The Ernhale is friendly, it does cheap as chips food and the staff are a friendly bunch of souls. Also, they normally have a good selection of beer on tap.
The Greyhound has some lovely ales and the staff are really friendly. It's a bit of a shabby pub to walk into with old stools, a pool table and it's a bit rough round the edges - but don't judge a book by its cover.
Dino Cafe & Wine Bar
Dino Cafe & Wine Bar is a very pretty wine bar, tucked away from the rest of the city. The fairy lights and soft furnishings make for a lovely night out and the food is good.
The Steam Boat Inn
There really is nowhere better for a relaxing pint on a sunny day than Trent Lock. The Steam boat Inn is a lovely little pub with a gorgeous view and a family atmosphere. Good service.
Forest Tavern is a good old fashioned boozer right at the top of the hill leading out of town on Mansfield Road. Perhaps as well known for being a music venue, as for the wide range of beer. But it is a very good place to spend a few hours.
If you are looking for traditional pub grub look no further than the Stratford Haven. There's a good selection of beers and ales here, and the sandwiches at lunchtime are brilliant.
Sunday lunch is generally busy, but at any time of the day the Stratford just feels like a friendly buzzing local.
Slug & Lettuce
Slug & Lettuce is a very bright, very modern and pretty spacious Slug and Lettuce. It's in a good location in the Cornerhouse as you get some people popping in for a quick pre cinema drink, while others may begin the night here taking advantage of some of the offers.
It's good fun and a great meeting spot but can get a little busy.
Pitcher & Piano
I'm sure there's not many places that could get away with having a bar in a church but the Pitcher & Piano does it well. It's an easy place to find in Nottingham and the booths mean you can have a private drink or join the masses on the cheesy dancefloor.
Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem
There cannot be a more character packed pub in the city than Ye Olde Trip To Jerusalem. Tucked into the caves close to Nottingham castle, this place does attract plenty of tourists.
But they do plenty of good beers and, if you explore the different floors, you can normally find a table to sit around to take in the surroundings.
