windows are beautiful(must be going soft in old age) . This bar is worth having a look at then head to the nearby cross keys for your fix of beer

    For me it has to be The Hinton Arms, lovely old pub, landlord makes a real effort to attract trade [has to, the busy A272 goes right by], local sourced , home cooked food, and Bowman [local] ales

    http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/13222/

    It is just unfortunate the pub is on the way to somewhere else and not a final destination

    PS, and nearby is the Flower Pots, never been but highly rated

    I'm really glad to hear the old place is still going strong. During my taxi days it was a regular watering hole of mine, and me passengers..........
    Pubs are a hobby, real ale is a passion. Oh, and like me dogs, fear no evil..........

    The two surely have to be taken in tandem? Long on my list of must visits...

    I don't have my route round Nottingham for Fri & Sat yet Gill, but will certainly start in V&F at noon on fri, before heading to the Castle 'fest, then out before it gets horribly busy to take in a couple of pubs before Beeston in the evening where I'm keen to add the ascendent Crown (new to me) to the excellent Victoria.

    Controversial indeed! But thanks for the tip re Cross Keys, I'll add it as another new one to my Nottingham collection on Saturday.

    In my opinion if you walk either way from the Pitcher & Piano you will find better pubs with better beer the P&P is a Marstons theme church if you walk along high pavement theres the Cock and Hoop good choice of beers but not one of my favourites then round the corner theres the Keens head which i rate highly about 6 raeal ales and its a Castle Rock house.
    I agree about the Cross Keys i reviewed it recently and go in whenever in Nottingham

    If talking about church conversions, the winner must be The Lanyard, North End, Portsmouth http://www.pubsgalore.co.uk/pubs/59786/

    A converted Baptist church [grave spinning anyone?], stunning interior

    Real ales & food to boot

    I have not had a pint in there, but have been in, sort of JDW but it isn't

    More here

    Oh, and The Tap next door is having a refurb, real ales there as well
