Nottingham Pubs

Here is a record of some Nottingham pubs visited on 16 March, 2013 on a day trip by coach from Oxford with a group of helpers from the Oxford CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) beer festival. Thanks to everyone in Oxford CAMRA for organising this enjoyable trip. Thanks also to Nottingham CAMRA for the helpful map of the city showing pubs and for negotiating discounts at some of the pubs for CAMRA Members.

1. The Canalhouse - a Castle Rock Brewery pub.
Two narrowboats inside the Canalhouse!
