Real Ale Group

Our January outing, on Thursday 25th , took 13 of us once more to Nottingham, this time to the area around Nottingham Castle.

We met as usual to catch the 6.30pm tram, quite entertaining when one member (who will remain nameless) got separated from his pass and the tram, quickly sorted by Christine, getting off at the first stop and returning to Hucknall to reunite David J with his pass.

Getting off the tram at the Old Market Square, we walked up to The Roundhouse, which used to be part of the maternity wing of the General Hospital. It was surprisingly busy for a Thursday evening, we then went across the road to The Crafty Crow. Both these public houses have been closed for most of 2023, but thankfully are now both under new management.

We then made our way to Ye Olde Salutation Inn, known as the ‘Sal’ allegedly open since 1240 AD before finishing at The Barrel Drop in Hurts Yard, a micro pub owned by the Magpie Brewery.

An excellent night, with some outstanding real ales on tap, tram back to Hucknall and home.
