Mind your head and where you step as you enter a dimly lit beamed room upon room upon room and out into the back yard where you can sit should you wish. A great easy party atmosphere for those enjoy drinking and a typical old fashioned pub in which to while away the hours. Busy and bustling all the time,... More

Maybe not the oldest pub in Nottingham as claimed, but certainly the most interesting and cozy one Inside and outside are both great, and you should at least have a look inside for the part of the pub that is hewn directly into the sandstone.

Nice food, great beer, lovely atmosphere, places to sit inside and outside. In the shadow of Nottingham castle - worth a visit!

I expected this to be a tourist trap. It isn't. It's just a normal pub, albeit seriously old built over many levels with nooks and crannies everywhere. They serve an excellent range of beers (including the 3 half pint tasters) and the food is really good as well. Definitely worth visiting not just because of the history but because its... More

Very unusual and worth the visit, only had a drink but food looked good. Very busy little spot but plenty of seating outside (weather permitting)

Historic real ale pub built at the base of Nottingham Castle walls.Lots of tiny seating areas inside which added to interest of pub. Also this may have helped to keep out the drunken teenage mobs in pubs by the canal.

Let's start by clearing up the Oldest Pub In England claim. It's not. The caves against which the pub stands were created around 1050, and there is evidence to suggest that the area in which the pub stands was used to brew beer. But the building itself dates from 1650, and was first used as a pub in 1751, when... More

Visit for the experience alone. The beer was quite expensive even by city centre standards, but this is the oldest Inn of the UK, and is, as youd expect, full of tourists soaking in the history. The pub itself is built into the sandstone of the castle, so if you like caves, you will be right at home! Staff are... More

My wife & I stopped off for a quick pint there before our amazing meal at a Restaurant Sat Bains. It was a fitting prelude to our meal. The beer was excellent and it really is a unique experience. No visit to Nottingham is complete without a trip to Ye Olde Trip!

Great atmosphere and surroundings. The oldest pub in England, or at least the oldest site of a pub. Friendly staff, good beers, a great visit
