The 9 best beer gardens in Notts

Last month the Nottingham post asked it’s readers to name their favourite pub beer gardens. With hopefully a sunny weekend on the horizon, we thought this might be a good time to remind everyone of the winners.

Sir John Borlase Warren regular Paul Mason believes the pub, soon to be taken over by Lincoln Green, has one of the best beer gardens in Nottingham.

The pub, in Canning Circus, boasts two spacious levels of chairs and wooden tables, surrounded by trees and bushes.

Paul, 46, of Beeston, said: “It’s a very relaxing atmosphere, it’s quiet and pretty.

“As it’s outside and at the back, not everyone knows it’s there and you can’t hear the road, which means that it’s not too noisy.”

First-time visitor Matthew Powell, of Bestwood Park, agreed. Matthew, 22, said: “It’s a nice outdoor area – very spacious. It’s the first time I’ve been here but I’d definitely come again.”

Next is Rocket at Saltwater, at the top of Cornerhouse, in the centre of Nottingham.

With the terrace’s high vantage point, the beer garden has one of the best views of any Nottingham pub.

Evan Moon, who frequents many of Nottinghamshire’s pubs and beer gardens, says that the nature of the terrace makes the beer garden extra special.

Evan, of Calverton, said: “I like it because it’s a nice place to drink but also it’s a lovely outdoor area. The size means that you can stay with the group that you’ve come with. Yes, the prices are a little high but it’s a really nice place.”

Evan says the Rose and Crown, in Main Road, Cotgrave, and the Manvers Arms, on the Cross, also in Cotgrave, have good beer gardens.

But it’s the latter in particular that piques his interest.

“The Manvers Arms has two beer gardens but the one at the back is particularly great as you have a little timber frame,” the 43-year-old said.

“I’ve been to lots of beer gardens and this is definitely one of the best. It’s got a great atmosphere and is well worth visiting.”

Tracy Beat, of St Ann’s, says one of the county’s best beer gardens is at the Roebuck Inn, in St James’s Street, Nottingham. The 48-year-old said: “The pub is really friendly and the beer garden is great, as it’s quite intimate.”

Other popular Nottinghamshire beer gardens include the Victoria Hotel, in Dovecote Lane, Beeston; the Canalhouse, in Canal Street, Nottingham; the Organ Grinder, in Alfreton Road, Nottingham; and the Johnson Arms, in Abbey Street, Old Lenton.
