Nottingham Pub Beer Gardens

Summer is coming and what better way to enjoy it than sitting in your favourite beer garden with a pint of beer or cider.

Nottingham CAMRA are compiling a list of our favourite beer gardens in the area, and we want you to help.  Do you visit a pub that has a beer garden? What makes the garden a pleasant place to drink?

If you are looking for a pub with a beer garden, you might like to use our current list of Pubs with Beer Gardens. This is taken from information held on CAMRA's Whatpub website. Click on the image to open the pdf.

Send us your reviews, photos are welcome, we will publish the best here, for everyone to enjoy:

The Sir John Borlase Warren

Canning Circus, Nottingham

Situated slap bang in the middle of Canning Circus, the Sir John Borlase Warren has a sun terrace which catches the sun well into the evening.  Lincoln Green beers are always available, including Archer, Marion and Tuck. Guest beers are also available, including each weekend four handpumps from a guest brewery.  Food is available throughout the day, check with the pub for specials.

The pub also hosts beer festivals and other events, such as Gin and Jazz night. 

A cracking little garden that is very popular and very relaxing.

The Crown Inn


This has to be my favourite pub in the Beeston area.
During the summer in the garden bar, they have their battle of the breweries, with 4 different beers each from 2 breweries, whilst the main bar serves a wide selection of guest beers.  The garden is large with a load of picnic benches and there are two covered areas in case it rains or people don't like the sun too much.
I have spent many a Saturday afternoon after doing a bit of shopping, sitting in the beer garden and suddenly it is 4 hours later.
The beer itself is well stored and always a nice temperature, and the staff know what they serve or give you a taster just in case.
All in all this is a great pub in Beeston and well worth the visit.

The Plough


The Plough can be found in the small village of Wysall just south of Keyworth. A thriving family owned pub which offers food at lunchtimes and offers 5 real ales and a cider, the regular beers being Bass and Timothy Taylors Landlord. Being locale accredited there is always an offering from Nottingham Brewery, Castle Rock or Blue Monkey and occasionally something a bit different. The beer garden is awash with colour in the summer with hanging baskets, handcarts full of flowers and exotic palms. There is a red telephone kiosk and an old bus stop on display. Furniture is comfortable and shade is offered by large parasols. A great village pub to while away an hour or two.
