Olde Trip to Jerusalem  

The Olde Trip is a classic pub not only in Nottinghamshire, but in the UK. This is an old pub with plenty of history.

Partly carved out of the rock on which the castle stands above, it has a cellar that needs little cooling. Recently refurbished by Hardys and Hansons (the owners), there was outcry that the removal of a wall had damaged a listed building.

However, English Heritage gave it an award, so the debate will go on. However, those who come to it for the first time still marvel at the quaintness of it. Its history dates back to 1189 and you can see the history on display and even take a cave visit by prior arrangement.

There are a number of rooms, reduced since the refurbishment on two levels. Seating is stools and wooden chairs and the refurbishment has given everyone more room to move.

Food is served 11-10pm and is traditional wholesome grub.

Prices can be a little on the steep side, but this is a tourist trap. Traditional pub games are played and you can sit outside should you need the sun in summer. There is also a real fire for those cold winter nights. The refurbishment has also meant that the disabled now have good access and facilities.

Not far from the station either, only a five minute walk round the corner, click on the link for a map.

No accommodation here.

Dogs welcome.
