Been here a few times a d had mixed experiences. The bar staff are either brilliant or rude, the food is either very nice or fairly cold and unappetising. The Wetherspoons on St James's Street is a better bet.

A JD Wetherspoon pub in the heart of Nottingham. A large bar on the groud floor which is great for eating or drinking and a smaller bar upstairs which overlooks the market square. Open from 7am for breakfast and until midnight every day of the week. Children welcome for family dining until 8pm and if you have a large group just give us a ring and we can reserve you a table.
