We have built two purpose made cask beer bars. If you are having a beer festival, function, corporate event, wedding or just a party and fancy having some cask ale available we can set up one or both of our bars for you. The cask’s can either sit underneath the bars or we can rack up to 18 casks for you. Contact us with your specific requirements.

Nottingham has always been famous for its beer, stretching back to medieval times.  Also known as ‘The City of Caves’ here was a perfect place to brew and store Nottingham Ale.  In the caves are over 20 Malt Kilns, brewhouses and storage cellars, hand carved out of the sandstone outcrops.  The temperature and consistency of the limestone enabled beer to be brewed all year round using the soft water filtered through the rock.  The famous folksong ‘Nottingham Ale’ spread the word all over the country.
