Pulled pork sandwich on happy​ hour menu was awesome for $10. Porter was very good, worth trying. Other well drinks not great.

Nottingham's Tavern oozes rustic charm. We enjoyed their Happy Hour 2x during our stay. We also ate lunch and the portions were huge and flavorful, good thing we shared!

So happy we went to Nottinghams for dinner. No problem seating 14 of us for an early dinner with little ones. Kids got served quick. The filets were great, mashed potatoes, a hit. Onion Soup delicious, salads were fresh and tasty. Mojito with ginger beer,...More

The food is good, especially the specials. They have a generous happy hour, it even includes Sunday afternoons. They often have live music and a comfortable patio to enjoy it on. I recommend the onion rings, the warm brie and the pork sliders. We will...More

The food is very average. The servers aren't very attentive at all. We aren't interested in returning to this restaurant.

We ate dinner recently at Nottinghams. We made reservations to sit outside, but it didn't appear that they were crowded at all, so I'm not sure those reservations were needed. The service was average. Unfortunately, we both ordered the prime rib. It was way over...More

Yes, there is a happy hour, often with live music, and their food is really good. If the weather is nice you can eat on the patio and if it's not the upstairs dining has a view of the lake.
