Somewhere between great character and a bit rough

It has the vibes of an old, urban landmark. I encountered an authentic, but pleasant enough interior, populated by an array of friendly characters of all types, hard music, and a bar adorned cleverly with latest news headlines. Service was really nice. Overall, a somewhat shrill experience, but... read more

This used to be a good pub 6-7 years ago but I won't go back again if someone paid me! The manager is shocking! His attitude stinks and starts petty little arguments over pointless things. The prices for beer are extortionate for what you get anyway and there are plenty of better drinking establishments in Nottingham and Hockley. So save... More

From the outside, a tired, worn down place. When you get inside, culture shock as there's not a lot to indicate externally this Rock / Punk? themed boozer. Fairly quiet when I went in, early afternoon, looked to be mainly students in. Does karaoke and not surprisingly Bands, accent on the Rock side, heavy metal it seemed to me from... More

Another interesting pub that is located a bit further out from the centre and maybe not one you might consider visiting, particularly if you're a sensitive soul. This is unashamedly a rock pub with posters and fliers around the walls (and ceiling). There are several real ales on offer, but don't expect much in the way of wine for the... More

A place to hang out and have a couple of pints. This is the place where you go and listen to music, with an emphasis in punk. The décor is quite simple and based on gigs flyers and posters. Seems it had better days in the past but still a nice place

Used to be a good hangout for a cheap drink and a good gig, now it provides neither. There is a place for pubs like this with 'character' but character isn't an excuse for serving flat, expensive pints. Living off a reputation it doesn't deserve.

I've been a patron of the Angel since I was 18 and it has outlasted all the other places I used to go drinking in those days. I think because it stays true to its core patrons. We don't need fancy toilets (for fancy, read toilets with seats and sinks!) just somewhere where we can listen to the music we... More
