“Pre Match Drinks”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

I usually visit before most Forest home games for a couple of beers and can highly recommend, they have a good selection of beers and lagers which includes Timothy Taylor's Landlord a particular favourite of mine. This staff are friendly & they have sky sports (no sound) so you can watch the early kick off offs and it's never too busy you can always get a table. Only reason not 5 stars is some things like a large coke @ £2.30 is a bit ott. That is nit picking though & apart from that I would recommend 100%

“Really good customer service”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

We recently had a wake in the upstairs room at The Test Match. The customer care and service was excellent. They were very thoughtful and went the extra mile for us. My husband also tried out the lunchtime menu and he said the service again was excellent and the food very good.
The new management are really trying hard, lots of evidence that the pub environment is being cared for. Possibly the disgruntled opinions stated here were from previous employees who don't like change. I would suggest people give it a go and make their own minds up.

“Test Match hotel West Bridgford”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

This used to be a nice friendly pub until it recently got new management.
The staff are rude and unfriendly and have been seen pouring left over drinks into glasses and then re-serving them to customers.
this is disgusting behaviour and most of the locals do not use the place any longer.

“Average definately”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Saturday lunch time visit, during the Ashes, I was expecting something a bit more! nothing to indicate that the world famous cricket match was being held down the road. Very quiet. Bar staff did not smile! took drinks out to the back beer garden and beat a hasty retreat back in. It felt dirty - could have done with a good sweeping and hosing down.
Menu has improved offerings from last time, but portions were small and not so glamrous as the marketing blurb on the menu! Food definate average tasting..Very average visit. Not hurrying back.
