Ideal watering hole
Sep 2020 • Friends
We two friends were in Newark for the Civil War Ale Trail, and the Flying Circus was our first hostelry to visit. It was also the best. Staff have taken all the necessary precautions in these pandemic times, so we felt safe to enjoy our pint in the relaxed and hospitable surroundings. There is a wide range of beers, from English to international, and the jar of Reverend James did not disappoint, and showed that the ales are well maintained and presented. On top of that, the music selection was first class, Blues especially. Watch out as you may well be tempted do buy albums online while you sit and enjoy your pint. We were sad to leave, but the Civil War sights beckoned. As an aside, the Ale Trail is well worth a day or two out, and make sure that you visit the Flying Circus!

A welcome return to this attractive pub and another opportunity to enjoy the colourful artwork while I was waiting in the queue to be served.

Genuine music venue
Feb 2020 • Friends
It’s had several guises over the years but it’s back to what it does best - live music! Some genuine legends have played this venue, local heroes such as The Jonnyguns as well as greats such as Otis Redding and Cliff Richard.
Real ales and real atmosphere. Enjoy!

Right up my street!

Like other reviews, a no frills pub but a great atmosphere, all the same, a real ale pub but do traditional largers also to cover their bases.
Live music most Fri/Sat night, a lot of top bands play here, the owner is obviously a music lover as most are decent!

Fantastic music pub with great beer
Jul 2018 • Friends
We've played here a few times now and have always had a great night. Quirky decor and a fantastic selection of beers - just a shame I'm often driving! The owners are big music fans and it's great to see them supporting live music.

Good Pub, Good Selection Of Beers And Live Music.
May 2018 • Solo
Only been in for drinks, still like the Python interior - well I would being a fan, good selection of beers inc. real ales, it's not a cheap place but tends to keep out the riff-raff, I recommend you give it a try.

Lunchtime drinks
Jan 2018 • Friends
Lots of seating area and a good selection of beers. What put me off a little was a number of younger people who didn’t really look 18 were noisy with shouting and swearing and the drinks are expensive compared with other more friendly pubs in the town.
