This is the oldest inn in England and was really unusual and very different from the usual pub. Some of it is in the caves down from the castle,there are quite a few rooms upstairs and down, it serves good food and plenty of ales etc.It was very busy when we went and the weather was ok for October so...

Visited here with my family at the end of September. Very interested spot- it is built into the rocks below Nottingham castle and purports to be the oldest pub in the UK. Had a great tasting spread of local beers (delicious) and an appetizer platter to share (room for improvement). Overall, very cool place to stop for a drink- lots... More

Purporting to be one of the oldest original pubs in the UK, this place is set into, or built into, the rocks below Nottingham Castle. Interesting, quirky, full of small rooms, narrow corridors & little staircases. Lots of little snug areas to sit & drink with friends. Didn't eat here, but looked good. Good selection of ales. Gents toilets are... More

Lovely pub set in the castle rock, friendly staff and lovely real ales. Looking forward to going again to try the food as it looked very appetising on the other customers plates !

I was in total awe as soon as I set eyes on this Inn. This Inn is located at the base of Nottingham Castle- so a great location. I sat in the outside patio for a while just to take in the surrounding. It was amazing. Then I explored the inside. Wow! a mixture of a rabbit hole and a... More

Came here as couldn't get into the Nottingham beer festival at the Castle. A really atmospheric pub with a lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. Seemed to be very popular with foreign visitors. Didn't have any food but the menu looked very nice. Would definitely pay it another visit

Came here for a bite to eat on a recommendation from a friend. I was surprised at the homeliness of this Inn, the landlord/ barman was very friendly and happy to help with anything! For anyone going to this inn, I'd recommend asking for the 'Ringing' or 'Baiting the Bull' game. Good luck! :)

On a recent trip to Notts from Australia, cousins booked a table here for lunch so we could all catch up, it is such a quaint little place and the lunch was very nice, staff were friendly. Historically it was fascinating well worth a "trip" to Jerusalem

The Trip itself is a must see. Full of atmosphere and while i was there people were just walking around to look at the inside of the pub without eating or drinking. To eat i chose a ham and cheese on ciabatta bread. Ham was beautiful, plenty of it and the cheese was tasty, however the bread could only be... More

"In a hole in the ground lived a Hobbit".. There's something very magical about this whacky English pub. If you've never yet been to this lovely place, just GO. Cut out of living rock, as they say, and used by the Knights Templar in the 12th century until the present day, Ye Trip to Jerusalem just oozes history. (http://triptojerusalem.com/) There's... More
