Bunkers Hill  

After a major refurbishment Bunkers Hill now resembles a Hog's Head or places of that ilk, but with ice hockey memorabilia.

That said, it still has its merits, not least the five real ales on offer seven days a week. These are from both regional's and micros and are all well kept. In addition to the ales, they have a cask cider, a selection of wines and draught continental beer.

You enter at the front past a roped off section where a cafe-style experience can be had in the summer. It also reduces easy access from trouble makers. Once inside, the bar is opposite you and is dark wood on a dark wood floor split by a column.

The seating is a mixture of benches, sofas and high tables and stools. The walls are dark and dotted with pictures and bits and bobs, but all tastefully done. There is a second function room available for hire.

Food is served here both lunchtimes and evening with a Sunday roast from. Times are Tuesday to Saturday 12-8 and Sunday 12-7. The choice is a mixture but resembles other pubs of this type. Prices are fair but there is little main course choice for vegetarians - though the starter selection caters well.

Access for the disabled is possible and their is a designated toilet.

Live music is played here.



XXXB and Nottingham Rock were excellent. All seemed to be moving and there was a good selection of forthcoming ales (Abbedale, Deuchars). Pub is really nice after the refurbishment. I would not agree with your comments that it is like a hogs head.....have you ever been to one? More like and All Bar One if anything.....the type of customer it attracts underlines this. I would say that with the Cock and Hoop and the new Keans Head it is the classiest and best real ale pub in the city. Sunday lunch is great. Agree with your comments on veggie food though. Very good value and service. Great atmosphere, music, well managed (undesirables are quickly exited) good choice of cask ales. Not big enough. Fills up very quickly. They should have upstairs bar open more often. (6/2/05)
